Andrew Miller's 2-motor walker
The material in this appendix is directly derived from a set of tutorial web pages authored by Andrew Miller. Andrew has since moved on to other pursuits (that pesky "work thing," don'cha know...), so in the interests of education, I "prettied" up his treatment a bit (the original was so rich in font styles, that it was a bit distracting), cleaned up some terminology and spelling, and gave it a home here.
Thus endeth the preface...
"How Do I Make A Walker????"
The fact is it's impossible to teach someone all the empirical knowledge and skill base that goes into a BEAM walker. But in the following material I will attempt to describe the MicroCore and its implementation in a 2-motor / 4-leg walker. Take note, this is by no means all the info that is possible but it should get you started. I've tried to make it as straightforward as possible.
