It’s time to show a model of a radio-controlled walking robot.
We used slightly modified models of KL-204 mechanism by bobsax from the Thingiverse web-site https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4463302 and the joystick case by Frederic_JELMONI https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3791343.
And we express our deep gratitude to the authors for the excellently made models.
We will need the parts of the KL-204 walking robot
Joystick case parts
Two TiTAN-I boards
Two Li-Ion battery charging boards for TP4056
MX1508 Engine Driver
And two Li-Ion batteries.
We used a 180 mAh battery for the joystick
And for the robot a 1200 mAh battery from a Samsung cell phone
A Dual-axis joystick
And Two motors with reducers
We also added an ultrasonic distance sensor to avoid collisions with obstacles
Do not forget that the TiTAN-I board does not contain its own 3.3 volt stabilizer. We used two of these for the battery power.
And wires for the mounting
For our robot, we bring the parts together to complete the scheme
And we place it in the body of our robot and install the antenna on the top cover.
This is the design we’ve got.
And for the remote control, we complete the scheme by bringing together these parts.
We place it in the case of our remote control panel and glue it together. This is how it turn
What’s left is to download the archive “TITAN-OCTOPED.zip” from our page by clicking on this link and upload the project “TITAN-octoped” to the control panel, and “TITAN-octoped-receiver” to the robot.
Our robot has an ultrasonic distance sensor, but it is not used in the program. You can enable it yourself using the example “example_14_grove_ultr”.zip” from our website.
