Main goal of this project is creating powerful and versatile robotic platform, which everyone will can use for building own small social robots. In modern days this kind of machines is not so "hyped" but people still is interested in have one. In my opinion, we have technologies, algorithms, one-board computers which is enough for creating useful social robots, but with one exclusion - people don't need expect a artificial human or mind-equal partner, this type of robots, I think, must be more like smarter pet for us.
Current stage (0.5b version)
- Arduino M0
- motor driver + analog circuits
- range measurement module
Goals: development of the low level algorithms, movement control system(turns,
overcoming obstacles), working with graphical display.
