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.
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.
