Hello to All,
"Lilian" ( LIfe LIke ANdroid ) is my test robot (ver1) made from a trash can, a cardboard box, a mask, packing tape, foam rubber, foam board, a dress from Goodwill, stuff around the house and a hot glue gun. She has two mini servos with a 5 volt regulator running the eyes, a camera mounted under her nose, two neck servos, three servos and a gripper in each arm, two continuous servos in the base, a 5000 mah 7.2 volt Nimh battery, a power switch, and of course the GREAT EZB v4.
Her head tracks faces and color, arms have manual movement, and she can move forward, reverse, left and right by a movement panel and voice command.
She also has the ability to reply to a number of verbal questions or statements by the playback of mp3 files. I have many of the functions split up into three project folders.
Once I tune the manual operations, to get better quality of movement and function, I will reach out to the community as to where to educate myself to write scripts to allow automated operations. I have not found a Script 101 tutorial that helps teach the basics, and shows examples. ( I may not have looked in the right places yet ). I know there are many programmers in the community that may direct me where to go for information.
I will be upgrading Lilian with a heavier base and maybe a better drive system to eliminate the tipping condition I have when she runs on a carpet or bumpy floor, but for now she runs well enough.
I received my new Adventure Bot and will use it to proof some ideas for the future in house navigation. I may consider two EZBv4's in Lilian in the future. One to run the head and arms and one to run the wheels and future navigation since I have the EZBv4 in the Adventure Bot.
Thanks to all who have helped me with this project so far.
