Abstract

The Red Legs robot was created in 2011 to be a sensitive, bipedal walking platform. However, over the past few years, Red Legs has been neglected and has fallen into a state of disrepair. The goal of this project is to design working systems to enable the Red Legs robot to carry out basic movements and set up an intuitive framework for future work. The project also aims to create comprehensive documentation along the way. To achieve this goal, the robot is examined and studied to find out precisely its current state, and the manner in which it works. The project attempts to improve the designs of existing parts and software, and make necessary changes to allow for more complex movements.
