Developments of legged robots are becoming more popular in the robotics world. Wheel excel on prepared surfaces such as rails and roads, but perform poorly when the terrain is soft and uneven. Thus, a legged mobile robot is most suitable especially for military application. The aim of this project is to design and develop an all-terrain robot for military purpose using legged motion. Studies from the previous similar projects had been carried out to gather information for the design and development of this project. Three conceptual designs were proposed. The best design with four legs is selected using the Pugh Method. MPLAB software is used to program the PIC 16F877A microcontroller. After interfacing the mechanical, electrical and programming elements, the full working mechanism is tested. Results show that the project target is achieved as the robot is able to move on the floor surface. But it can hardly move on grass and sand surface. Recommendations to overcome the problem are to redesign the robot based and it legs and restructures the programming for the robot movement.
