Dan from @DanMakesThings is a complete beginner when it comes to #robotics, but he managed to build this super smart bipedal friend, which includes custom PCBs.

Motion sensors let the robot detect someone’s presence and spring into action. This feature also saves energy, as the #robot goes into power-saving mode when nobody is around. It possesses face detection and speech recognition skills too, allowing for smarter interactions with humans.


Vernon Update: We designed/made a shim for the Ozito batteries in the vacuum cleaner... this lets us borrow some of the 18V power and use it to drive our motors and #ESP32 or @Raspberry_Pi Pico (we're planning to try both).

We've also finished designing/printing all the main hardware parts to get it rolling, such as the drive gears, hose adapters clean up the front end, and an integrated adapter inside the hose part that connects it all to the chassis.

Our resident electronics guru also got the motors hooked up and wheels turning, so now it's just a matter of getting the code done (doesn't he just ask AI to do that these days? easy peasy) and Vernon will be cruising around the space sucking up everyones belongings.

If you want to compete in next year's Pi Wars, it's time to start thinking about the kind of #robot you're going to build!

The event is open to anyone on planet Earth and will take place across the weekend of 20-21 April 2024 in Cambridge, UK.

#RaspberryPi #Robotics


Wanna build a #robot out of a milk carton?

Get yourself to CoderDojo Baarle THIS Sunday 1.00pm – 5.00pm CEST.

Robotics at Home with #RaspberryPi Pico
is a FREE online community event hosted by Embedded System Professional #Discord Community.

Sign up to learn how to design, build, and program a mobile #robot platform:

Imagine a #robot that could traverse the unforgiving sands of the desert in the darkness of night, covering many miles at a time and stopping at given waypoints to surveil.

This sophisticated #RaspberryPi 4 robot can do just that.

Super simple and inexpensive #robot controlled from @adafruit io over MQTT using a @Raspberry_Pi Pico W, two continuous rotation servos, a speaker, and powered by a mobile phone battery. Coded in Circuit Python. Using this in my Spring #BCPhysComp course. Will post video lessons, soon. Let’s roll!

One from the blog archives, the MTV robot at #PiWars. The MTV robot is an #opensource design I did around a cheap tracked #robot chassis and was written up in @Raspberry_Pi 's Hackspace Magazine.
