Authors: Justin Shumaker
Date/Pages: March 2009; 10 pages
Abstract: Presented is an overview of the work accomplished toward the development of a fully autonomous mesoscale hexapod robotic system. A circuit board and mobility system were developed in-house during the summer of 2008 to serve as the first generation of this platform. Much of the attention for this project has been focused on designing the system to be lightweight, small, and computationally capable of autonomous behavior using state-of-the-art embedded electronics components.
