Project Wolf : Iot Multiterrain Quadruped with Raspberry Pi
Link : http://www.instructables.com/id/Wolf-IoT-Multi-terrain-Quadruped/
The concept of this robot design is to create a quadruped that can easily transform between walking mode and rover mode (aka wheel traversing). The walking mode will be used for operations that are not ideal for wheels such as scaling a vertical wall or traversing over extremely uneven terrain. The rover mode is used for flat terrain and faster traveling time. The robot is controlled wirelessly viaWifithrough a webpages that I made exclusively for this robot. Beside the transforming capabilities, I also added an IMU sensors, GPS, and Lidar for self-orientation and autonomous functionality in the future. All the data is logged via IBM Watson services and can be easily review in graph format for data analytics.The goal of this project is to create a low-cost multi-terrain traversing robot prototype for search and rescue operation, but for now it will be uses to satisfy my desire to have a transformer.
