This is a biped based on the BRAT design from a few years ago, updated to be controlled by the raspberry pi and so giving access to usb peripherals, camera wifi etc.

The robot is a 6 servo biped walker featuring three degrees of freedom (DOF) per leg. The robot can walk forward or backwards and turn in place left or right with variable speed. It can even do lots of Robo-One style acrobatic moves.

Currently using the interrupt driven servoblaster software to drive 6 servos.

Arms and head will increase the servo count, so may offload servo processing to an arduino in addition to the raspberry pi.

Hi Mike!
I am amazed by your work, and was wondering if I could learn more! I am a student in Australia, and am learning to use my Raspberry Pi in robotics.

Thanks

Jack
