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 from…
