V-REP: Simulation of Ant-Like Hexapod Robotic Systems

The video shows an ant-like robot walking. The whole control of the robot (as seen in this video) requires less than 200 lines of code, everything included. First the robot stays in place and changes the posture of its body. Then the robot walks straight, then sideways and backwards while keeping a constant body posture. In the third part, the robot walks straight while performing the same body movements as at the beginning. Finally, the robot rotates on the spot. Also notice how the head keeps its orientation independently of the body's posture. The ant model is courtesy of Lyall Randell.

Run time - 1:10 minutes.
