Low Cost Quadruped: MUTT Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The field of educational and research robotics is alight with development platforms that fall short of being interesting and novel. Our goal was to create a quadruped for use as an entry level research project for students and educators. Reducing cost through the use of commercially available parts combined with rapid-prototyping, we built a platform that can be used to teach and learn legged locomotion for less than $600 (half the price of a Turtlebot 2 from OSRF). Our robot was able to walk in basic form using limited actuation; this was limited by the components we chose - specifically the motor controllers for part of the actuation. We expect that using components better suited to the task could accomplish what we set out to achieve.
