Longbow Hexapod is a high performance 6 legged robot designed for walking over rough terrain. Robot has six legs. Each leg is made up of three NRS-995 17kg/cm torque dual bearing metal gear servo motors. Robot comes with high performance omnidirectional IR remote control and can be upgraded with the wireless RC remote control with the range of 1Km from NEX Robotics.
Robot's motion controller has 18 servo channels to control robot's 6 legs and 2 channels for pan and tilt action of the wireless camera / sensor pod. Motion controller board has eight 10 bit ADC's available in 3 pin headers for easy sensor interface and external interrupt switch. It also has I2C , SPI and TTL UART bus for adding more payloads like wireless receiver, GPS, inertial navigation unit, environmental sensors etc.
Robot is powered by high performance 5000mAh low self discharge NiMH rechargeable battery. Robot comes with intelligent NiMH battery charger, which extends the battery use able life. Robot has separate battery monitoring module to predict battery life.
Robot is shipped fully assembled and ready to use. Robot comes with application examples for remote control and 4 different types of motions in AVR Studio 6. Robot motion control is based on motion control library from NEX Robotics. The documentation CD contains all the manuals, necessary software's and application examples written by using the motion control library files form NEX Robotics.
Important: IR remote will not work properly in open sunlight. For outdoor environment RF remote control is recommended.
