We love Ohbot – MADE IN STROUD
We love this robot so much it is going to be used as a major part of level 1 and 2 course. Some of the suggested projects are attached.
|Project Title||Level||Description||Additional Requirements|
|RoboActor||1||Program the robot to act out a famous scene from your favourite film. Even better if two robots could be used.||None|
|RoboRap||1||To rap out your favourite music. To activate led hair or optic fibre hair at same time||Optic fibre hair connected to Ohbot and activated from 3 spare ports|
|RoboReceptionist||1||Use light, touch and distance sensors to activate speech and intonation.
Extension use more sensor
|Add sensors to the kit|
|Roboactor||2||Act not only with facial response but movement of 2 D limb structure with 7 servo motors.
Wire and build an extension kit. Program so that the acting also reacts to light sound and touch
|Need to program I2C and have an extension board for 7 extra servos
Need to create a 2D jointed frame laser cut for the robot
|Robospaceman||3 – 4||Send the robot to near space using a weather balloon and record experience.
This would be a replica of the Ohbott project. It would require a video recording device. Materials would have to be hardened. This could be done as a 4 person project.
Video capture device
|RoboReactive||3||Connect the Ohbot to the Google AI and text to voice control. Connect to raspberry pi. Consider the Ohbot recording and publishing to the web class conversations||Raspberry pi acting as webserver|
|RudeBot||4||Connect to Ohbot to Google’s visual recognition AI and get it to say things about people as they pass by. Similar to Ohbot project at Manchester Museum but with simpler visual recognition||Raspberry pi|
