BEAM Robotics- based on Nervous Network Technology
This robot has 2 distinct neural layers. The primary layer consists of the bicores necessary
to generate the walking gait. This is a multi-master set up with two slaves.
Indeed the net can be pared down, but it's not my style, I like to have things to play around with. ICs are quite inexpensive, so throwing around a few extra inverters is not an issues.
Eagle .sch file:
5M2 was built with what
ever could be found at the time. The resistors, eyes, a socket, diodes, and capacitors were salvaged from a VCR.
Well here are some pictures of the robot. All you need to do is to click on the picture and a pop-up window will load showing it to you! These are very hi resolution phots, I think 2048 x 1537. Enjoy and there are many more to come.
These photos are at the moment only of the robot during it's construction phase later on, I will add the completed machine.
Pictures are worth 1000 words, but just how much is a video? Well that depends simply on the fps of the movie, so as each frame is a picture, simply carry out this calculation: words= (fps x movie time in seconds) x 1000.....
