|F.R.E.D. stands for Funky Robotic Electronic Device. The brain is a stock standard Handyboard driving 2 of Scott
Edwards MiniSSCs. Each of the 6 legs has 2 DOF, total of 12
servo motors to run the legs.
He was built as a personal project which I was then able to incorporate into a university project. Most of the body is made from perspex giving a lightweight and funky (hence the name) looking design.
Time to Build: about 4 weeks with revisions to handle the extra weight and balance problems.
Cost: Far too much, i think about $800 so far. And that's without a camera.
