All details are in the log :)
A robot for a personnal assistant : RORI
All details are in the log :)
I am very happy today to say I am ready to present GLaDOs at the Sci-Fi Contest.
GLaDOs works (help me, she watchs me with her terrifying RGB LED and ask me if I want some cake) but one servomotor is missing (I got it this week-end) for the base.
Moreover, I will do alot of work to finish this project. Indeed, I must replace non free things like Google TTS/STT. I must develop RORI for a lot of other projects. And make a beautiful transport box too.
I want to say thank you to all people who help me (Nomis, peterboy, people who print my parts, and people who support me), Thank you.
I will continue this project or an other project (I have a lot of idea and I want to make a lot of other robots with a better finition).
Some photos from 2 public demonstrations at Rennes :
For the Arduino Day :
From "JN3" (photo from © Blinky – Collectif 18-55):
This night, I built the head with some pewter and glue to isolate and fix the camera and the LED. Some pictures :
The welder in the hackerspace (Breizh-Entropy/hacknowledge in Rennes).
the RGB LED welded
Test the LED with lot of wire
Fix the camera
You are a monster
OLD VIDEOS (Go to the third video if you want a recent one)
First video. Sorry it is in french. The User Interface is very ugly, but it is an old test. You can see voice control (using Google...), some questions, some function (mute, lock, navigate on the Internet, sort a forum and show some interesting topics, run some software).
The second video is in french too. It is the demonstration of the linux client (with the final interface). We can see new function like the generation of an avatar and the search of some pictures in the computer:
NEW VIDEO !!!
And a recent video where we can see RORI's server and me who control the computer with the RORI's Android application and the new text-to-speech using Google (not espeak or festival). It is the first video in english :). You can control the Android App with the voice (but it is difficult to film correctly, so i use the keyboard):
PS: Sometimes, RORI doesn't execute some function. It is normal, if you give an order to RORI and if RORI is hungry, it doesn't respond (or if RORI doesn't want to answer). And if the answer is too long, the text-to-speech doesn't work.
So, this is an other video where we can see GLaDOs controlled by the Arduino, then we can see the camera, then controlled by RORI and finally some photos :
Soon, a demonstration of GLaDOs with a motor in the base.
I think this is the hardest part of the project. Thanks for all the team to help me to realize this part. I have already use some 3D modeling software like Solidworks or Catia, but they are not free, so they do not enter on my processus for this project.
We used Blender and FreeCAD to model all parts (not the head, because an other guy model it for me some month before).
You can download all 3D files in multiple format here : https://github.com/AmarOk1412/GLaDOsReplica/tree/master/Maquette%203D
To print all parts you can use the software replicatorG : http://replicat.org/
To print all parts we use 3 printers. (2*Replicator 2x + 1*Reprap).
P.S. : Some part are very long to print (50 hours for the base).
I based my blueprints on screenshots available here :
2 others awesome projects which inspirate GLaDOs for RORI :
Then with The Gimp 2.8 I create the blueprints (https://github.com/AmarOk1412/GLaDOsReplica/tree/master/Plans%202D)
All .xcf files are available in the subfolder 'xcf & brouillons'
GLaDOs blueprints :
The Base :
The high part of the base:
The high shell:
The cylinder for the LED:
The shell for the down part:
Print all parts and sand it
All parts are available in multiple format (.obj/.stl is the more interessant) here
This is all parts printed:
This is the disposition of all of the parts:
Paint all parts
I will print a sticker soon for the base.
For the head :
Put the RGB LED.
Then, fix the camera:
And the two servomotors:
Then, the high part of the body:
The fix the down part and the base (One motor is missing because I don't receive it):
Put the sticker:
Get some wires:
Build the first arm:
And the second. Enjoy :)
