More specifically, it is a mobile torso humanoid with no real head, no hands, and half length femurs. This robot also has a 2 or 4 axis 10 segment spine.
The head, hands, and legs are Augmented Reality. On this robot the 2 main points that are tracked are the atlas (top of the neck) and the pelvis. To the atlas we attach the AR head and AR hands, and the AR legs are attached to the pelvis.
Tracking techs like Intel Realsense T265, the Vive Tracker, ARCore, even ARUCO
markers from OpenCV can be used to help blend virtual components to real components.
I've tried all these.
My goal is to give this robot 3 main modes of operation. Sitting. Lying, and Wheelchair.
1. Sitting- posing and motioning with the arms. I don't expect it to stay up without it's arm. It's pretty much a tripod.
2. Lying- rolling over and doing a "mermaid" gait. Maybe.
3. Wheelchair- Maybe unrealistic, but I'm a reacher.
