Robot Head

DJ Sures

Canada

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.

  Description:
  Animatronic companies are being outdated by CGI in Hollywood.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)

Damn, Everytime I see one of DJ's robot creations ,it gets me stoked and motivated to continue updating my own creations. How long have I had the EZB/Synthiam system now? Can't even remember how many years now and it is the only hobby equipment that I have never got tired of working with. Not every day of course,I do have a life but ya videos like this just get me stoked!
