“A simple, easy to build face following robot made with off the shelf parts.
Simple and easy to build face following robot with off-the-shelf parts for anyone to create. No need for expensive or specialized tools such as 3D printers, CNC machines, or laser cutters. Most of the items you can easily order from Adafruit or Amazon and probably already have laying around.
The robot is basically a line following robot but instead of following a line, the robot will track to the faces it sees. Attach a container, box, basket, etc. to hold things. The robot then can be used to delivery bot. ChocoRobo likes to deliver chocolates to kids and make friends.
The goal of the project was to make an autonomous vision robot that is easy enough for kids to build (well with adult supervision and help). Worked out really well as the kids were able to piece together the components with screws and rubber bands (and they put together the AIY Vision kit too).”
