The robot was built during the summer of 1999 for a class Intelligent Machines Design Lab, at the University of Florida. The plastic body was orginally an old toy from about 10 years ago, and I removed all of the stock electronics and replaced them with two Motorola 68HC11 microcontrollers. One is in single chip mode generating all of the PWM signals for the 12 servos, and the other is on expanded multiplxed mode with the control code. I also have an RC Systems voice synthesizer and a Hamatsu voice recogntion chip. The robot has 4 bump sensors, and 12 IR emitter/detector pairs for obstacle avoidance. The wooden parts were cut out on a T-Tech CNC machine, and the tool paths were drawn in AutoCAD.
