|Hi my name is Oriol Escote.
This is my second robot, and my first attempt at a legged robot. I really built this low-cost robot in preparation for a robotics course project.
NYA is a six-legged robot who has at this time only one function. It moves around in all directions, and changes paths when IR photodiodes detects an obstacle.
While 3 legs are in the air, the other 3 make the robot go foward.
Here is a list of NYA's features:
Specifications (metric) : L 220mm x 200mm x h110mm
An 6v 1.2A/h battery delivers enough power to walk for several hours ( it depends on the terrain ).
Total constuction time was about 4 months, and I probably spent less than $25 for parts.
