Walking robots with more than 2 legs (tripods, quadpods..) have the inherent advantage of stability over biped robots

looks great!

Have been able to write additional gaits so far (like walking, climbing stairs, etc)?

Thanks for your compliment.

No, I did not, yet. I'm awaiting a new power supply which should be shipped soon. I was trying to run to robot on batteries, but this was not such a success.

The robot had a hard time standing up with lower speeds. It could only lift itself for about 70% and then stopped, because of the higher torque.

The new power supply can feed 4,5 A of power, which should be fine. I've bought it for 10 euro's in a second hand online shop. I was thinking of buying a lab-power supply, but these are around 200 euro's or more. Will buy one of those later on.

Stay tuned 8)

Hello there!

Thought it would be a good idea to keep you guys informed about the progress.
Currently working on a multi-thread application. This makes me able to control several actions via a background thread. I'm planning on running the robot almost completely via this thread.

Also, the joypad thing comes to life piece-by-piece. It should be able to control the robot via this soon.

Stay tuned for progress. 8)
