Project Hexapod: Introduction

In 2018 I was building lots of Arduino projects. One of which was a robot car which sense walls using ultrasound to sense when it was about to drive into a wall. In the video below I connect via bluetooth, then enter some commands into the Arduino serial console

To build on this I decided to make a hexapod – a walking spider.

The parts are still available here, although there isn’t a codebase to use the robot – you need to make that yourself. And that’s what this new project is about.
