DIY Robot With Arduino at its Heart #ArduinoMonday


Make Robot friend. Literally. John Choi’s come up with a tutorial, open-source platform, and support materials to make a robot that can play a piano, water your plants, stir the pot, put a hot dog on a bun, and be your best friend. — via Arduino Blog

The Multipurpose Mobile Manipulator is divided into three major parts: the base, the arms, and the chest. The base contains motors for mobility and batteries to power the robot, enabling it to navigate around. The arms contain adaptable grippers, shoulder and elbow joints, and an extensible limb for grabbing and moving things with its environment. Meanwhile, the chest connects all of these together with control electronics and serves as a platform for an intelligent laptop-for-a-face. An Arduino Mega at its heart makes interfacing with sensors and actuators super easy, while the robot’s functionality can also be expanded by simply attaching new electronics and sensors to its mounting areas.
