8 DOF Biped Robot using Dynamixel AX-12A Servos and Arduino

Buoyed by the success of my 6 DOF biped I decide to take the next step (no pun intended). I purchased another Dynamixel AX-12A servo for each leg to give me eight degrees of freedom (DOF) in total.…


6 DOF Biped Robot using Dynamixel AX-12A Servos and Arduino

Having mastered driving Robotis Dynamixel AX Servos with an Arduino, I wanted to do something practical with that knowledge. How about building a biped robot? There are plenty of biped robot kits…


Driving Robotis Dynamixel Servos with Arduino

In my continuing quest for knowledge about robotics I recently bought some Robotis Dynamixel AX-12A servos, with the intention of hooking up to an Arduino. These awesome little servos pack a real…


Using an MPU-6050 Gyroscope & Accelerometer with Arduino

I recently purchased a SparkFun (InvenSense) MPU-6050, six degrees of freedom Gyroscope & Accelerometer from Robosavvy. It's a great bit of kit, which combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis…
