i build this hexapod: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/29821 .But now i have some problem implementig an hexapod gait, the wave works fine but when i try the hexapod one it fall on the lower right leg (if you see the hexapod with the arduino near you).
i post a similar topic in the italian forum : http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,87328.0.html where you can read the code.
Can someone point me some hexapod gait resources or sample code?
Thank you for the help and sorry for my bad english.


Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)


I would suspect a forward gate would be something like this (sudo code):

give legs lay out of:
3  6
2  5
1  4

raise legs 1, 3, 5
move legs 1, 3, 5 "forward" & legs 2, 4, 6 "backwards"
lower legs 1, 3, 5
raise legs 2, 4, 6
move legs 1, 3, 5 "backwards" & legs 2, 4, 6 "forward"
lower legs 2, 4, 6


Maybe you should ask over at the SoR forum


IIRC there is a program to do this, I think you tell it the gate you want and it generates code or some such. The SoR guys would know.

Thank you JansonK i resolved the problem, i was moving the legs 1, 3, 5 "forward" and legs 2, 4, 6 "backwards" in two separate step, now i put together the two action and it walks without any problem.
Thank you all for the help
