So many time passed from my last post here. I think is a good time to write about my work and projects.
My work in social robotics field started from Rhoby 0.5 project. It was funny and small robot with two motors and some basic sensors.
Next serious step in social robotics – Rhoby 1.0, complex and useful robot which will be assistant for kids in learning some disciplines like foreign languages or geometry.
But how I said above – Rhoby 1.0 is a complex project and I need now less difficult projects and tasks, which will give me possibilities to make small steps for building something big . That sounds like very efficient way in my case.
So, let me explain you about “sidekick” for Rhoby – micRhoby.
Rhoby – open-source platform for creating a small social robots.
This robotics platform ideal for learning kids to programming and electronics. But most important what is it very useful for teaching “special” kids, with autism syndrome for example.
Few days ago I received by postal service small orange packet with my motors for the Rhoby project, and today I found a time for write this post and uncover some plans about.
Next stage of the Rhoby project will be built on 4-wheeled platform, this will give more mobility and versatility for the robot. Size of the robot will be around 35 cm in height and diameter is 13 cm. Next few weeks I’ll spend on completing the prototype of the first stage.
