Solenodon: Unstable Hexapod Walking

The Solenodon research robot is a six legged mechanical walking platform designed at Ryerson Polytechnic University’s School of Computer Science. It was our goal to develop a platform that would facilitate the examination of issues involving stability in walking robots. The vehicle is available in several configurations ranging from fully teleoperated to low level autonomous operation.
