Project: AMOS walking machines*

AMOS-WD02 (Advanced MObility Sensor-driven Walking Device) is a simple platform for experiments with neural perception - action systems. This walking machine has 4 legs, each with 2 degrees of freedom, and one back joint referring to the morphology of reptiles. In addition, this machine has IR-sensors and integrated auditory-tactile sensors for different reactive behaviour; e.g. obstacle avoidance and sound tropism.
