A big project, did it worth? The biggest challenge in this project was integrating and tuning our system, because big hydraulics, heavy frames, and tons of sensors have a lot of variability that needs to be checked. We used an open-source hexapod library to control how it walks, which has been used on much smaller hexarobots, and works great. Once the mechanical system is more reliable, it will be able to walk easily.
The sheer amount of dedication, resilience, and tenacity this took was remarkable. It’s always painful when the idea in your head takes longer than anticipated. But have to say, the result is one of a kind. Your team pretty much did the impossible! I love the result, or at least the result that was temporary!
