    Hello everyone 🙂

    this is an absolutely amazing project. I am very thankful that this is available as an open source project.

    I’m still at the beginning of building an InMoov. Regarding the walking of robots on two legs, the law of centrifugal force came to mind.

    If a flywheel (or two) were running in the torso, the energy consumption would not be nearly as high as with additional weights on the feet. In addition, something like this also has an effect on the statics of the overall construction if the balance has to be kept with lead feet.

    The main problem is to catch the center of gravity while the robot is standing on one leg and/or moving the other leg.

    Centrifugal force could also catch and balance extreme centers of gravity in these moments.

    That’s just an idea 🙂

    Thanks for this project Gael (and the supporting community)!
    Thanks!

    • Hello Andreas! Welcome to this big project. We are here to help each other. It is a pleasure to know you. Add some pictures of your project during the assembly in your album. I like to see all the different versions of inMoov robot.

      • This project is very big and in every detail I can see, which problem stands in focus. So I think, I’ll build the InMoov first like the handouts/plans here.
        For now, I’m an absolutly Noob and will learn many new stuff.
