Was kommt heraus wenn man ein Segway mit einer kinetischen Skulptur von Theo Jansen kreuzt?
Ein Cajun Crawler - geniales Teil!


Falls der erste Link nicht funktioniert:


Wers baut kann für mich gleich eins mitbauen!
Muß das unbedingt haben und damit durch die Hauptstadt düesen!

Gruss.....Der Doc

Wow - das ist ja mal ein stylisches Gefährt. Dafür, dass es eine "simple" Mechanik ist (also ohne irgendeine Form von elektronischer Regelung), bewegt sich das Teil ganz schön ruhig und geschmeidig.

Moar, geil

Will haben !

wer besorgt die pläne?

DIY CNC machinen sollten hier genug sein im forum ...
ergo - bauen ...
und das ganze bissi größer (dann wirds noch schneller) :hehe:

voll geil die teile

31.07.2011, 22:17
geiles teil^^ wer hat nur immer so ideen :D

Da wär mir ein ein Segway doch lieber, da geht nichts über Räder

ihr meint so:

Das ist dann wohl die Männerversion.
3Monate Planung
6Monate Bauzeit
"We did it cause we could"

Sehe ich das richtig und das Teil kann sich entweder drehen oder vorwärts bzw. rückwärts laufen?

Wenn ja wäre das ein klarer knockout :hehe: das machen auch nur Amis, lol

The Cajun Crawler, Interviews & Video

The Cajun Crawler is a remarkable application of what was previously simply an esthetic design, Theo Jansen's fascinating articulated walking leg. What makes it even more remarkable is that this first-known practical application for the celebrated device was designed and built by UL Engineering students. ultoday.com shows the demonstration video and speaks with Engineering's Dr. Terrence Chambers, and Don Tamosaitis, the student who led the design & construction team.

Tell us about the Cajun Crawler.

Dr. Terrence Chambers, Associate Dean of the College of Engineering:

Actually, Don was the mastermind behind this, he built it with his own money.

The Crawler was a senior project that began as a class project for MCHE 363, the kinematics class I was teaching.

We wanted to do something interesting using the information they had learned in the junior class. This project was inspired by the artist Theo Jansen, who is both an artist and an engineer, who makes kinetic sculpture.

That was the initial assignment for their junior project, and then some of them wanted to continue it for their senior design project. Dr. Ted Kozman was the adviser for that project.

Don Tamosaitis:

The idea was inspired by Jansen's leg mechanism. We had to do a kinematics project with Dr. Chambers the semester before, and I made a walking device out of chicken bones. When I started working on my senior project, I wanted do something that carried weight. It just kinda grew from there.

The crawler travels about 2-3 miles/hour. There were five of us working on it, there was a lot of 3D modeling of all the parts in SolidWorks, a CAD package. We tested our assembly in SolidWorks also. It's a really useful software tool, because you can make the parts and assemble them, and then check for interference, do some finite element analysis to see if it can take the stress.

The motors looked pretty small.

Yeah, they are. There are two motors on there, one for each side left & right, so it steers like a tank. They're actually 18V hand-drill motors. Our main focus at that point was getting the legs to work smoothly, and to be able to carry the biggest guy on our team, about 325 pounds. And he can ride it.

So we chose those motors because in the time allotted, you try to focus on the important things, and those motors already had batteries and switches that match them.

In the video, it seems a little unstable.

There's a little learning curve with it, just like a skateboard or a bicycle. It's really stable after you learn to use it. Guys in the video fall over because they were stopping too fast. Once you learn to stop by easing off the speed, you won't fall over.

What did it cost to build?

Between donated materials and what we bought, the materials were probably $1100-1200 bucks.

Taken from the YouTube page for the Cajun Walker:

The following video is a documentary of sorts. The video shows the Cajun Crawler. It was a project that was completed for the Fall 08 semester at the University of Louisiana. The scooter was inspired by Theo Jansen's leg mechanism. Throughout our research, we found no application where Jansen's leg mechanism was used as a weight-bearing application or vehicle. The legs are made of standard 5052 Aluminum. The joints all contain deep-groove ball bearings.

Thank you

I was apart of this group that made the Cajun Crawler. I would like to thank you for writing a story about it. Much work was put into this project, and I believe it can show how good the engineers at UL really are.

Thanks again,

Chris Menard

The Walking Beast

The Walking Beast is an eight-legged, 11-foot-high, 6-ton monstrosity of steel, gears and arachnophobia powered by a Chevy V8 engine.
This Burning Man veteran is the brainchild of Martin Montesano, who completed his 23-foot-long octoped over three years,
running a total expense of $50,000. This Beast is really only suitable for a quick trip to the 7-Eleven—although it fits an
overweight family of eight, it gets a paltry 0.16 mpg, and the top speed may only slightly blow your hair back at just under 5 mph.
