ERWHI is an open source small SLAM robot. It integrates some human interaction features and machine learning capabilities.
It works on ROS on an Odroid XU4 and Intel Realsense R200 as vision sensor.
Motors are controlled by uNav and uuBridge (a custome uBridge).
To achieve a perfect dynamics study, a special node was created using STM32-Nucleo and MPU9250.
uuBridge is a custom motor bridge due original uBridge for uNav as an incompatible voltage (it works over 8V and ERWHI motors are powered at +5V).
The prototype works on DVR8833 by Texa Instruments.
In the near future I migrate to STM STSPIN240.
I shaped a custom encoder kit adapting AMS AS5134 hall effect rotary encoder to Pololu 1000:1 microgearmotors.
You have ABI output and PWM output. Also programming port is exposed.
It simply use a STM32 Nucleo F303 board and an Invense MPU9250 to calculate robot dynamics.
Officine Robotiche is a no-profit association based in Rome about robotic buildings and competitions.
Neapolis Innovation is an association founded by some factories, e.g. STMicroelectronics, and Universities in Campania (Italy).
KATODO is a friendly eCommerce website. You can find every stuffs you need to build your own robot.
Geduino is a project by Alessandro Francescon.
Alessandro donated a broken lidar to be mounted and tested on ERWHI.
The team in the PRISMA Lab (Projects of Robotics for Industry and Services, Mechatronics and Automation) operates in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of University of Naples Federico II and Consortium CREATE, where since 30 years is committed to research in robotics and automation.
