Hi I wanted to do this a long time ago and would wish that i would be more complete but I think I can still show what I have been doing with my robot.

Here is a photo of its current state (right arm broke and repair is in progress):

Thought it may be of interest to document a rover platform using Stepper Motors as drive linked to an ESP32 sporting a Web gui to control movement and display Sensor data.

LadyBot...

LadyBot is my robotic head which I am working for long. She has 3 microprocessors and 5 servos for the animatronic movements. One Arduino is dedicated to webcam and MyRobotlab to track faces. One for the head movements. Now I added voice recogrition and interaction via bluetooth. She responds with some predetermined sentences on a MP3 player, command and interaction using android bluetooth app which converts text to speech and vice versa.


Custom grabbers and OpenCV capture

kwatters's picture

There's been some refactoring of OpenCV to expose a method on it that allows you to pass in a custom frame grabber directly when you tell opencv to start.  This means we can programmatically control the settings on the grabber
