I want to build a self powering robot with 4 wheels, an actuating arm coming out the top, and enough power to be decently useful in everyday life. I was planning on controlling it with speech recognition, and I was thinking of adding various sensors as needed.
I was planning on building out of steel, as I get a hella huge discount on all types of it, I have access to a wicked sweet TIG welder, and yea, I want a super duper strong frame.
Programming doesn't scare me, as I am "fluent" in VB, FORTRAN, C/C++, Java, HTML, Ruby, and I've dabbled in weird stuff like brainfuck.
So far I think I'll be needing a Pico-ITX MoBo, a DC transformer to power the motors at 24VDC, a DC generator, a PLC, and the sensors themselves.Feedback, comments, and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
