The CityBeest is a 20 legged walking robot, inspired by the works of Theo Jansen.
Instead of using Jansen's 11 magic numbers, a genetic algorithm and simulation was written in order to find new solutions that would produce viable gaits when used as linkage parameters.
This was used as input to a design in Fusion 360, which in turn was exported to STL and printed on a 3D printer of my own design. The model consists of 377 3D printed parts. The robot is controlled with an Arduino Uno via a custom shield for controlling motors and sensing it's surroundings.
