This robot uses timing belt drive in part of its hip joint.
Many of the Robo 1 machines are using rather exspensive digital servos. they cost about $100.00 to $120.00 per servo. I've counted at least 14-20 servos in some of the robots.
After looking at the robots I began to wonder. Who is stamping out all of the support parts?
The solutions for the walking part of the robots appears to be becomming sort of standardized. But I have noticed at least a couple of variation in the hip and ankle configurations.
To really appreciate the function of these machines you really have to see them in person. I was very impressed in how smooth the joints work and how little gear reduction they appear to have when the power is not applied.
