I would like some moving mouth or perhaps lights that flash when a sound occurs, any Ideas?

I quit showing robots that looks sort of like a human face, I found out many people do not like that and think it is creepy.

I will make a video today I hope...

I do like the flashing lights with audio idea too. The moving mouth is still a good idea to still(with that special servo control right?) Im sorta looking at doing something like it with Hemi maybe.

#4   — Edited

I like the moving mouth as it gives more interest and is not that difficult.  I asked about having the lights flash with the voice and Will is using a voice circuit like scary terry.  and so is Dave on his B9 Robot.  I already have a scarry terry board but it is just so much more wires just to make the lights flash.  the mouth does not have to open this one is just 4 micro servos and some surgical tubing.  you just use a Disney mouth position chart to make the lips move correctly  User-inserted image

@EzAng

Thats cool. I myself have been a little stalled too. Had to replace the Elbow servo in HEMI's left arm , cause I burned it out when it got stuck  against the robots body while programming different Auto Positions. Even had to replace the SSC32, which also as toast from that servo. Expensive weekend it was. Im still having some control issues with my Sabertooth that I dont like, so I may look at my Roboclaw again just to prove out an issue.

A break from Mr. Metal.

Here is my example of the ultrasonic radar scan, distance and collision:

A litter boring, but it is just a sensor, lol

these are just tests

Had it set for 35 in.   45 in. works better  - in the minimum distance before turning

EzAng

#54  

@EzAng  I Like it alot,  yes your distance is to far limits the room it can move maybe one foot would be better.  I have several ultrasonic sensors. I may try using one on COG.   Is it fixed or does a servo keeps rotating the sensor left and right?

PRO
USA
#55  

Hi nallycat, I set it up that servo keeps move right to left scanning.

I will do a few more tests on the pinging  - "minimum distance before turning" situation.

I will test nearer and then farther.

Thanks

EzAng

PRO
USA
#56   — Edited

My ultrasonic may not be up to the task for these tests

Here are the things I observed:

need correct lighting minimum distance before turning - noticed it works best starting pinging at 35 in. tried  smaller ranger 10, 12, 20, in. does not work  speed of the wheels - the slower the better certain colors it can't recognize, example stainless steel, black...others

make sure you use the same D - example D2, or whatever, for the trigger port and the echo port in settings in a 3 wire ultrasonic

Will keep testing later

Thanks EzAng

#57  

@EzAng  question why should the color matter it is using sound waves, I can see the stainless steel being a problem as it is very reflective.  I will have to investigate further, and is it worth using? the camera may be enough to detect objects in the robots path.

PRO

#58   — Edited

I only can report what I found.

for whatever reason, it crashed into certain colors, not avoided them - will test again when I get a chance.

The ultrasonic is not the best - :-)  Yes it can be used, not trusted

Ezang that is lookin good.you can adjust two thing that wil make the line tracking better. first is the speed.the lower the speed the more accurate the bot will follow the line. second is the angle off the camera.amaging that you are on a bicicle lookin in front off, your front wheel.the chance you will hit somethin is very big,cause you cant see in the distants. just like your camera angle,its straight in front .by lift the camera a very little can be a huge diff. its all about how fast your ezb can calculate the full procces.

Very cool EzAng. I myself am at idle atm. Recently after I tried to demo HEMI for someone, the Sabertooth controller (R/C version)  decided to catch fire on me. It really did go up in flames. So I orded a new one, only to have that one short out on me  a few minutes after I got it installed and it was working great for me too. Ive since sent it back to Dimension Engineering, only to find out from them that there may be a little issue with the product at their end. Im now awaiting a replacement unit. Meanwhile still awaiting for my 3d printer to be replaced or repaired (thats another story).

You do know Normad . you will not be able to stop with just the head.  you have been warned.  I built the head then I thought I should build the body plates to hold the head and neck. then this and that and before I knew it Bruce-e was born.  it doesn't stop there, lots of upgrade parts.  new neck new elbows aerious designed. new eyes new quiet jaw. Bob Houston's waste.  my new finger design with one tendon per finger. on and on.  but it's fun. by the way Normad very nice looking parts.

