ABSTRACT: This paper describes the design, fabrication and analysis of Bipedal walking robot. The main objective of the project is to study about the theories and the practical challenges involved in making it. The Bipedal walking robot is designed with minimal number of actuators (RC Servomotor) and it is controlled by low cost 8051 micro controller. The robot uses simple U-shaped servomotor brackets for joint formation and walks by balancing the Centre of Mass.

KEYWORDS: Centre of Mass (C.O.M), Degrees of Freedom (D.O.F), RC servomotor
