Build Your Own 'Doggo': Low-Cost Robot Jumps, Flips, and Trots
The Stanford Student Robotics club’s "Extreme Mobility" team at Stanford University has developed a four-legged robot that performs acrobatic tricks, traverses challenging terrain, and is fully reproducible. Anyone who wants their own version of the "Doggo" robot can find comprehensive plans, code, and a supply list freely available online here. The team estimates the cost of Doggo at less than $3,000. The highly agile robot is designed to provide an accessible platform for legged robot research; weighing in at a little less than 5kg, Doggo is easy and safe to develop on.
