created 3 EZ-Robots, 13 achievements

82 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

Baxter With Ax-12 And Iotiny

Baxter is an unauthorized clone of EZ Robot's JD Humanoid robot. Baxter and JD Baxter's back His full name is: JD (Tiny) BAXTER, Wip We just call him Baxter. JD because he is clone of EZ Robot's JD Humanoid robot. (Tiny) because his controller is the EZ-B ioTiny. BAXTER is from: EZ-B4 controller, AX-12 servos, Tethered Robot. Wip because he is a Work in progress. Baxter has EZ-robot head and grippers. His "chassis" is from a Robotis Preamium Bioloid robot kit. The 12 AX-12 servos have been mounted in the JD configuration. Power is from a 12Vdc Supply. 12 Vdc for the AX-12 servos. A power distribution board has 7.4 and 5 Vdc...

My 'bot "wilber" (now "ez Wilber")

Apologies if this is too long. My .bot "Wilber" Wilber was constructed from a Lego Mindstorm EV3 kit. The self-balancing robot build instructions and EV3 program are from a tutorial by Laurens Valk. http://robotsquare.com/2014/07/01/tutorial-ev3-self-balancing-robot/ He called the robot "BALANC3R". Laurence Valk also wrote a very good book "The Lego Minstorms EV3 Discovery Book" I wanted to enhance the BALANC3R by giving it a voice, more control modes, speech recognition and video control. This is the Arduino Wilber: From top to bottom: Pixy CMUcam5 video camera EV3 IR sensor EasyVR microphone EV3 Gyro sensor Lego Mindstorms EV3 controller 2 1/2" speaker The ‘back pack’ had: Ar...

My Talking Robot, Lester

My website 'http://my-robot-lester.weebly.com' describes how I added a voice to my Robotis Bioloid Premium Robot that I call "Lester" using an Arduino mini. I plan to use the EZ-B v4 WiFi Robot Controller to add command response to voice, command response to smart phone apps, etc. Looking forward to receiving my EZ-B v4. I will also use the EZ-B v4 to expand the capabilities of robots made with the Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit
