Hi, I just bought an old Omnibot 2000. She is not in good shape, one arm is broken. I want to keep her mostly stock, but add sensors, camera, and servo's on all the joints to make her have full mobility, also I want her neck to have a wider range of motion. I don't have the time and money to do some of the Mods I have seen on this site and others. I have been watching Greekpappa's Omnibot 3000 build and that is waaaay beyond what I would like to do. However, I really need a parts list or something, as in what are the best servo's to use in the neck and arms, what camera is best (I would really like to connect it directly to an onboard computer, not Bluetooth) I am looking at Intel's new Minnow board. I want to keep the wheels of the drive train, but don't know if I should change out to better than stock motors on the wheels, also should I use an H-bridge or a Sabertooth for an Omnibot, and lastly what battery is best for her, what voltage and amperage should I use and how should I distribute the power between the EZ-B, Drive Train and servos ( if I need more than the 5v the EZ-b puts out.)
I know this is a lot, but I am new to Robotics, I work in the I.T. field and can build and work on computers, but I an a noob when it comes to building a robot, I just thought this could be a good Father/Son project.
Thanks ahead of time for all of your help.
