DEPUSH, Huazhong University of Science and Technol
The DEPUSH HexCrawler robot has a dated control system and walking mechanism making it unstable and clumsy. DEPUSH asked our team to update the HexCrawler in conjunction with HUST students from Wuhan, China. The team redesigned the robot's chassis and legs to increase mobility and stability, and implemented a powerful control system capable of precisely manipulating the robot's limbs. The resulting product is a 6 Degree-of-Freedom hexapod and accompanying computer interface with applications in a variety of robotics research areas.
