So while it's not the most important part of the project it's always fun to do some designs. But it's also really easy to just end up with a box with wheels. It's easy to build and everything fits great together. But... it is a bit boring, i will see if i can come up with something better than this and of course suggestions are welcome!

I love this project! I have been collecting components for months to build something like that. But I plan to use some kind of tall 'dustbin' upside down for the body. Also I thought about some kind of cheap lidar for navigation if image recognition is too computing expensive

Sounds awesome! Yeah, i've been looking into using a cheap lidar as well and might implement it later on this robot. It's really good for mapping up the environment around the robot which will make navigation much better and just keep the image recognition for recognising faces and what kind of object is seen.
