Project Proposal


WALL-E and others were recreated many times by hobbyists every time having something special and interesting in their implementation. it becomes very important because of the fact that this robot has 2 eyes. Fun. Such famous robots like R2-D2. There are not many vision enabled robotics kits (affordable to hobbyists) on the market yet. So.e. Stereo Vision System (SVS) board aimed for robotics applications and with 2 camera on board! The board also provides wireless connectivity (which I really wanted for remote control) and allows connecting some motors. Of course my implementation was not supposed to become 100% replica of it (still need to get more experience in such type of hobby projects). which are used by many robots' builders for their hobby.WALL-E. etc. servos. Of course the issue is not critical at all. :) Similar happened to me.. robotics kits.. hardware parts. And it is really nice that more and more of such robots are coming. so choice is quite limited. unless somebody recreates famous T-800 . since nowadays many different manufacturers provide wide range of electronics. So. . research.Project introduction It is funny to note how movies inspire robotics builders . but at least I wanted to get kind of "Wow. The fact that we are going to give computer vision to our robot puts some hard constraints in selection of its "brains". Or. I decided to continue and to building a robot. cameras.. And when it comes to robots like WALL-E. one single board provides all we need for a robot like WALL-E. let's get it done! One of the key things to think about starting a new robotics project is what would become a brain for the robot. which became quite famous not so long ago . it is WALL-E" reaction from somebody how takes a look at it. to be precise. sensors. fun. we need two cameras.. servos and sensors. the CPU/electronics part which would handle all the robot's hardware like motors. Johnny 5. if we want to give our robot's vision. i. if you plan to put something what mimics eyes instead of more or less real eyes. So. But this is really not so interesting and not something I wanted to do. etc. then we need to use cameras. etc.hobbyists always tend to build their favorite robots from many different movies.

Time ScheduleOn the basis of work element identified time schedule will be.      Input phase Processing phase Driving And output phase Testing Working project 20 hrs 20 hrs 10 hrs 20 hrs 10 hrs Budget Estimated budget will be 18000 INR AProx/ 290 USD Components budget.9000 Workmanship budget 9000 Prerequisites for this project C programming Matlab MSRD Proteus Simulator .

the hex insert will be.Some of the similar work snapshots I have collected Wall-E Homebuilt Project: Let's Get Started! Two hip motors from my WowWee RSv2 with new bevel gears. Middle. although the gear itself will not be use. Hex nylon rod and brass packer ready for bearings top existing outer casing from . RSV2 motor gear welded to beval gear. and hex rod. Shafts fitted to motors. .

) .2v NIMH battery. (Pick up the conversation thread here.outer housing reamed to fit bearing. Gears fitted and alloy brackets for Acrylic base. and 7. Acrylic base. Component parts. motors.

(Pick up the conversation thread here. The electronic device [top] is an O-LED from Parallax for video or slide show. [right] Starting to come together.Alloy brackets to hold the main body. Light ply and Balsa wood.) . Component parts for the main body. LED battery voltage monitor.

Both air rams are glued back to back and the grippers had to be cut to get the correct shape. I had to sacrifice some parts here that are never to rejoin the Technics set. Grippers and arms are made from LEGO Technics. 1mm ply added to sides. .Imm ply panels [top] to be glued to ply below. 1mm ply parts for the arms.

1mm Ply parts for the grippers.Parts for the arms. Modifications to the grippers. . Grippers complete.

(Pick up the conversation thread here.More ply and balsa to form the metal panel effects. Starting to come together even more! Body now on base. with arms and grippers fitted.) Wall-E's hands are now added. Making Wall-E's eyes. . Ply discs slipped over the pill tubes. 1mm ply and two alloy pill containers.

1mm ply to form the neck.5mm balsa applied to the frames. .) Balsa added to thealloy tube to form the rear end.1. Head almost complete. (Pick up the conversation thread here.

Ply covered in 1. All parts for the neck and head. the top section will house the head servo. Balsa detail now added. . Neck attatched to the head.) Testing the pan and tilt.Supports for both halves.5mm balsa. (Pick up the conversation thread here.

Rivet detail using White pva glue and thinned 20% with water. A sharp needle used to dip into glue and form 3 rivets at a time. Painting begins. Rust brown layer. .Most parts for Wall-E.

Glue dries clear. and metallic silver paint. Neck area now weathered. .) Same procedure with the body. metal rust. (Pick up the conversation thread here. More work to do on the head though. Grey primer.

) Two more stages to go for the desired effects. tracks to be weathered later. (Pick up the conversation thread here. One more stage to go.Body now weathered. . Parts weathered and ready to put together.

(Pick up the conversation thread here. . tracks also weathered.Arm covers.) Arms in place. Components for the LED eyes. Rear door schocks weathered.

this is to turn the lights on when he encounters a dark corner or when the house lights are turned off. notice the CDs on WallE's head. This was to test the LEDs. The ping sensor Acrylic discs for the ping TX and RX [top] has to go in front of the LEDs yet.Circuit board completed.) All wired up ready to slip into the tubes. . (Pick up the conversation thread here. and discs for the LEDs. Is this cool or what?? Just need to connect the circuit now. Circuit diagram.

.Another step closer to completion.
