|The CyberBug is a six-legged robot that can walk and rotate around its own axis. The six legs have three joints each, and the position of each leg is calculated real-time 50 times per second. To do this, we use a SHARC DSP as the robot's brain.
To control the robot, we have made a PC program (using Borland C++) with witch we can select algorithms, speed, accelleration etc. The communication device is a bidirectional radio link (433 MHz). Furthermore, we have a sonar placed on top of the robot. Thus, we can send data from this to the PC, and generate a "radar-like" image on the PC.
