About the Campaign
THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENT ROBOTIC ASSISTANT(PROJECT)
This project is inspired by NASA’s Hard-coded ROVER which is currently on mars assisting the company in it’s space related researches.I want to take the ROVER a step Further and add artificial intelligence to my version of an assistant with a cost just below $3000 while NASA incurred an expense of 2.5 billion dollars in creating theirs.
My Version of the Rover would be able to do so much more with the techniques I mentioned throughout my book – The Guide To Artificial General Intelligence – My version would be able to Learn,Think and Act on it’s own.
You Can also give it these basic commands as it learns new ones
· You can ask the robot to follow you around. (Done via the TensorFlow face detection computer vision algorithm)
· You can ask the robot to find you and then follow you. (Again this will use computer vision + ML)
· You can ask the robot to find any object for you, pick it up using its robotic sled and bring it to where you are situated.
· You can give the robot a voice command to carry the collected item and follow you around.
· Best part of all this is you can issue all these commands via speech as the robot has voice recognition.
Total project cost: $2962.87
3D PRINTED PARTS
The following 11 parts would be printed and delivered by MR ANYTHING TECH which is a 3D printing service at IOWA,USA.The production and delivery would cost a total of $1016.40
1. Base Plate: This part covers the opening on the Rover 5 platform. It also serves as the track for the robot sled linear gears. The robot sled motor and gears also mount to this part
2. Sled arm 1/2: These 2 parts are the actual robotic sled arms that come together to pick up an object. The top of these parts also have linear gears which make them move.
3. Distance sensor mount: This 3d printed part mounts to the underside of the base plate. It houses the ultrasonic distance sensor used to detect when to pick up objects
4. Motor gear: This part friction-fits onto the motor and converts the motor rotation into a 12 tooth gear rotation.
5. Transmission gear 1: this part takes the motor gear movement and sends it to the first robot sled arm.
6. Transmission gear 2: this part takes the linear movement from the first robotic sled arm and reverses it while sending it to the second robotic sled arm.
7. Gear Cover: This part covers the gear assembly to protect it. It also helps secure the top of the robotic sled arms in place.
8. Servo holder: This part mounts to the top of the gear cover and houses the servo used to rotate the webcam
9. Webcam axle: This part mounts to the top of the gear cover on the opposite side of the servo holder and supports the webcam as it pivots.
10. Webcam holder: This part houses the actual webcam and its connected to the Webcam axle and the servo holder allowing it to pivot.
11. Robot Shell: This whale shaped shell is the final piece that goes over all the electronics to help hide and protect them. This part also contains the voice recognition status LEDs and also the push-button power switch.
1. Soldering iron
2. Screw driver set
3. Wire strippers
5. Voltmeter tester
6. Nuts and Bolts
All at a cost of $49.6 but with be bought at the electrical store by myself in Naira.
