We wanted to create a robot that mimics animal behavior

What it does

It crawls on the ground like a spider and is used to scale difficult terrain

How we built it

"We 3D printed the body and attached 12 servos to the arms. The we made a custom servo shield for the ardino to interface and make wiring simpler. A bluetooth android app was developed to make it autonomous.

Challenges we ran into

Current limitations from the Arduino

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are really proud that we got the bot to walk across the floor

What we learned

We learnt that robotics requires repeated configurations of servos

What's next for SpyderBot

Continuing to improve the walking algorithm.
