CHAMBA, Jonnathan et al. Motion simulation of a hexapod robot in virtual reality environments. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.1, pp.173-184. ISSN 1390-6542.

The aim of this work is the development of an animation of a hexapod robot in virtual reality environments through the use of Unity software. The movement of the robot is 18 degrees of freedom, which are based on servo motors that are controlled by the use of a microcontroller; It also shows the processes necessary to transfer the 3D design of the hexapod robot made in the use of CAD (Computer Aided Design) software to a virtual reality environment without losing the physical characteristics of the original design. Finally, the results obtained from the simulation of movement and responses of the hexapod robot to disturbances such as roughness of the floor, uneven ground and gravity among others are presented; allowing a correct evaluation to possible designs of robots before being elaborated.

Keywords : animation; hexapod; virtual; Computer aided design.
