Robot Head

DJ Sures


With an animatronic robot head, DJ created a new feature for ARC. This robot was used as a platform for the Relative servo Tracking Camera Control option.

  Animatronic companies are being outdated by CGI in Hollywood. Do not fear! There are plenty of uses for their technology in robotics. I came across this robot head, made by Robots Squared.
  The head has servos to control the eyes (vertical and horizontal) and eyelids. I connected these to the EZ-B and whipped up a little project. Of course, the project source can be found under
  File->Examples in ARC. I used this as a platform to implement a new feature for camera tracking. The new Relative servo Tracking option allows a stationary camera to control the position
  of servos based on the objects location. In the videos below, you will see it in action.

Parts Used: 1 x EZ-Robot Complete Kit 1 x Robotics Squared Robot Head 1 x Wii Remote (optional)

Not every day of course,I do have a life but ya videos like this just get me stoked!
