My Talking Robot, Wilber

This is my talking robot, Wilber

(Don't know how the image got rotated)

He was made with a Lego Mindstorm EV3 kit with Gyro and IR sensors.
The build instructions and software for the basic robot can be found at:

A big thanks to Laurens Valk.

I added a few things in an attempt to enhance his capabilities.
His 'back pack' includes an Arduino UNO, Emic-2 text to speech module, EasyVR speech recognition module, FrSky RC receiver, and HC-06 Bluetooth module. There is a Pixy CMUcam5 mounted above the IR sensor.

He was to have 6 modes of control, all with voice response to the commands.
The modes were to be: IR sensor & Beacon, Voice Recognition, 2 Cell Phone Apps. via Bluetooth, Radio Control, and Video control.

I got each control mode working on a breadboard but when I tried to tie them together my Arduino programing skills fell short. Modes were to be selected by the IR Beacon controller but I couldn't get that to work.

The IR control and RC controls do work but the RC doesn't include the speech capability.

I [b]need my EZ-B v4 WiFi Robot Controller[b]! (It was ordered 14 days ago)
Here is a short video showing the IR control and speech capabilities of Wilber.

oldrobotbuilder

awesome ,just like MIP segway system.

Yea pictures taken from iphone's tend to get rotated for some reason.

Anyways I like the bot! I get to play with Mindstorms in my robotics club.

turn your iphone to the left,so you get straight up pics and pananoramic vieuws.
also if you take a video turn to the left.
