Meet the DFRobotShop Omni Rover

Posted on August 14, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

Most three and four wheel drive omnidirectional robots cost $500 and up and are usually intended for the research rather than the hobbyist market. For those who have the knowledge to design and build their own omniwheel driven robot, matching all the parts can be a daunting task: finding the right motors, sourcing the wheels, [...]

How BIG Can I Make My Robot?

Posted on February 27, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

You’re thinking about building your first robot and have grandiose thoughts of making something like an exoskeleton or a giant robotic “pet” to strike fear into your enemies. As much as we dream about these robots and see them in movies, there are not many around for a reason. For your first build, you need [...]

It looks like quite a custom setup - you're sending the signals from the Arduino via a breadboard; can't quite tell how power is split.
Are you using standard AL5 arm mechanics, or are some of the brackets custom?
The first thought is that the servos are not getting enough power to keep them in place.

Time ago, while I was working to the Exapod 'exoskeletons' I did a version for the Lynxmotion's Arm AL5.
I did a first version that after I've improved both aesthetically and technically aspect.
Now I'm printing all parts for to test that all fits well on the mechanics.
This is a little preview.
