i am a 2nd year mechanical engg student from punjab engineering college chandigarh
i have worked on some bi ped projects and the main problem one encounters is the selection of very slow geared motors and the proper mechanism
u can use some springs and motors and make it a walking hybrid (with 2 legs and two wheels )
however it u want it to walk on any terrain and adjust accordingly it would b a bit difficult\
even though give it a try
and let me know if u come up with some ideas

hi this is nithin first of alll thanks a lot for giving a response for my post i am now doing my year in E.C.E .
our email id is ngeves@rediffmail.com

thanks for telling about the gearing problems

coul you please tell us like what type of motors you have used in your biped and what is the gearing system also about what material you have used for your links between the joints. we are looking for some light weight materials for our links we willl be using the spring as you have suggested . we are also planning for a vision system with a digital cam.

please be in touch with us we willl surely share our ideas
once again thanking you

What about the balance algorithms??

What size do you plan to keep the robot to??

Well we have decided on the size of the robo to be in 60-90cms of height with a max of 6 degrees of freedom on one leg but we havenot find a right material for the connecting links can you give some suggestions

Aluminium is the best !! It's light weight, durable and has got high workability. u'll get Al sheets of varying thickness 1mm,2mm,3mm etc

hi thanks for tht could you help us in one more thing like how do we calculate the specifications that is required 4 the motor like what should be its torque like as we mention we would like to keep its height abt 60-90cms so it should be able to move the links.
