LCD Servo Robot Head

at 5:59 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks

 

Chris Carpenter is building a cool robot head, it looks up at you when you need to enter commands since the commands are displayed on the LCD screen which is mounted on the front of the head. The servo movements all look nice and smooth, there is also a servo under the large board which is controlling the right and left movement of the head. Some of the electronics include a PicAxe microcontroller, motor driver, servo driver, radio control receiver and 8 EPROMs.

Chris has added a new tilt mechanism to his robots which allows it to turn 360 degrees. It is amazing how Chris constantly finds ways to improve his robot. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if Chris were to program Walter to play poker online and display the results on his LCD screen.

    Really coool but i think something to be done would be figuring out how to improove the movements. It looks like it’s a problem wit the servos.
    And those must be really strong to cary all that weight.

    Oh and I have a question, can I post something on your site. I recently built a stirling motor, very fiddly but it works. I want to make power with it.

    […] We love us a good robot, the more clearly home-built the better, and it’s hard to get more DIY than a bot-to-be called Walter from Chris the Carpenter at Let’s Make Robots. Right now Walter exists in halves: a torso comprised of a custom chassis powered by some DeWalt drill motors, and a head with a small LCD display turned on three axis by a collection of servos. As of now everything is controlled by a remote, but the ultimate plan is for Walter to be able to locate a person, face them, and display a list of functions. We’re not sure what Walter’s purpose in life is to be in the future, but based on the second video below we’re reasonably sure it won’t be serving as a shuttle for reluctant wives.
