This Iq My Personal Robot

 
#1

I designed IQ as a proof of concept robot.It is made of foam core 5mm thick board with .020 styrene plastic sheet overlays. He is 4.5 feet tall and can telescope its head another 8 inches using a camera tripod with motor drive. There is a windows 8.1 tablet installed on its chest. Power comes from a lithium battery pack for drive wheels and a 12 vdc sla battery for the electronics. The EZB 4 is connected in client mode. It is designed not to tip over with anti tipping brackets beneath the lower frame..The movement speed is moderate for stability. The arms are from a Robosapien that i received that did not work.I gutted the arms and installed 3 servos for each arm .It can rotate its arms ,elbows and open and close hands.

@rb550f, With that type of material does the lighter weight help with maneuverability of the whole bot ?

The weight of the robot is about 15 lbs with batteries. The super structure is the aluminum camera tripod i picked up at a garage sale...Using the foam boards is easy but very time consuming measuring and cutting.But the cost of the robot body is very low..Also here is a pick of the remote I am using with EZB.
It is 2.4 ghz wireless.Got it on Newegg.com. Even has and mouse and touch pad,perfect for robot control.It is quite small and has lithium battery.
