SimAr: A DIY Semi-Intelligent Multifunctional Robot @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Gaurav Kumar and TECHEONICS have put together a SimAr (Semi-Intelligent Multifunctional Robot) with Raspberry Pi and other readily accessible electronics and 3D printed parts. Here’s more via hackster:
When the body got completed, we started working on the wiring and the electronic system in the robot. The material we used is 4 Arduino Uno, Raspberry Pi, L298N Motor driver boards, boost converter, 7-inch touch LCD, Logitech and Intex camera, 8*8 metrics display, amplifier, speakers and wires for connection and zip tie for the net and tidy wiring. We used Arduino for controlling the motors and servo in the robot, Raspberry Pi is used for image processing, facial human tracking system, and voice recognition system. The LCD is connected to the Raspberry Pi for displaying the output.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
