I posted a project a while back, (2014 so a wayyyyy while back) about a robot I was building that at the time I was calling J.A.R.V.I.S
Well, shortly after I posted about that, Amazon released the Echo, I experienced a layoff cutting into my budget and then I returned to college full time to finish my degree. Needless to say, J.A.R.V.I.S was shelved and I went dormant for an extended period. That said, much has changed and I'm finally getting back into AI and robot building. I've re-purposed the parts intended for J.A.R.V.I.S and am now midway through development on my new bot, Artemis.
Artemis is built on a Max '99 robotics platform from Zagros Robotics, two 12v motors on the wheels connecting to an H-bridge going to the EZB-V4 and a mannequin torso, with two servos in the neck for pan and tilt. Need to upgrade the battery as 6 rechargeable AA's is no longer sufficient for more than a few minutes. Have arms currently printing on my 3D printer (C3PO replicas that will take about four days to print). Originally had a small usb monitor mounted on the back that was going to connect to an on-board PC but, thanks to almost 5 years of technological advancements I'll be replacing that with an android tablet running EZ-Builder. Will also be adding a camera for object tracking and facial recognition as well as multiple ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoidance. Been planning for a long time but just finally started building this past weekend so there is much much more to come!
