The Quads are Coming!

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

The arbotiX Robocontroller has been a hit so far in the robotics community! We’re starting to see projects popping up that take advantage of this awesome new controller, and specifically a few quads have caught our attention in the TRC, so we figured we’d share.

Here is forum member Sthmck’s quadrapod robot progress so far, which showcases a robot built using the Bioloid system and autonomously reacting to input from some Sharp IR sensors.

lnxfergy’s new lizard-inspired quadrapod, Sally:

And finally, lnxfergy’s fully autonomous Firefighting robot, Issy:

Some great progress so far and we can’t wait to see more!

On a side note: We’ve been a bit quiet lately because we’re in the process of moving to a much larger facility where we can build bigger, better robots! We’ll get caught up soon.
