I present to you what I think is going to be one of the best jobs I’m doing lately. The good thing about this is not only the project itself, but thanks to it several people are collaborating and it is being very rewarding.
It is a challenge since it is an animatronic project, this means that not everything in it is a technical / electronic concept, but rather that it requires finishes and an external appearance.
- Bluethooth control system
- 12 Servomotors
- 2 DC motors
- Audio module
- Head caress sensor
To make the whole system work I am developing two pcbs that will be connected by a flat cable. The upper part will have an arduino mega-pro and the lower part, the audio module and the communication module.
The audio files (in mp3 format) can be loaded from the micro-sd that incorporates the audio module. In this way and having the source code, it is possible to customize the doll completely.
WHAT WILL YOU BE ABLE TO DO?
The doll, as planned, will be able to move, and it will do so in a funny way, emulating the natural inclination of the hip that normally occurs when walking. Our doll is going to move with the traction wheels but the inclusion of this movement will make us believe that he is walking.
ASSEMBLY AND CONSTRUCTION
Soon I will put the links to the assembly steps and the necessary files for the construction.
I will also include (with your consent) the people who are collaborating in this project … thanks to them we will definitively shape the doll.
