Solidworks render of Gwai
Gwai in his final form
Wanted to make a friendly, fun looking robot.
What it does
Looks at and interacts with people around him.
How we built it
Designed the body, head, and mechanical components in solidworks which were then 3d printed. Coded...
Challenges we ran into
Two mechanical engineers trying to code. 3d printer issues
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting some sort of code to do a thing
What we learned
We cannot code (Jeremy is clearly better at it though)
What's next for Gwai
Upgraded head gimbal, possible facial recognition instead of detection, LEDs
