Does Each Ez-B V4 Have A Unique Identifier Accessible From Ez-Builder?

I'm just wondering if, in a lab containing 25 or more EZ-Bs, each controller might have a unique ID in the firmware that can be accessed via EZ-Builder. I realize that assigned IPs will distinguish between the controllers for communication purposes. However from a system standpoint, unique IDs might help tighten cloud security when local EZ-Builder...

Southpark-Type Animation An Effective Substitute For Moving Mouth?

I'm wondering if some sort of mouth animation as seen in characters in, say, South Park, might provide an effective alternative to using servos to manufacture jaw movement. And more servos to manipulate physical mouth movement. So, I've just started looking around and am finding websites that claim that there are only 9 or 10 mouth (3D)...
question

Thoughts About Handwriting Recognition?

In my project prototype, I will have a JD head that provides interaction with a student who wants (needs?) to learn some remedial math. My design approach is that the bot interface will serve two purposes: 1. a friendly, engaging interface with the student 2. essentially a data collection device observing student understanding through a. spoken...

Required Servos For Alan Kit

Will, (So sorry if this info is on another thread - I did search.) Just went to your website to inquire about purchase of one and multiple Alans for my project prototyping and for presentation to investors in a couple of months. I suspect I can reuse my JD head EZ-B, two servos, and camera to partially fill in Alan's needs. However I'd like to know...

Robocop Is Showing Now On Max Cable

My apologies for so many posts in the last few minutes. But I must say I'm getting excited about the potential of using EZ-B technology to develop some really cool projects. Right now we are watching RoboCop on a MAX satellite channel. It used to be that I could just sit back and enjoy the good guys beating the bad jobs in this movie. However, now...

question

Robotheatre?

The store fronts I am looking at are all very close to a high school, a middle school and an elementary school. Earlier today, the thought occurred to me that it might be both educational and smart business to put on regularly scheduled adaptations of, say, some of Shakespeare's works, starring a few JD Robots. For example, how about age...
question

Max Number Possible Of Wireless Ez-Builder / Ez-B Connections

Suppose I have a room with multiple PCs, each running EZ-Builder each attempting to connect to its own EZ-B. What's the effective max number of PC/EZ-Builder/EZ-B connections. Does this boil down to the max number of frequencies available for the wireless connection, or to the number of IP addresses available, or neither? Also, is wireless...

Is It Too Soon In The Ez-Robot History To Talk About Retail Franchises?

DJ, what sort of support opportunities would be available from EZ-Robot for individuals interested in opening a retail outlet exclusively for EZ-Robot products? Ron
question

Ez-Face Recognition Questions With Multiple Cameras

@JustinRatliff In a previous thread you mentioned that EZ-Face would need to be retrained when a camera is replaced. If my development project goes as planned, I will have several humanoid heads interacting with multiple persons, not necessarily paired up the same way, from day-to-day. So, my plan is, in a few months, to investigate the algorithm...

Evangelist Team Feedback

Say, DJ, as a member of the evangelist team, I would like some (candid) feedback on how I can improve my postings in support of EZ-Robot. I have a thick skin, so if you have a chance to review my evangelistic postings, I'd like to know how I can improve to offer better support

Best Website Management To Support Robotics-Based Startup?

I hope this discussion question is appropriate for community consideration. I'm way impressed with the EZ-Robot website, especially with the availability of finestkind resources and support.
