ZappBot 3 – Tracked Humanoid Torso Robot

ZappBot 3 – Tracked Humanoid Torso Robot

It’s November 29, 2011 and I have been collecting parts for this Robot for about a year and started the build about November 1, 2011.

The robot is 11″ Wide, 12″ Deep and 21″ Tall.

It is controlled by a Propeller Chip P8X32A-D40 and a Digi XBee 1 mW Radio Module.

I can type commands on my PC keyboard to remote control the robot via a radio link.

The robot is programmed in Spin code.

At the present time I can send the following commands to the robot:

  • Move the Entire Robot
    • Forward, Backward, Rotate Clockwise, Rotate Counter-clockwise, Stop
  • Rotate the Torso
    • Left, Right, Center
  • Control the Head Movement
    • Pan Left, Pan Right, Pan Center
    • Tilt Up, Tilt Down, Tilt Level
  • Control the Left Arm
    • Left Shoulder Axis 1
      • Swing Up, Swing Down, Swing Forward
    • Left Shoulder Axis 2
      • Swing Up, Swing Down, Swing Out
  • Control the Right Arm
    • Right Shoulder Axis 1
      • Swing Up, Swing Down, Swing Forward
    • Right Shoulder Axis 2
      • Swing Up, Swing Down, Swing Out
  • LCD Back light
    • Turn On, Turn Off
