Making robots walk with Python

Speaker(s) Radomir Dopieralski

Making a robot walk is not easy, especially when all it has for brains is a small microcontroller which you have to program in C. During this talk you will see different ways in which such a robot can be controlled in Python, either by using remote control, with the Python program running on a stationary computer, by putting a small computer, such as a Raspberry Pi on it, or by programming it with Micropython, a version of the Python language designed for microcontrollers. I will also explain the basic problems with walking robots and how Python can be used to overcome them. Finally, I will show some of the robots I have built.
