Chives Version 1.4 Completed




I finished the basic butler robot today. All it is now is a voice controlled motorized base with a wireless web camera. The voice recognition works very well and the internet control of it is amazing. The drive system is not perfect, it doesn't travel perfectly straight. It worked better than I expected but after all, its just two old powerwheel motors with bike wheels hot glued to them. Not bad. Phidgets worked well also, they stopped working for an hour(I put in too high current,oops). Then they went back to normal and everything was perfect. Ill post more detailed information later but for now, just look at the pics. Also, I might make room on my server for guests to just view the robot video feed ,however they won;t be able to control the robot.Thats my job.
A picture says a thousand words....
