She is not dressed but has places to go!
I just wanted to share a progress photos. Doombot made me think she needed a more proper look, so I built a torso. His build will need a girlfriend some day.. My wife said she will get her a proper dress soon.. LOL
The pc board is a gadget I built to lower the voltage to my mini servos in the eyes, for longer life. I just used a EZ voltage regulator to feed the plugs from a port, and plugged the servos into a connector. From each connector I have a pin which allows a jumper to an output on the EZB. Only less than 1 amp draw allowed, even though there are 4 connectors.
My question is when I use the camera, the grids loose size while running and if I shut down and restart I have to reset them again from scratch. Also any recommendations on how to setup the camera for best face tracking? My bot looses track easily. Do I need a very bright lit area for best results, because room lighting will change while moving through the house, I will need to consider this.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
I don't recall anyone ever mentioning it. I keep meaning to start a thread as a bug report but have had higher priorities.
If DJ doesn't respond in this thread I'll start one tagged as a bug report on the issue.
This was a test bed to see what I really need to do to get a robot to be stable and move through the house. I found I need to make a wide base to eliminate the unstable movements due to the changing terrain, and will need larger wheels or a different locomotion system.
I am also looking forward to DJ's indoor navigation system. Meanwhile I am learning and getting great help from all.
Jealous yours is moving around the house. Mine just sits on the couch all day watching TV. :S
