This robot was built by an ezrobot intern as a project to demonstrate how to help disabled. The speech recognition control has a few verbal commands programmed. If you have your speech recognition calibrated, you can speak the following phrases to have the robot feed you. - robot feed me - robot grab the spoon - robot stand - robot let the spoon go

Introduction

EZ-Robot Revolution Software Apps include assembly instructions for your robot. When you load a project, the EZ-Builder software will download the required EZ-Bits and ask if you would like to view the assembly instructions. In this lesson, we will explain how the assembly instructions work and teach you to become an expert robot builder! Click here to view the software tutorial.

*Note: When connecting servos to the EZ-B, pay attention to match the colors. Just like your home theater, the BLACK wire of the servo connects to the BLACK side of the EZ-B pins. Here is a video.


Servo Orientation

Keep a close eye on the EZ-Bit's physical features so you can identify the orientation. In this example, notice the direction of the servo with recognizable features of the real physical EZ-Bit in your hand. If you connect an EZ-Bit backward, your robot will behave funny and not work as expected - but might be worth the laugh!
