Wall-E Personal Assistant with Raspberry Pi #PiDay
Look, Wall-E and a cat! Thanks to Stefano Filippone for sending pointing us to this project!
Terminator Wall-e is my personal assistant based on Raspberry Pi3 and moved by 5 XL-320 robotics servo by Robotis. All mechanical parts have been 3D printed using a FlashForge Creator PRO. I’ve choosen to use XL-320 servos because of their small size and ability to be chained using the Robotis openCM controller. They perform very smooth movements which you can appreciate on the videos I uploaded.
This is a Terminator version of Wall-e because the video input he captures using the PiCamera is processed through OpenCV and the output is displayed using a Terminator style view. Terminator Wall-e is programmed using Python and PyGame.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
