    Hi there, after a long time I waked up my inMoov build 😉
    All parts except the head a reprinted again, with 0.1mm layers and 40% infill. Everything fits without any sanding or drilling, easy fit! How: just good printer calibration!

    In this video Part 3 of Fred\’s Brain, we continue looking at MyRobotLab and how we use the services to setup and control Fred.

    • I really enjoy watching your videos Ray. The way you explain things is great. However I have a confession. I have gone over to the “dark side” that is ARC. I am now running EZ-B controllers and find the ARC software much more intuitive and simpler to work with. I have modified the Nervo Board to suit the new setup.
      Keep up the good work. Warren

      • In the world of robotics, there is no dark side, unless you plan to have your robots destroy other robots ect.
        There is only different 🙂

        In any case, keep on building and posting your progress 🙂

        • He won’t be destroying other robots. His main role is to teach my students about Robotics and AI. His secondary role will be to help teach kids sign language. The second part is not proving straightforward but, I enjoy a challenge. 😉

          • I do remember seeing another design of hand created for the Inmoov robot by a builder that allowed side to side motion of some of the fingers.
            It was posted on Thingiverse.
            It does require more servos 🙂

    • Hi. Which version of MRL are you running. I am not sure if it is the same on older versions but, on the latest version the mic turns of of a few minutes without speech ( to reduce false commands I presume) you have to click on the mic icon then speak. Hope that helps. Warren

    • Starting with MRL_Nixie, the WebKitSpeechRecognition allows for a wake work that can be used to restart the Speech Recognition.
      That would be a feature in Inmoov2.
      Wake words are not supported in the Manticore version.

    Part two of Fred\’s Brain.
    In this video we look at the Servo Service in MyRobotLab and how we set them up on our robots.
    Fred has quite a number of servos, and once the arms and hands are attached, there will be a lot more 🙂

    • Great video Ray. I wish I was as confident at writing code.


      • Keep in mind, I’ve been playing with this for 6 years now 🙂

    Making decent progress. All neck and head servos fitted fitted and tested (just a basic arduino code) as still trying to get my head around mrl. Not using kinect so fired up Fusion 360 and then printed a new bottom chest. Is it just me or does anyone else find mrl tricky ?

    • It can seem like it at first, until you get to understand how it works.
      Most of MRL is based around services, you can write scripts to start and configure service and then link services together.
      I have an all python example of writing a program within the MRL system to run an Inmoov robot.
      You are welcome to have a look at it.

    I started a few days ago with myrobotlab and InMoov. First I built the finger starter, which works fine manual control of the servo in myrobotlab righthand/indexfinger. Now I am looking for a way how I can invoke a gesture like openHand without speechcontrol. Has anyone suggestions?

    • One of the programs started by the Inmoov program in MRL is Program AB.
      In Inmoov its called i01.chatbot
      If you open that tab, you can type you commands in there
      It’s like talking to your bot with your fingers 🙂

    Hello everyone,
    me again. I’m looking now at which power supply I need to take. The hardware map says that a 6v 60amps power supply is currently used, while it is also offered that 50 amps can be used. Now my question is which is better and whether 60amps will damage the whole electronics or it is only important what is the output voltage and…[Read more]

    • That Amps rating is the Maximum the Power Supply Unit (PSU) can supply, the voltage is the one that can blow things up.
      You want the 6V output, most of the gear used in an Inmoov will tolerate a 6V supply, most don’t like going too low.
      If you try and draw more than the PSU’s maximum current, the output voltage will drop, and all the electronics…[Read more]

      • Ray, thanks a lot for the nice explanation.

        • It helps to be an Electrician when looking at things like Power 🙂
          Voltage drop is something that is not well understood by most builders, or a lot of electricians as well 🙂
          I did have my Inmoov Fred try to explain it:

    I have a question regarding the braided fishing line. Namely, wherever I look, there is no exact size of 0.8 mm and it is 200 lb, will it create problems if the dimensions are 0.75 mm and that it is 200 lb?
    Thank you in advance

    • The major consideration is the ability to handle the tension applied.
      When you consider the pulling force required, it is quite understandable.
      The diameter is not anywhere near as important.
      as ling as you can feed it through a 2mm hole and the line will hold 200lb or 90Kg, then you should be all good.

      • Modding also makes you go further in to the learning of how things work 🙂
        Good news is there are a lot of Inmoov builders that bring knowledge to the group so we can all learn.
