Tommy is a personal robot project that is one of my hobbies for a few years. Tommy will be about 10 years old.
The current version of the head can be radio-controlled with a remote control: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3479785 The head can move the eyes, turn the neck and fold it.
This is the first version of the head that is not equipped with microphone, camera or speaker or gyroscope. This version is intended only to give a personality to Tommy. The internal structure designed however allows the addition of other equipment without changing the current version.
The next step will be to determine different expressions for the mouth, eyes and head movements by associating them with different emotions. This step will be essential in the future to give an appearance of intelligence.
This global project aims to explore different technologies and techniques: voice recognition, voice synthesis, machine learning, deep learning, visual recognition ...
Ultimately, Tommy will be equipped with multiple computers that will be both independent but will have to interact collectively to obtain a robot with consistent behavior.
The control program and assembly plans will follow shortly and evolve gradually.
