Robot Without Ankle Servos

Last week I reconstructed Knight Templar II without the ankle servos and made a simple demonstration with it walking though not very smooth. Today I spend a couple of hours and achieve this. I start off with the swinging. I think I wouldn't have figure it out have I not done the swinging and gone from there.

The walking is ok but it requires a great deal of improvement because it can walk safely on different type of surface and ready for the next competition.

I hope you find this video help in helping you make your robot walk. If you like this video please click the thumb up 'like' bottom.

Thank you.

Robot Walking No Ankle Servos Robotis RX24

In this video, I have Knight Templar 2 angle servos remove. This lowers the robot center of gravity making it more stable. I put the RX24 to the shoulders to give it more powerful arm strikes. The middle servos from the arm is remove to reduce the weight.

This is as much a challenge as it is a test to see if a robot can walk without ankle servos. We know from previous experiment that we can live with loose ankle servos but how about having no ankle servos and still joints.

This video is my first attempt to customize the forward walking gait. There is still long way to go. I must say it makes it harder but not impossible. I believe a good timing would also make a good walking.

BTW side walking and turning is absolutely no problems. For fighting competition that's all that is needed so can be a good combination.
