Otto is my ongoing project in robotics. He (currently) has 2 Oopic Rs, one SSC32, one Sabretooth motor controller, a digital compass, 4 Sharp IR range detectors, one SR05 ultrasonic detector, 3 lasers (one with collimating lens), nowhere NEAR enough LEDs, wireless color camera, 2 DC gearmotors, and 17 servos. He has 3/32 aluminum plate in a few spots to help with heat dissipation and add structural strength. He is powered by two 7.2 volt RC-hobby-type 3000 milliamp batteries that (so far) will power him for at least 2 hours.
His parts bin (pieces almost ready for installation) includes 2 more lasers (one green - oooh!), 2 alcohol sensors (one the police use, one ALOT more sensitive), CO2 sensor, methane sensor, propane sensor, SpeakJet, a pile of LEDs that resembles Everest, and more miscellaneous nuts and bolts and wire spools than I can count.
He isn't reliably mobile yet as I'm still finishing up the drive programming. I'm using one Oopic for his 'head' and another for his 'feet' (drivetrain). Getting the 2 Oopics to reliably talk to each other is also an unfinished task, but I'm getting close.
In the second pic you can see the 'head' Oopic right behind his neck. The wireless cam is near his 'mouth' and you can also see the short antenna coming from it. His 4 IR sensors are located Fwd, 45 degrees R and L, and one in the rear. Two card lasers are located at his 'lower jaw' points, one laser as a 'bow-tie' (hard to see here).
His arms have 4 DOF each, plus grippers. His arms are mostly for aiding expression. When his SpeakJet is installed (speaker in 'mouth' area) his favorite phrase will probably be "Out of my way, carbon analog device!"
I also plan on putting 256k EEPROMs in each Oopic, and REALLY go hog wild with custom programming. Right now I have to finish and debug his latest code, so that may wait.
