Step 1: Building the Mini-Walking Bot. Here are the parts for building the bot

ROBOTIX parts for Mini Walking Robot (L) Elbow connectors, Wheel Foot(s), Arms (75mm), 2 Legged Walker, Drive Axle, and Low Speed Motor

Step 2: Attach the Drive Axle to the Low Speed Motor shaft.

Attaching the Drive Axle to the Low Speed Motor

Step 3: Place the Low Speed Motor/Drive Axle on top of the 2 Legged Walker

Attaching the Low Speed Motor/Drive Axle to the 2 Legged Walker

Step 4: Attach Elbow Connectors and Wheel Foots to (2) Arms

Building the Mini Walking Bot’s Back Legs

Step 5: Attach the left leg part to the 2 Legged Walker

Attaching the left leg part to the 2 Legged Walker

Step 6: Attach the right leg part to the 2 Legged Walker

Attaching the right leg part to the 2 Legged Walker

Step 7: Here’s the final assembled Mini-Walking Bot!

The completed Mini-Waking Bot!

Step 8: Build the Distributive Controller using a PICAXE and a Handy Cricket


Step 9: The Mini-Waking Bot Distributive Controller (DC) built using a Radio Shack Electronics Learning Lab


Step 10: Attaching the DC to the Mini-Walking Bot using the Power Cord

Nice project but my eye focused in the control panel with the breadboard u have. WOW!!! Where u get this stuff? I want it!!! PLZ tell me some details about
I also HAD one.
 radio shack. i have one too

Its a nice system for breadboarding projects. Check out my Synapse-Wireless web page for additional breadboarding projects. http://www.family-science.net/Synapse_Wireless.htm

I'm working a small video clip that I will post on TeacherTube (like You Tube but for educators). I should have it available next week.
how are we ment to make the arms and such

This project was designed to study the gaits of a table top walking bot. An arm can easily be added to this bot using additional parts from the ROBOTIX construction kits.
can you make it without the ROBOTIX parts oh i forgot to say that is pretty rad
Mrdon219 (author)  joedacoolguy7 years ago
With the appropriate mechanical parts like gears and plastic fab pieces, its very possible to be such a walking bot from scratch. The ROBOTIX kit allows for quick prototying of bots.

Hey can you post a video of this in action? It looks to be great but a video is worth 36,000 words!

The Mini-Walking Bot is controlled using 2 small microcontroller devices: PICAXE microcontroller, and a Handy Cricket
