This can all be done through scripts or through external applications. EZ-AI is an external application that can do all of these things. It communicates with ARC. It is a much more complicated process.

You could also use the camera component in ARC, The voice recognition piece in ARC and the pandorabot component in ARC. This is the first thing I would try. If it doesn't meet your needs, you can look to external applications that communicate with ARC.

The script component in ARC is very powerful. You would be able to tie actions to what happens inside of these components, but I would first start with understanding these components. Each of these components has a ? button on it. Use this button for instructions for that control. It will help you understand the control and how to use it.


hi D Cochran...

the ARC can combine with other robot part, bioloid? or only for ez-robot part? how to make the robot tall 60cm, with the ezrobot? can interactive talk, walk, recognition face and voice. i really need more info. thanks


I am doing this with a 3 foot tall upper body on an Inmoov robot. Size doesn't matter as long as you have the power to drive the motors you are using. If you were going to drive 24V wheelchair motors, you would drive a H-Bridge of some sort from the EZ-B with the power to the motors coming from the H-Bridge for example.

The EZ-B can be used with custom robot builds. ARC drives the EZ-B.

Look at this thread to see a custom robot build with ARC and multiple EZ-B's

Take a look at this thread to see some sample scripts that drive other robots.

The EZ-B and ARC aren't just for the revolution robots. It is the most powerful robot controller on the planet with the easiest to use interface for programming.


Master D, thanks for concern to help me....

before i know ez-robot i hv an idea to buy bioloid premium, do you think can combine with the head from ez-robot, so can interactive respond vocally to motion, glyphs, faces. or can not be combine, only just one product from ez-robot with Jd n need to add more part to build like alan robot? please guide more,



The head won't be able to be attached directly. You will have to do some modification to it.

EZ-Robot works with most of the arduino sensors. Digital and analog sensors you will be fine with. Serial should also be fine. I2c is a more complicated interface.

You simply build and fabricate what you want to build. Parts may need to be modified but that makes it your own.


hi Master D...

im sorry, its new world for me... about robot things. can you be more specific ... what mean by I2c? yes i think can be use with arduino sensors. so, did the head with complete cam for recognize face and voice can be separate part? as part i need to combine with the bioloid gp premium? or can not?

if i buy JD humanoid, how to make it tall 60cm? need to buy 2 set or like what? how you build alan robot? but not kind of face as human, cz too scary for me...

please guide. thanks


hello Master D...

i would like to buy EZ-AI 2 component cost $58.95? where the store to click payment? is it same store with ez-robot? now, i have found the program i've looking for. so for make real like ur teddy for ur grand daughter, i think its good to speak about weather and can sing as well.... i can modify later... please guide again, thanks


There are many ways to make parts. 3D printing is one way which is the most common for home robot builders. Some use PVC scraps and shape them with heat. Some use cardboard. Some use metal and cut and shape it. Some use fiberglass. I have seen some on here use wood. There are many ways to build structure.

I have a website that has a page that I have gathered some general information about topics that relate to robotics.

Feel free to look there for information. I am sure that these links will take you to websites that have more information in it.

To answer you question, if you buy the JD head and nothing else, you will be missing the EZB robot controller. This is the brain of the robot so that should definately be purchased. You will also need a battery and a battery adaptor to fit the base that the EZB robot controller sits in.

You will need to download the ARC software to a windows based computer that is running windows 7 or greater.

After that, you plug everything into the EZB correctly (see EZ-Robot LEARN section of this website).

You connect your EZB to your network (again instructions are in the LEARN section of the website) over wifi.

you connect ARC to your EZB. Once this connection is made, you can program ARC to do whatever you want your robot to do.

The JD head has a camera, 18 lights for the eyes and 2 servos in the neck for pan and tilt. How you attach this to your robot body could be as easy as using hot glue. It could be as complicated as fabricating some new attachment. It really becomes up to you at this point.

Speech recognition, object recognition, and everything else you have asked about is available in ARC. I would recommend that you download ARC (free download) and install it. You dont need a robot to be able to see what all the software can do. I had the software installed for 3 or 4 months prior to ever having a EZ-B which allowed me to learn it pretty well. I would recommend that you start with this to see what is available in ARC. Once you see what is possible you will be able to know if it is right for what you want to do.

There is a guy on who builds amazing parts from scraps on here named @EricEZ. He might be able to help as he speeds the same language ad you.

The parts you will need depend on what you want to build. All of the parts you listed were from multiple robot builds. You should either spend some time designing a robot to identify all of the parts you will need, or pickup the developer kit, battery and charger and see what you can build out of it. Don't start with a huge project. Start with something small and build from there.
