6-Legged Robot to Mimic Ant Locomotion

Note: The Ant Robot project was done during 2011 - 2013 when Madi was a master's student. The robot built in this LINK is inspired by our Ant Robot. Abstract Ants are six-legged insects that can carry loads ten times heavier than their body weight. Since having six legs, they are intrinsically stable. They are powerful and can carry heavy loads. For these reasons, a new parallel kinematic structure is proposed for a six-legged ant robot. The mechanical structure is designed and optimized in Solidworks. The mechanism has six legs and only two DC motors actuate the six legs so…
