This is the first of many posts documenting the journey of this robot build. It was exciting to fire up the very first knee-joint test and see some results without anything breaking, so I made a quick video clip showing how it’s looking. Video after the break.
This is very much a mini sneak peak, expect higher quality video and editing for future videos 🙂
The control board shown is an experimental Arduino Nano based potentiometer deck that sends position information via i2c. More on why I’m using i2c will be covered in another post. There is definitely some PID tuning on the actuator in store, but since this was just a belt-tension test I haven’t bothered yet.
Grayhound build information coming soon!