Hi all,

One of my best robots is my Orion SkyQuest XX14g GoTo Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope https://www.telescope.com/Orion/Orion-SkyQuest-XX14g-GoTo-Truss-Tube-Dobsonian-Telescope/rc/2160/p/101888.uts?keyword=skyquest%2014

An enormous yet conveniently portable 14" aperture truss-tube Dobsonian telescope equipped with fully motorized GoTo object location and automatic tracking of over 42,000 celestial objects Colossal 14" aperture reflector optics collect tons of light for wonderfully detailed views of deep space objects such as galaxies, star clusters, and cloudy nebulas,

in addition to bright and detailed views of closer cosmic quarry including the Moon and planets

Orion-designed collapsible GoTo Dobsonian base AND rigid 8-pole truss reflector optical tube both break down into easily manageable components for transport in virtually any car

Closed-loop electronics forgive accidental bumps, nudges, and even manual repositioning without losing alignment of the GoTo system.

Heavy-duty clutches allow independent adjustment of motion to desired level of resistance in both axes.

The XX14g now comes Wi-Fi enabled, which means it can be controlled wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet instead of with the SynScan hand controller.

I can try to work it with ARC one day

EzAng

#168  

@EzAng    We have a lot In common.  I have been involved in astronomy since I was about 16 years old.  I built my first telescope from scratch a 12 inch Newtonian reflector. I ground the primary mirror on a barrel with Pyrex mirror blanks it took most of the summer of 1965.  I silvered the mirror myself. the telescope when finished was around 6 feet tall and weighed 250 lbs.  I am a member of the Ottawa astronomical society,  and partnered with my best friend in a company called Sky Shed. and we built all wood buildings in which the roof slid off to permanently house very large telescopes.  the designer of Sky Shed was the base player for the Canadian band glass tiger.  Astronomy is great during pandemics as it has very good social distancing. I have access to very large telescopes in Arizona through the society.  full internet control.    my problem as always is time.

hefty price tag  :-)  $2195.00 on their site https://syndaver.com/product/axi-desktop-3d-printer/

What was the features of the printer that made you decide to choose this printer?

EzAng

#226  

So many things I liked... the overall printing size, the multiple materials it can handle, the 25 point Auto bed leveling calibration, the fact that it is made here in the USA and not in China (mfg in Colorado in fact) and even the tech support is in in the USA. Right now though, you have to use their "SympleSlicer" online Cura Software and transfer the gcode to a mem stick as shown on the top there. It does have a USB port in the back, for then the real Cura releases its next upgrade with the SynDaver settings and can use a USB Cable ( id prefer).  And 3DPrintlife has been great with support and the handling of the return of the XYZ Super printer I had. Heck, the Syndaver was even packed way better than the xyz printer.

Hi Nomad,

I might have to change the guitar strings for something else, they may it easy to thread though the hand

I 3d printed a platform for the hand and super glued it on

platform.stl

using ARC and an IoTiny to operate it

Here is where I am at with the hand. Here are 2 pictures

Nomad, I printed the IoTiny holders, I needed to drill in each corner a hole for a screw to match the IoTiny's holes.

The original IoTiny holder file had the holes in the wrong place

you cant use an LED in rgb ,but you can use an led with the black/white signal pin on the ezbv4 . and use script . the higher the sleep the longer it stays on ad visa versa .

For your DC motor hobby cars: from https://dronebotworkshop.com/tb6612fng-h-bridge/

good info - https://dronebotworkshop.com/dc-motor-drivers/

Just thought I would pass along a replacement for the L298N H bridge

It is the TB6612FNG H-Bridge from Sparkfun

User-inserted image

User-inserted image

If you have a motor that requires over 13.5 volts then that eliminates the TB6612FNG. However, if your motor is a low-voltage (i.e. 3-volt) device then the L298N is out of the picture.

Although the L298N can handle almost twice the continuous current that the TB6612FNG does, it is about even when it comes to peak current, in fact the TB6612FNG has a slight edge.

But after that the TB6612FNG is the clear winner.

It is much smaller, in fact, most TB6612FNG modules are less than a quarter of the size of L298N modules. No heatsink, making it even smaller. However, it is a good idea to allow some airflow around the device. The efficiency is where the TB6612FNG really shines. There really is no contest here, something to strongly consider when building a battery-powered device. Virtually all of your motor supply voltage will get to the motor when you use the TB6612FNG. The L298N will drop 1.4-volts, as it uses BJTs. The TB6612FNG has a low-current standby mode that the L298N does not have.
