A new robot project has been published to the Instructables Circuits website which is equipped with machine learning technology allowing it to see the world using a generic camera to perform tasks depending on the detected object’s position and orientation. Check out the video below to learn more about the Raspberry Pi powered robot which is equipped with a 3D printed claw.
Features of the personal assistant robot include :
– You can ask the robot to follow you around. (Done via the TensorFlow face detection computer vision algorithm)
– You can ask the robot to find you and then follow you. (Again this will use computer vision + ML)
– You can ask the robot to find any object (from this list) for you, pick it up using its robotic sled and bring it to where you are.
– You can give the robot a voice command to carry the collected item and follow you around like an assistant robot.
– Best part of all this is you can issue all these commands via speech as the robot has voice recognition.
“This robot is truly special because it can use Machine Learning models to ‘see’ the world via a generic camera and perform tasks depending on how the detected object’s position is changing in the camera. This robot is built around the ever popular Raspberry pi, the incredibly powerful RoboClaw motor controller, and the common Rover 5 robot platform. Furthermore, all the additional physical parts are 3D printed. This robot also uses the Tensorflow USB Coral accelerator to speed up the Raspberry Pi’s slow object detection. More on all this in the next few steps”
