    All you need to know about 17 DOF Humanoid- Robotics using Arduino based controllers

    17 DOF Humanoid Demo

    Before you start working on humanoid make some points for yourself
    • 1. At least one electronics person who can identify voltage drops, register loads, servo controller boards, wirings, GPIO schematics etc.
    • 2. Some mechanics of humanoid which may require research knowledge for different kinds of motion/locomotion.
    • 3. Keep some extra funding for your humanoid LiPo batteries & extra servos which jams while testing.

    If you want to jumpstart with humanoids the basic kit you can buy from below:
    https://robokits.co.in/robot-kits/humanoid-robot-kit/17dof-humanoid-robot-diy-kit-with-18-servo-controller

    This can be the cheapest but after few tests, I realized it's a huge fail because the batteries they provide didn't stand too long with a steady current to all the servos & even after few walk cycles servos start jamming which results in too much deflection from given tilt-angles.


    This is Arduino based 19-Servo Controller board whose detailed datasheet you can find from this link

    Coding is Embedded C
    GitHub: https://github.com/vsltech/17dofhumanoid
    I connected Raspberry Pi with Arduino via UART using USB interface for other operations.
    Controller can generate relevant .ino code for various loops & you can further write the code for stabilization, walk cycle etc.

    Some good reads for this project
