OZER Hexapod Open-Hardware Robot

OZER Hexapod #OpenHardware #Robot that can be #3dprinted

OZER is a work in progress to develop a totally functional hexapod for exploring functions on unstructured terrains. Keeping as main objectives the development of a low cost, easy to construct, assemble and operate structure which allows the reconfiguring of the platform for new uses.

In this version (V-0.1) the robot is able to perform basic operations such as standing, and walking; the control set is command through SSH connection with a feedback video feed form the Raspberry Pi camera module. Basic sequences for walking and turning are implemented deep in to the Arduino microcontroller to simplify communication between the Raspberry Pi board and the rest of the hardware.
