More Detailed i-SOBOT

Has anyone noticed there are many "too vague" descriptions of actions in the card and manual to actually know exactly how i-SOBOT will move and what will be spoken? I propose working on a more complete description of each move and posting the results to this forum thread. Is there interest in this? Any ideas?

I'm interested in a FAQ of the i-sobot!

The manuals were probably translated from Japanese. Usually when a product originate from foreign countries, you gotta give a little leniency on the language barrier and usage.

You should see the Bioloid manuals! The majority of it makes sense, but you can obviously sense Korean language behind the translation!

The idea of an i-SOBOT FAQ is a good idea too. I think it could be handled the same way as a detailed command/action list. If each person chose one topic, wrote it up, and posted it to the same thread, we would end up with a nice FAQ and new detailed Action/Command list. When I get some time here, I'll choose one topic, explore it, and write it up for posting.

i-SOBOT Action Table - Detailed Revision
Joystick Control
1 Walk forward
2 Walk backward
3 Walk Forward while turning left
4 Walk forward while turning right
5 Step left
6 Step right
7 Walk backwards while turning right ***
8 Walk backwards while turning left ***

*** Corrects an error in the i-SOBOT Action Table

Ok, so this is the start of a more detailed Action Table
with the first eight actions explained, and two error corrections
noted for turning directions, in 7 and 8.

Joystick Control Mode


09 Turn Forward Counterclockwise ***
10 Turn Forward Clockwise ***
11 Turn Backwards Clockwise
12 Turn Backwards Counterclockwise

Code: Select all
All directions are from i-SOBOT's perspective.

The clock direction is also established by an eye
position above a standing i-SOBOT.

Turning Conventions
Moves 9, 10, 11, and 12 were renamed to "Turn" because the motion creates a significant radius of turning curvature, i.e. it moves in a circle, either in the forward or backward directions.

Not a Point Source Turn
So technically, this is not a point source rotational pivot about a single point axis but rather one that defines a circle with a diameter.

Diameter of Turning Circle
The measured actual circle created has approximately a 4-inch diameter. This appears to be the minimal amount of space required for an i-SOBOT pivotal turn inscribing a circle (Be sure to add in the foot size to the equation on both sides plant).
