Spider Robot


spider.jpg (77555 bytes)

This six-legged robot was developed during the interdisciplinary collaboration between the 2000 Capstone Senior Mechanical Design and Electrical Engineering Projects courses at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.  It performs its walking sequences by using "tripod gait" motions simulating the leg movements of real insects.  It's pretty cool to watch this guy in action.  Out of all the robots on my homepage, I found that this one was the most scary!  This robot controls a series of servos actuating the leg segments.  Contact sensors on the bottom of the robot feet allow it to detect when a foot touches the floor.  It also has an infrared proximity sensor for detecting forward objects and a photocell for detecting light sources.  This robot is controlled by the Handy Board robot controlled and two SSC II servo controllers.
