RoboSavvy is currently developing a 1m tall
Humanoid for a UK University as part of a consulting/research project.
The Humanoid will be based on Robotis servos (MX series)
and will include advanced features such as onboard i7 PC, 24+ degrees of freedom, advanced Vision systems and Physics simulator
The whole project has been divided into several steps, which we'll be blogging about over the coming weeks.
We're currently on Step1/2 which is CAD Design and BOM assessment.
The next steps will Involve the actual Fabrication of the frames (check our progress cutting metal with our in house CNC
) and Development of the Robot Software and Physics Simulator.
A Body shell
is also planned, incorporating clever, hybrid fall management solutions
combining software and hardware features.
Over the coming weeks we will be sharing with the community our progress and our findings and progresses addressing the challenges of the added size, weight, power consumption and fabrication.
