Topic: Need help with Quadruped robot (Read 227 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi all,

I just start to learn electronics, so I'm still very confused about it. I'm building a quadruped robot based on an instruction here http://www.instructables.com/id/Spider-Robot-With-Arduino-Ara%C3%B1a-Rob%C3%B3tica-Con-Ardui/  I followed this one but I bought an Arduino Leonardo board instead of Uno and used Adafruit 16-channel servo shield. For the power source, I used an adapter 5V-2A. I applied the code they posted but the servo motors did not run. I dont think my power got problem. Can anyone explain what wrong with my work please? Thank you very much. This is my first time, so...I hope it can work.

P/S: I tested the motors already and they were good.

Welcome to the forum.

Please read the first post in any forum entitled how to use this forum.
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,148850.0.html then look down to item #7 about how to post your code.
It will be formatted in a scrolling window that makes it easier to read.

Can you please post a copy of your circuit, in CAD or a picture of a hand drawn circuit in jpg, png?

Please do not attach zip files,  jpg, ino, txt, pdf, png are okay.

How did you test your "servos"?

Can you please tell us your electronics, programming, Arduino, hardware experience?

Thanks.. Tom... :)
Everything runs on smoke, let the smoke out, it stops running....


You say that you applied the code they posted.
Who is they?
If it were me, I would want to start using the Adafruit examples.
