Summary This project involves the design and implementation of a single-legged walking stick robot that utilizes a unique locomotion method. The robot is fully autonomous and can avoid obstacles. Forward locomotion is achieved by rotating the back end of the device up and over the front end. The robot consists of a long bar that connects two boxes that each house electrical and mechanical components. Wireless RF communication is used between the two boxes to coordinate their movements. As a box is lifted, position sensing is provided by an accelerometer and obstacle avoidance is provided by an infrared sensor. A programmable microcontroller manages the control of the components.
