Hexapod robot called SAMSA II is a next version of robot SAMSA platform which was based on Atmega128. This one has some nice improvements to do even more with this baby. Overall SAMSA II robot is equipped with three microcontrollers where one takes care of reading sensors, another controls LED dot matrix display and main Arduino mega is a brain.
Despite the fact that there is an arduino used, it is programmed with custom C++ code without usage of Arduino IDE what lead to more efficient code. It has some load actually because robot motion consists of 18 Dynamixel Ax-12 servo motors. As we mentioned additional features include 8×8 matrix LED display, IR remote control. Demo program gives several walking and 3D movement configurations.
