Video at last!

I finally got round to tidying up the wiring on my humanoid robot and repairing the wiring on a potentiometer that got damaged when I removed it from my previous project. More importantly I spent some time on a video to show the robot in action. Check it out below!



Not much autonomy yet, except for the head when tracking an object. The next job is to continue work on the software. I need to write software to save and load a set-up file for the robot containing servo end points as not all of the servos can move to their full extents without hitting something. The next task after that is to write software to store and replay a series of moves. Not exactly autonomous but it should look cool!

And… relax!

Robot body relaxed

Not really time to relax but my latest robot sure looks like he’s taking it easy. Both arms are complete as are all of the potentiometer mounts. Testing has started and I have most of the software from my previous project working with the new unit. Now to tidy up all of the wires! I have to shorten some of the potentiometer wires as they were taken off of my previous robot and this one is slightly smaller. I also need to route all of the potentiometer and servo wires to hide them a bit. I should have waited until this was done to post a picture but I couldn’t resist showing everyone the robot with both its arms. A video will be on its way soon so watch this space!
