HEXAL-R by Vibhu Vivek

India's first Six legged robot made from scrap.

In this project , a model of a Six-Legged walking
machine is introduced, considering the biological locomotion
principles of a spider. Principles from the nature
are used both for the geometry of the model and
architecture of the controller. A unique tripod gait
pattern has been simulated on a computer and then
implemented on the prototype. This gait pattern gives
the robot six independent direction of motion. With
this biological like controller the machine can be
modified move on unknown, uneven ground automatically
detecting and climbing obstacles. 

More details can be obtained in the following web
page(including photos)

I want to start a new concept of 'CHEAP ROBOTICS' for research 
work using SCRAP !!.

My robot cost us about $800.
