Let's Make Robots!

HeinyBot 2.0 Robotic Waiter

Serves beer cans (or any other can).

HeinyBot 2.0, robot waiter in process of construction 100%. Four modes of operation provided. Manual, Static Waiter, Dynamic Waiter and Presentation. In manual mode using the remote control presented in this forum, section Something else. I promise more videos.

Beeeeerrrrrr...... Nice bearbot! Like the way you put everything all together.

So many axis and such a precision... This robot is something to go for. Collected!

Can you tell a bit more about the eye movement and the mechanics behind it?

Just found how you make it. Thanx for sharing.

As soon as I saw this one I thought what a great little character. You've managed to build a lot of personality into what is essentially some beer cans. Lol. Then I watched the video and saw how much work you put into his actions. Much respect.

Could you possibly add a little extra documentation about his construction. That would be nice if you could. Great work.

i love how it opens up and and can reach in side and the way it wakes up and comes to life . 10 points for the use of the mini keg and cans


Wow! What can I say?... Respect, man! Well done.

WOW, that is just completely amazing.  I am stunned at how many cool things this robot can to.  It's like watching a Swiss watch in action.  Congratulations, its fantastic, thanks for showing it to us.

Wow! That's inspiring.Also, I need a beer now.



Hello to all colleagues! I'm glad you like it, your comments give me encouragement to continue working on projects as laborious like this because I have more than one year with him and still not finished at all. As I said before this is the manual mode of operation and are not yet finished the other modes. I can comment about the electronics which consists of a set of boards designed for each project and other purchased. The main microcontroller is 18F452 and is where does the main program. For the management of the servos I used a card designed by a friend of mine and also used in my previous SAM-H project (which you can see also in LMR).This card uses a 18F4550 and is capable of handling up to 24 servos by UART. All movements are recorded in memory of 512K with a software for this card and of course, is a free download on its website. The third pic I've used in the slave board created specifically to manage communications between the XBee and master pic. Is a 16F877A and communicates with the XBee by UART and the master pic through an 8-bit bus. It also performs signaling functions of the mode of operation. To communicate with the bot use a PS2 controller to which I have changed all the electronics for using an XBee. This remote control is here in LMR. 

Greetings and sorry for my English.   ;-)


WOW! Al those different movements gives him a nice personality

Great robot! You should check this out to keep the drink cold.http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/accessories/96b3/
