The origin of robotics can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, who created movable statues. Around 270 BC, Ctesibus (a Greek engineer) made organs and water clocks with movable figures. The word robot was first used in 1921 play titiled R.U.R. Tossum's Universal Robots by Czechoslovakian writer Karek Capek. The word robot is a Czech word for workers. The play described mechanical servants, the "robots'. When therobots were endowed with emotion, they turned on their masters and destroyed them. Walking robots are essential especially when mobile robots can't reach a certain place. Agood example would be climbing stairs or go on rough terrain. Each leg ofthe walking robot can analyze the balancing ofthe robot, thus de-counters it so that the robot would stay in position and would not fall. Volcanoes and well as for other rough terrain area uses legged robot to pursue. With the help ofsensors to locate its position, walking robots can easily conquer an area. This report contains a project on design and implementation ofa six legged walking robot. The robot is power using DC source and servo motors. With a chip, PIC16F84 as its brain, the robot is capable ofmanoeuvring itself and avoid any obstacles along its way. Analysis and research on the material to be used, electrical components as well as the constructions is also in this report. All coding for the microcontroller were done in Clanguage and compiled using the PIC CCompiler. 111
