This is a graphics simulation that models the mechanical structure and control system of a well known six legged robot named "Genghis" developed at MIT. The control system used for the robot is based on the subsumption architecture which was developed by Rodney A. Brooks of MIT in the mid 1980's. The simulation was developed using the VOGLE graphics library.
