A robot is a machine, especially one programmable by a computer, capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. With the advancement of technology the tasks done by humans in their daily life are being automated to make the task easier and more efficient. Volvic has been designed for this very purpose. It has been created by merging various technologies into one so that all the help required can be found in one place.
Volvic was an inspiration of BB-9E from the movie star wars. Ever since I’ve watched that movie, I wanted to have one. There are lots of toys available in the market, But, Building one and Playing with it gives more satisfaction.
The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a new generation of AI robot, capable to support human beings in all those activities which require the ability to interact actively, understanding voice commands and act accordingly, display date and time, answering simple questions, controlling as an RC car and capable of capturing video (and sometimes audio) of a location without the subjects’ knowledge. It is mainly controlled through an Android phone which is connected to it through Bluetooth. Based on Android features such as Google Voice Recognition and Tilt sensing, it can really behave like a cute, smart robot.
Volvic’s head is attached to the top of the body by the help of magnets. We have made it run separately, hence it can be used as a digital table clock.”
