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'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 rechargeable battery and the package also contains smart 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.
