This Iq My Personal Robot

StorySkip to comments

I designed IQ as a proof of concept robot.It is made of foam core 5mm thick board with .020 styrene plastic sheet overlays. He is 4.5 feet tall and can telescope its head another 8 inches using a camera tripod with motor drive. There is a windows 8.1 tablet installed on its chest. Power comes from a lithium battery pack for drive wheels and a 12 vdc sla battery for the electronics. The EZB 4 is connected in client mode. It is designed not to tip over with anti tipping brackets beneath the lower frame..The movement speed is moderate for stability. The arms are from a Robosapien that i received that did not work.I gutted the arms and installed 3 servos for each arm .It can rotate its arms ,elbows and open and close hands.

@rb550f.

You say it took you three months to cut and glue the panels for IQ... well, It shows. You have done a really great job with a clean build and ended up with a fantastic looking robot. I also really like the lighting you have going on there, especially the blue lighting strips. It really adds the extra "coolness" to the overall design. If IQ is a proof of concept, I really look forward to what you do next.

100 "Cool" points for you sir. :)

I got a pair just like that from Herbach & Rademan (link below) but I don't see them there now. But they have some similar ones.

@rb550f,

Any
specs you can provide on the Windows 8 tablet? I'm looking at either a fanless pc with a small hdmi monitor, or a tablet as an onboard computer. Would be interested in knowing what you use and if its robust enough for your purposes.

Thanks,

John
