Just in from Chosun news in Korea, robo3 just developed a robot based on Segway structure. The robot can dance, run, and wake you up in the morning. It has 2 axis control to balance itself and can detect surrounding objects and obstacles.

The robot can be remote-controlled or manually driven. The controller being used in the robot is a touch PLC from Comfile Technology, where I work, I didn’t even know you could make something like this…

Yes, it can be customized and programmble via RS232 it says…

Hmmm, maybe I can convince them to send me a sample…

It seems like the company also sells the segway platform for building robots w/ any embedded computers…

I guess you can get one now, the pictures seems to suggest either the robot can drink a beer or maybe it can bring you a beer… (better!)

The segway robot uses ultrasonic sensors, has 28 digital inputs, 26 relay outputs, sound, voice, dancing capabilities.

It weighs 80 kg but the battery on it can last upto 8 hours.

The robot is controlled via a remote controller or in automatic mode. Average operating speed is

around 4km/hr. Hmm…pretty cool…

  2. As much as I like the CUTouch, I think it is being used only as the (nice) user interface. Note what looks like many circuit boards on the exploded diagram.

    oh yeah, that is correct, but it does act as the brain for the robot, not just a user interface…
