Well, it was a long time coming, but here a video on driving the joints of our walking robots.
Excellent info clearly explained!
This project will take a while to complete.
I’m trying to work through all the possible design considerations including the maths.
Last thing I want is for my Inmoov robot to fall over and break. 🙂
I’m working on the basis, if I can explain it to others, then I have a reasonable understanding myself.
Also, if I have made an error, someone may spot it and let me know before I find out the hard way 🙂
I agree with that philosophy, my father a physicist says ‘The best way to learn something is to teach it’! Regarding it falling over and breaking you could do what Boston dynamic does with a simple track on the ceiling and a safety cable, here is a video of one of their early prototypes: https://youtu.be/SD6Okylclb8
I can’t attach the track to the ceiling in my home (the wife would kill me 🙂 ) but I did build a frame on casters that can help support the robot when I first start testing. 🙂
