How do machines perceive their environment? How do they communicate with each other? What is the difference between human senses and electrical sensors? The Uncanny Senses is a project featuring three servo motor robots that mimic the human senses of sight, sound, and touch. Each servo bot has a plaster casted sense organ molded from the facial features of the three team members. They are composed of an Arduino microcontroller, two servo motors, and a sensor that corresponds to one of the human senses. The sight bot has an infrared proximity sensor, the sound bot has a noise level sensor and the touch bot has a capacity touch sensor.
