Topic: Arduino controlled animatronic ED-209 (Read 975 times) previous topic - next topic


I am in the process of turning a 15" high Hot-Toys model of ED-209 from Robocop into an animatronic robit,  controlled by Arduino.


I am currently at the CNC stage of the build but thought I would post this in case anyone wants to keep up with my progress.

In total there will be five stepper motors,  all controlled by an arduino. I plan to have an arduino in the base communicting wirelessly via Xbee to a board in the main body of ED.  This is mainly to keep the amount of wires I need to pass to the head at a minimum.

I hope to sync the the motion to the sound effects of the '20 seconds to comply'  sequence from the film.  I also hope to get some motion tracking in there If I have not lost the will to live by the end of it (and if I have any space left)
