I'm a bit of a newcomer at robots but could you tell me whats the first thing you do when getting started building your very own costom bot. And could show me a picture of what you made?
I have not started yet, but i think i'll start by making it mobile, and fit all needed sensors for it.
It would propably run on wheels, as they are a energy-efficient way for a bot to move, and easy to control.
for the sensors it should have some vision, maybe web cam with shape regocnition, or simple IR scanner for distance.
It should become fully autonymous, and make decisions by the situation it's currently in.
I haven't figured out it's purpose yet, but if i don't get any ideas, i'll make it a social bot, that uses text to speech, and communicates and answers questions based on the AI i would create.
My goal is to make a learning AI, so i dont have to hardcode every single word/sentence/situation.
I know it's a long shot, but i just wan't to code the AI, the bot it self could be anykind.
Other than that, i'd make a budged for how much i would spend on the Bot, and think what modules/gear would be needed to achieve my goal.
First think would be having a clear vision of what i'm about to build
I don't have that yet, but i could try to build the transmitters and receivers in the mean time, and make em so, that could add features later.
ps: im sleepy and drunk, its 05:15am here, sorry for rambling nonsence
