(sorry if you get it twice. I guess it did not reach the list last time i
sent due to dns err.)


Well, I'd like to inform you all, that I have used rtems to control a 
Six Legged Walking robot which is being built in our lab.

Each leg has 3 dof. 
The robot stands 6 feet tall, and weighs about 300Kg.
12 out of 18 motors are 1 hp motors..

rtems resides in a 486 industrial motherboard, which remote-boots, and
allows high level commands to flow in from the network
(the code is based on netdemo)

Just finished the first basic code which runs all 18 axis simultaneously.
