This Spring quarter 60 students divided into 15 teams to design and build robot walkers. Two stepper motors drive a set of legs on each side. These legs are formed from a pair of six-bar linkages that provide coordinated rectilinear movement of two feet on each side providing stable legged locomotion.
I am always amazed by the creativity of the students in the design of the personalities of these walkers.
The ribbons and medals decorate the walkers with the three best times through our autocross course.
