mePed is an awesome little open source quadruped robot which allows anyone to build their very own walking robot with no prior knowledge in robotics at a price point that almost anyone can afford.
The mePed is targeted towards beginners as well as more advanced makers. Out of the box, the mePed is pre-programmed with a simple set of commands that allow you to make the robot move around the room, wave, and dance. With a little bit of extra programming, you can make the mePed navigate mazes, avoid obstacles, or anything else you can imagine. Everything about the mePed is open source so you can hack it, remix it, and reprogram it to make it unique and your own!
The mePed v2.0 kit includes everything needed to assemble and start having fun with your very own mePed Quadruped Robot! From the high quality MDF wood pieces and fasteners that make up the body of the mePed to the custom printed circuit board, pre-programmed Arduino Nano Compatible controller, Ultrasonic Range Sensor, and IR Remote Control. You'll even get the hex and end wrenches needed to tighten the nuts and bolts. Just add 4AA batteries and you'll be up and running!
In addition to running 8 servos and controlling the mePed with an IR Remote, we have also added BlueTooth, WiFi, and I2C ports to the circuit board for more communication options. All unused pins from the Arduino Compatible controller have also been broken out in a pin header for adding more sensors and other components. The WiFi and Bluetooth modules are not included with the kit.
The mePed robot is completely open source, from the hardware files needed to build the structure to the electronics and software. The source files can be found on our website: www.meped.io.
