The start

This is the story of Robbie the robot and his evolution
In this blog i will show my ideas and experiments to help Robbie become more
First this is what Robbie is at the moment is a differential drive robot running the ROS system hes has one 7 DOF arm and a Kinect for vision on a pan and tilt post.
The servos are AX12 dynamixels and a USB2Dynamixel for control. The base is controlled by a robotics connection serializer the main computer is a I3 with 6 gigs of ram. His capabilities are navigation basic arm control head tracking and the AI system uses to voice control to move to selected targets and a basic meet and greet routine of about 4 questions using NLTK where he will remember the question of the current session
