created 3 EZ-Robots, 10 achievements

80 year old, retired computer engineer. Have built Lego(EV3) robots (Segway and Rubik Cube solver) and Robotis Bioloid Premium humanoid robot. Have used Arduino to give these projects speech and different modes of command. Completed "EZ Wilber" an EZ-Bv4 enhanced Lego Segway robot. My "EZ Lester" is a Robotis Bioloid Premium humanoid robot. This project is well underway. I am located in the San Diego North County area. My email address is: stafford.irvin@att.net

Wilber is an inverted pendulum, self balancing robot (Segway). The balancing is accomplished using a Lego EV3 controller . The structure and balancing software were developed by Laurence Valk. Communication between the EV3 and EZ-B is via a hacked Lego IR controller. Wilber tels the time, tells the date, andweres YES/NO questions, and tells us what kind of robot he is. Voice commands are used for movement control, head position control, and speach selection.

My Robotis Bioloid "Lester" driven with EZ-B4 Dynamixel plugin. This test initilializes Lester in the sit position, then the Auto Position Action' Arm Swing' raises the arms from at the side (arm 0) to streight out (arm 1) to up high (arm 2).

Lester is a Robotics Bioloid Premiun Type A robot with EZ Robot head, hands, and EZ-B4 controller. The EZ-B4 controller sends command sequences on UART 0. UART 0 is connected to a ZigT-100 Robotis controller TX/RX. The 'bot receives the command sequence on a Zig-110 TX/RX connected to the Comm Port of the CM-530 controller.

Baxter is an unauthorized clone of EZ Robot's JD Humanoid robot. The name is from: EZ-"B"4 controller, "AX"-12 servos, "Te"thered "R"obot. He has EZ-robot head and grippers. The "chassis" is from a Robotis Preamium Bioloid robot kit. The feet positions are modified to match the JD center of mass and ankle rotation. The 12 AX-12 servos have been mounted in the JD configuration. 12 VDC is routed to the AX-12 servos and an LED switching board. A power distribution board has 7.4 and 5 VDC regulators. 7.4V for the EZ-B4/2 controller and it's servos, and 5V for future sensors.
