My Female Android Robot Project Update.

Hello everyone.

As you know there are a few female android prototypes in the market or seen at the convention show.
However, the androids are very simple because they can't walk, and some are simply pre-recorded voice
or very simple AI.

I want to be the first to make an advance android female robot that can walk with AI that can interact with people
and the surrounding.

If it works GREAT, and if it does NOT work ...life goes on with a large credit card debt.

Short form spec for the android.

Pro:

Project Name: Project Aiko
Code Name: Aiko
Height: 153 cm
Weight: still adding more hardware
camera: 3 cameras with 3ccd
battery: MN-polymer
Mainboard: C7 with 8Gig solid state.
Sensors: 12 sensors (max 16)
DOF: 30
Software: Sandai (advance version)

Con:
Sandai can Not handle center of gravity when wearing shoes.
CPU and memory intensive
Must connect to the internet to get data from our server.
(Can run without connecting to our server, but action are limited)

Aiko body was custom made from implant silicone from head to toe, therefore, it looks and feels as close as a female human.
The body is now being re-done and re-designed in Japan with our new specification to make it looks more female like with a slimmer body and lighter weight.

I am hoping to have a demo video sometimes this week.
In the mean time, I have upload the pictures.




I put the picture behind the black background, because I thought it looks better.
p.s. If you have any suggestions, please post it here or email or PM me.

Thank

Hi

Update June 19/07

Here is some more pictures.
There is a lot of screws around her head, but lucky she has hair to cover them.
The glass is going to be polarized lens. To make the vision clearer and to make the
camera vision see better.

Impressive realism with Aiko's face!
What is the Sandai software?
and "C7 with 8Gig solid state" ?

Sorry, I should have explained a bit more details and naming.

The project naming and meaning.

Overall Project Name
SANDAI: System automation network diverse artificial intelligence

Software running Name
BRAINS: Bio Robot Artificial Intelligence Neural System

Hardware (Android Name)
Aiko: "Love child" japanese meaning for aiko name.


C7 is a mainboard that has cpu and memory.
The memory I put in the c7 is solid state 8Gig.
Meaning If I shake the robot or the robot fall down it doesn:t loose the
data or damage the data.
The downside of the solid state is that it is very small in memory.

The Aiko has it owns internal OS and software.

One software (BRAINS software) control everything, the AI, talking, recognition, walking, sensors, servo etc.. even the KONDO RCB3J
The RCB3J is used to control the head. RCB3J is cheap in price and it does the job

I hope that clear some of the questions you may have.

Hi here is the video....


Sorry, there are a lot cut scenes, due to youtube limit of 10 minutes.
I have to cut some part out.

Hi all

I know there are still a lot of works to do for Aiko.
That is why I like to post on the forum, to get your inputs and suggestions.

In case, you are wondering what is project Aiko?
I have written a short abstract... hopefully it make more sense now what I am trying to achieve with Project Aiko.


What is Project-Aiko?

Here at Project Aiko, we are trying to design an artificial intelligence neural network system which uses both dynamic software and hardware linked together to mimic some human behaviour.

By using our custom designed artificial intelligence software named the Bio Robot Artificial Intelligence Neural System (a.k.a. B.R.A.I.N.S.) together with our custom designed shell which is a facsimile of the human female body, we have created what we believe to be a uniquely designed android (a.k.a. Aiko).

Aiko’s head and body were made from silicone, which gives the body a more natural look and feel of a human figure. Aiko has the ability to have a conversation with you (13,000+ sentences), including the ability to learn new things. Aiko can read books, newspapers, including the ability to solve math problems. In additional, she can recognize colour, faces and simple objects.

In the future, we hope to be able to implement advanced functionality such as being able to distinguish between two different drinks and then being able to bring it to you. Other functionality would be an ability to massage your shoulders and neck, having Aiko tell you to bring an umbrella when it rains or wear warmer clothes when it is cold outside. That and much more is planned.

Our approach to this project is to have things be modular which gives us the ability to add more functionality and sub-systems in the future as permitted by our resources, such as a taste bud and breathing system.

Sincerely,
Le :D

Hi all.

I manage to get back the body in one piece.
I will have demo video of Aiko doing some housework within a few weeks.:D

I just need to config the software to work with Aiko new body.
In additional, I will add more sensors.


In the meantime I have taken some pictures.

This is really amazing.
When will you have the walking perfected?
When will it be sold and for how much?

Hi...

Yes, I should put a quick video up.
I keep saying it but I will definitely do this week.

But you can see Aiko first public appearance in Nov 2,3,4 2007 at the international center.

It will be interesting to see how Aiko will react going out door for the first time. To see NEW people faces and Objects that she never see before.
Just hope her circuit will not overload.

Hi


This is a short 6 minutes video.
A full video demonstration is 45 minutes, but I don't have the time, so 6 minutes it is.
Project Aiko.

It is still a long way to make it perfect, but one step at a time.
Next month I will show how the internal software of Aiko works.
Including Motion Tracing, Ojbect Tracking and recognition. And Face Extraction and Recognition

I still need to make the movenment more smooth. But one step at a time.

Also, Aiko will make her first public appearance at the International Center on Nov 2007.
Aiko will do 45 minutes of Full demonstration.

Thank for reading. :lol:

I hope Youtube Work.

Hi

Let's see.
My guess for Aiko to walk will cost about another $9000.
I have to use Seiko Motor which cost about $600 each.
Hopefully, I will find a sponsor soon, so that I can continue
my research and make her walks.

In case you are wondering, Aiko has senors in her whole body,
and both her arms. I am saving money so that I can put the sensors
in her face too.


Since, I have spent so much time taking pictures, I might as well post it up.

Amazing! Will this be more of a proof of concept android, or do you intend to build in some applications such as housework, etc.? I believe popular applications, for some androids in general, will be receptionist and secretary.

Aiko new hand

Here is Aiko's new prototype Hand.

I have tested the new hand at Star Bucks picking up the coffee.
I didn't get the change to video it, but I will video the next time I am there.


Pro:
1) 5 movable fingers
2) Compact size. Same as human's hand
3) Will have complete sensors for feedback
4) Low Power consumption 5V
5) Can be use for Aiko.
6) 15 movable joints
7) Material Cost $1800

Can be use for Aiko or for human. Life-like mechanical limb that has the ability to feel physical sensation.
(Control by human muscle) special senors and controller will attach to the human's muscle. Another words, controlling the hand with our muscles.

Human Brain >> Nerve Impulse >> Muscle >> Aiko's Hand

This technology can be beneficial for people born with or who have undergone amputations.

Since, I can't find any volunteer, I guess I will test it on myself.
:shock:
