Bought $ 5 in a charity, it Robosapiens was in perfect condition. But the author of this mod was not satisfied with its services. So the idea is he quickly came to change the integrating within a Raspberry Pi Zero card. And here is the result, a connected toy that responds to commands sent via Wifi.
On opening the little robot, the mod author understands that he will be facing a small technical problem. The base map embedded in this Robosapiens is not especially complex but absolutely special. She runs a lot of different components and in particular, seven different engines that are all controlled with precise orders. Limited rotations, running stops at specific and other movements.
So, instead of putting the base card in the trash and replace it with an ultra-complex assembly house, the author decides to cheat a little. It will incorporate a Raspberry Pi zero upstream map and make him transmit orders via the original circuit of the infrared. The robot is normally led by a small remote control. The idea is to connect the output of the sensor Raspi to simulate orders.
It remains to take the course of four robot’s power batteries and adapt to the needs of the card.
Not a big deal with a single power supply AMS1117 purchased online.
All are mounted in the robot while adding a USB Wifi key. Then we start the programming of Pi. The job is to believe in the basic card it receives a precise infrared simulation. So you have to submit an equivalent signal. The detail of the process and code are described in great detail on the author’s blog and the result is there.
The Robosapiens does not respond to voice command as one might think at first, it responds only because Python orders were shipped via another machine Wifi. But one can easily imagine running a remote control type of application that would provide a graphical interface to recurring orders as the ability to program repeated orders to various schedules.
The author has even incorporated a hashtag on Twitter sensor makes the robot roar whenever the keyword is #wakedino tweeted. One can imagine tons of uses that go notification of an email from a specific account at the end of a calculation or other process. The author has already added a camera to the Raspberry Pi zero for the robot to shoot, streamer or take pictures.
But most interesting is, it seems to me, the method that can be used in different solutions adapted to tons of uses and different materials. It is possible to control so any appliance that uses a remote control airplane. TV, air conditioning, toys and other various machines. It is even possible to take this idea to other types of commands. One can very well imagine a mounting such remotely initiate an unconnected boiler in a country house by sending an order via a thermostat limp.
