Goal is to have the robot walking around without spending too much time on making it. To make choises easy, and prevent complications further along the building process, design constraints are defined. This has much impact on cost, complexity, and time to make the robot. Following constraints were defined for this robot:

  1. Simple robot design, using ordinary tools to make the robot
  2. Inexpensive and simple robot parts
  3. Much room for experimenting with algorithms
  4. Sensors for autonomous movement
  5. Wireless operation by using a standard robot servo controller
  6. Hexapod (6 legged) walking robot design
