Robot Wall E
« on: August 04, 2012, 09:15:01 PM »
Hi everyone I'm brand new to here. What brings me here is I'm Planning on building Disney pixars Wall E. now I'm brand new to robotics too, but that's ok, it's going to be a good year and a half or more before its done. Now what i want my robot to do is be able to move its head arms and obviously move around. He moves around on tracks. I don't know to much about robotics so that's why I joined this forum I figured you guys would have archives of basics and beyond. Now if you guys can point me in the right direction as to where to begin I'd sure appreciate it and I will post my progress for you guys. Here is an example of what I want it to do

A good place to start is the $50 Robot (cost more now but still not much). See the Robot Tutorials at the top of this forum.
Then modify and expand its capabilities to learn more.

The Wall E bot is possible to build if the 'compactor' feature is eliminated. The 'compactor' space is needed for batteries, motors, gear boxes, processor, sensors and other circuits.
Fun movie.

Of course! I know real robot have limitations, I belong to the walle builders group. Now do you guys think that it would be best to build the mechanics first or build the actual shell that will house the components?

I, personally, would build a basic frame with the same dimensions and all the servos, sensors, and such (his skeleton, if you like), and then build the aesthetic frame around it.

Done.
