Second Kinect Test

InMoov controlled with it's Kinect. This is the second test with 3 servos powered in each arm. The skeleton on the kinect is very jumpy when my arms are pointing to the robot, which acts on the servos, making the robot shake a bit eraticaly.
 

 


InMoov with 4PID triggered by PIR sensor

This script is a work in progress:

Troubleshoot with gestures InMoov2.0

I made a few test with the my updated script InMoov2full.py because Grog has implemented all the gestures into the new service and I discovered something odd.

The same gestures with exact same positions on the script don't give the same result depending on the version that calls them.

For exemple this is "rest" default position with the version 1695 (InMoov1.0). You can see "rotate" servo is facing the camera and the position on the slider is 90:


When InMoov falls flat on it's face...

Tried to catch up my phone, I bumped into the robot, and SLAM!!!!

Fortunatly InMoov is resistant, I would have expected a lot more broken.

1 thumb tip broken, neck worm piston broken, some parts dismantled in the bicep right, one forarm open dismantled partly, nothing bad.

ABS is great because you just reglue the parts with ACETONE and Voilà.


Getting InMoov to use its jaw as he speaks.

This is originally a script of Jhack, modified for my needs, since I use only 2 Arduino and Jhack uses 4.

 

 

What is nice here, is to be able to make the robot talk with jaw movements having one gesture called by voice command. This gesture "servo" has sub-gestures which roll following each phrase the robot says.
