Hello everyone !
This is a continuation of my post I misplaced!
This post will present the realization of my robot dog of my dreams for years.
It can detect obstacles, search light, feel the caress on the back, focus on movements and faces, play ball and lots of other nice thing with the generator of personality (limited by my imagination) through the amazing EZB
I use 12 servos for the legs (4 futaba S3010 and 8 Hextronik HX5010) and 5 different small servos for movement of the head, mouth and finally the tail.
The head is made from a Logitech speaker and hides the camera , a sharp GP2D120 ,2 light sensor , and 2 white LED who will blink randomly like "real" eyes controlled by small arduino nano to save port on EZB.
The ears are made with an inner tube tire.
The body will host the EZB, Pololu Maestro 18, in the future MP3 trigger from Sparkfun with some dog sound.The battery is a 3S4500 Lipo.The servo power regulation is done by this regulator
Here a little video (gait is better now ,more fluid)
I hope my English is understandable
