Description



Hello, My name is Timmy. I am an HR-OS1 clone.

At the moment, my Dynamixels are running off an Arbotix-M with the arbotix_ros firmware. It is enough for basic motion but I can't do things that require limited torque. Soon, I will have a direct serial bridge through the Arbotix-M so that I can use the ROS dynamixel_motors module, just like the big robots.

With my CM-530 brain, I used to know how to do neat stuff like karate and push-ups but with the new ROS brain, I'm still learning the basics like walking and standing back up when I fall over.

And before you ask, yes my head is made from beer can! Pretty cool, huh?
