I received my nerve board kits. Thanks!
I see all the connectors are the same size, so does that mean that all the flat ribbon should be the same width, 7 pin?
You need some 14 wire ribbon for the connectors.
What I personnaly do, is buy some 30 wire ribbon and split it manually. It’s cheaper and easier to find on internet.
10 gauge automotive(black,red) will fit tightly in the XT60 connectors.
You can get some 12 gauge and will be fine for fitting as well.

Would you provide me the details on what kind of flat cables to buy and what type red/black wire to purchase.
For flat ribbons, I need to know the width and number of strands and length of cables.
For wire, I need to know what gauge wire to use for electric hookup.
I want to make sure I purchase the correct thing.
What gauge or MM thickness is this copper metal sheet?
I used some 0.20mm copper.
But the thickness of the copper doesn’t impact on the sensor itself.
Are the Copper sheets metal or tape or what kind of material is used here?
Sheet metal fixed with 2 components glue.
I found your video regarding this foam and copper sheets on youTube!
Do the MEGA or UNO boards need shields? Making a connection wire is a great idea.
I see I should have thought through the Wi-Fi decision a little more.
I have used Plantronics for 25 years while traveling as a consultant. Their devices are great. I never had an issue and never gave any thought to it not working well in quiet. I will check…[Read more]
The Mega Arduino use the Nervo Board as a shield.
I tried various headset with noise cancellation, another interesting fact I noticed, is that microphone noise cancellation removes the beginning and the end of the sentence.
This is okay if you say for example:
“How do you do today”, the “Ho” and “ay” will be removed.
But when you say only a…[Read more]
Which combination do you think is best? 1 regular + 1 infra red or 1 telephoto and 1 wide angle?
Hi Marcia, Sorry for delay in answering, been busy on other things. at the moment I have decided to have 1 regular and 1 infra red, but not chosen the infra red solution yet. What are you going with ?
A few questions:
1) Do I need to purchase SHEILDS for the Nano, Uno, or the Mega for this installation? I did not see the them listed in BOM.
2) It appears that the only board that has WI-FI is the Uno Wi-Fi. In checking the Mega, it does not appear to have Wi-Fi capabilities. At this point, I have purchased 2 MEGA, 2 UNO, 2 NANO, 2 UNO…[Read more]
1- If you’re questionning about the dedicated Nano for the NeoPixel ring, I do not add a shield, I just route the wires and solder them to the board. If you want you can make a connection wire for to disasemble.
2-You do not need wifi Arduino for the robot, if you follow the standard assembly. Your PC will have wifi and that is the only…[Read more]
I can not find any information about the finger pressure sensors. Could someone help me in the right direction. Where do I buy these or is this a simple coding that tells the fingers what to do after so much pressure is applied? I need some help understanding this.
You only need to purchase some static foam for the current pressure sensors. Static foam
MyRobotLab Manticore version is not implemented with configuration file to make usage of the finger sensors. You will need to add your own python codes in the Custom.py file.
See this thread in the…[Read more]
Hi Gael, WHICH Nano board should I purchase for this application? There seem to be more than one to choose from at Arduino.
Hello, this one:
Few more question today…
1) What is the PIR used for?
2) Do you buy NeoPixels in strips, singularly, or what?
Hi Marcia, the PIR to identify if someone is in front of your InMoov, but PIRs canhave different ranges up to 12 meters, depends on your choice if use.
Same with Kinect or Orbbec Astra (I think I will go with an Orbbec product)
On NeoPixel it is the ring but be careful on what size to get.
Use a 16 Neopixel ring from Adafruit or elsewhere.
Neopixel diagram & configuration
Another question, are you taking the CAMs out of there external containers and mounting them in the eye parts? Do you use one or two? Thanks again!
Hi Marcia, yes I found instructions on the web of how to remove the casing. Everyone appears to do something different. I am thinking two either 1 regular + 1 infra red or 1 telephoto and 1 wide angle
May I inquire about the finger sensors? What are they? They do not seem to appear on the BOM. where do you buy them? Could some provide more detail about this part? Thank You!
It is in one of the tutorials how to make them. It is not shop bought, from what I remember just two pieces of metal cut to size
I am trying to work through the BOM list. Can anyone give a detailed list of “Miscellaneous bolts” that might be required? Also clay anyone provide more detail about flat cables and wire? Are all the flat cables the same width or not? What kind of wire is used? solid or stranded? The help and insight is appreciated.
Also thank you…[Read more]
Hi Marcia, I started with M3 and M4 hex bolts and nuts, then when the need arose I got other ones, M2 for eyes I think. You end up with a nice collection of various lengths.
I think the flat cable is just 14 strand with one side marked red.
Thank you! Appreciate the response! I am sure I will have many questions.
Thank you very much. I realized today that the printer bed size is 12x12x12cm, when I thought it was inches. That makes a huge difference in printer size needed. Give me a different perspective.
Hi everyone, after much time reading about InMoov, I finally decided to start my InMoov project. Starting to purchase parts needed, etc. I have been watching 3D printer review videos for days. I would like to know what 3D Printer selection many of you have chosen to use to print parts? Thank you for the help!
I use Anet…[Read more]
Hi Marcia, Welcome and brilliant that you made the decision.
I use Wanhao D6 and a D6+ printing only in ABS.
Theres a great community to accompany you. Good Luck
