Insect inspired robot with multiple servos

I am building a 6 legged robot with each leg having 3 servos.

Each servo can draw up to 2A if stalled. Power will be supplied by several 18650 batteries. I need a power converter that can supply 6v for the servos, with current sensing, and 5v for the Raspberry Pi, both from the same battery pack, and without the servo power draw causing any glitches in the supply to the Raspberry Pi.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for the submission.

    A robot is a really cool idea which we look forward to.

    It would be great if you can provide detailed schematics and how many boards you need. We are waiting for your response as the deadline is approaching fast.

    Best Regards,

    Arun Ashok
