MMU University, Faculty of Engineering & Technology, 75450 Melaka, Malaysia
Insect robots are a special type of robots that designed to imitate the behavior of insects. Insect robots have many advantages such as the ability to move over uneven terrain, less power consumption and smaller in size. This paper shows the progress made during the development of a six-legged robot system inspired by ants and crickets. The resulted robot is able to mimic insects in terms of gait pattern and physical size. The robot is controlled wirelessly by using a Bluetooth xBee module and remote devices including a mobile phone with android application, a personal computer with windows software, and a Bluetooth wireless controller made the Arduino development platform.
