Wall-e Wall-e From Poland - Tribute To My Newborn Child - Marcel :-)

StorySkip to comments

Hello Everyone !

First of all I would like to thank all of You for great inspiration to building robot, specially DJ Sures and Louis T . Many of Yours ideas were copied in my project guys.
It takes almost 3 months to build Wall-e with 12 servos, Mp3 trigger, amplifier, camera, ultrasonic distance sensor, laser diode and some other stuff...

Now it's time to programm something ;-)
(and by the way, sorry for my English I'm not a native speaker ;-)

The biggest challange in construction:
- head - many small parts in small head: 4 servos (2 servos for movement 2 parts of head independently, and 2 for eyebrow movement), camera, laser diode, blue right eye
- and of course the neck for vertical movement - you will see, why it was hard to do...


After upgrade:
- VU meter for mouth emotion
- Bar led for voltage mettering in place of wall-e solar battery
- Voltage metter on the back with current voltage
- tilt servos to move body up/down during forward/backward movement

Laser diode in phone camera looks amazing, don't you think ;-)

And the heart is beating...

Plans for the future:
- 2 servos for wheels tilt (like Louis T) (It's done - now I have 14 servos in my Wall-e ;-)
- 2 servos in the arms for fingers movement (I have to forget about it because there are no so small servos :-( )

Walle inside:



And problem with neck

fisha,
Excellent additions to your robot. Nice detail.
Is the voltage readout part of a voltage regulator, or is it a separate unit?

Thank you very much :) For bar voltage metering I have separate unit connected stright to battery, because only in this way I can really check the power level (voltage regulator has to much loss). I've also do the voltage check on ez-board ADC port to signal low level via the wall-e like "Robot in danger - I don't have power" speaking ;-)

@fisha Very impressive workmanship on your Wall-E! I like the work you did on the arms.
Which servo did you use for horizontal arm movement? How did you attach it to the grey plastic joint?

I bought a Wall-E 7 months ago and ordered a Development Kit. While I patiently wait for that to arrive I've been reviewing all Wall-E projects on this community forum and I've started taking my Wall-E apart.
I've undone the two screws in the arms but can't pull the 2 halves fully apart. The plastic at the end near the hands is glued together.
I'm scared of using too much force in case I break it.
Is this normal or does it have to be cut to come apart?

woa woa woa! hold up

@fisha how did you do the voltage meter light up on the front panel!?!?!? that's amazing!
