Firstly, I'm very glad to be here to share the happiness of making toy robots with you because everyone here on this forum is so friendly!
I bought a R2-D2 trashcan and decided to make a telepresence robot like spykee.
Then I use a CNC machine to build the chasis:
The next thing is to install the motors and batteries(I use 120mm transwheels):
I designed the wifi module and bought a PIC controller,the next thing is to put them into Artoo:
The bottle on the left is a auto fire extinguisher and I want to install it into Artoo so it can use its own IP camera to recognize fire and extinguish the fire automatically. Last time I use 1211 fire extinguisher and many people say it does harm to the ozone，so this time I use CHFCF3 .
I also add a fischertechnik robotic arm:
HAHA, now I can controll the robot to walk around, extinguish fire and even grasp things!
I also added micphones and speakers. The next thing is to build coordination system like northstar and write programs for obstacle avoidance(I deside to use canny edge detection+side fill+convex hull).
