Building an electromechanical robotic structure of wall-e
MetadataShow full item record
This project presents in detail an electrically operated mechanical robotic system based on an animated character of Pixar’s WALL-E (2008). The replica’s boxy physical structure is built using plywood mounted on top of track wheel which is a complex mechanical combination of parts like teethed wheel, metallic frames and some soft PVC wood casted shapes driven by 2 independent single shaft geared DC motor. The movements of the arms and neck are attained with the help of servo-motors. This sophisticated entertainment robot has features like its head pivots realistically; movement of different body parts, and also some supplementary enhancements incorporated such as giving WALL-E some vocal through audio system. The main focus of our work is developing a life-size meticulous Arduino-based entertainment robot entirely from custom-fabricated parts with distinctive features which can be controlled wirelessly, motivated from the animated character and as a constant reminder of how we should deal with our technologies without hampering the regular order of our personal and sociocultural life, we strived for building a life-size robotic structure of WALL-E to keep our conscience ever functional.
