    Hi everyone.
    I’m new in this community.
    Since I was a young boy I always dreamed of building a robot for my own. I wanted it to look humanoid and gave him the name OTTO. Now, some decades later, I only had a motorized lego hand with pneumatics to show off.
    And then, some 4 month ago, I read about your project InMoov. I was fascinated at once.
    Now…[Read more]

    I recently got a new toy.
    I don\’t normally post unboxings in here, but this is so handy when setting up your servos.

    This servo tester is great for positioning servos and testing the range before connecting the servos to the servo drivers and fire up MRL.
    I also opened this one up to see what was inside it.

    I HAVE A WHOLE TUB FULL OF PARTS AND WILL BEGIN THE BUILD SOON! There have been a lot of new versions and updated builds. It takes a fair amount of research to get to a place where Im confident to start. also trying to purchase as much as I can before I retire this next spring while my budget is a little stronger. Mainly rolls of filament. Here we go…

    • Don’t forget to have fun while you build 🙂
      If you run into issues, then don’t forget to ask the community, A lot of us have already gone through the same build process and can now help others 🙂
      There are a lot of strong communities of Inmoov builders, all over the world, starting with this one 🙂

    When your building a robot, sometimes, you need to sense a signal or a voltage that is well over the rating of your input.
    This is not a real problem, because you can use a voltage divider to drop the voltage down a proportional amount.

    Fred’s Brain Part 5
    Fred is a non-standard Inmoov.
    The head in particular has a number of modifications, starting with the Advanced Eyes from Dakota76 and the Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi Spy Camera mounted in one of Fred’s eye’s.
    The other major difference, is in the way I control the servos, using the PCA9685 I2C 16 channel…[Read more]

    Fred\’s Right Shoulder Part 4.

    I released this a few weeks ago and for got to post it here.
    The shoulders in Fred are standard, latest version from this site.
    The new ball bearing setup are much smoother.

  • Bonjour, j\’arrive pas à installer le driver pour les clone arduino CH340 avez-vous une procédure pour rasberry pi (Buster) Merci d\’avance

    • The driver comes installed as standard on the Raspbian OS.
      Either your OS has been corrupted, in which case you might be better off restoring a backup or making a fresh install.
      The USB chip on your Arduino Clone is bad 🙁

      • Thanks Rey Edgley,
        I found in the mayrobotlab startup that it was necessary to put /dev/ ttyUSB0 and the mine is working with /dev/ttyAcm0.

        Another problem with Raspberry the camera is not visible in OpenCV can you give me an advice or an installation procedure…. Thanks

    Can you help me to find a motorized version of the legs?

      The closest I have seen was by John Stager, His robot legs did walk, but were not stable enough for him to risk attaching his Inmoov robot to 🙂

    I also mount the shoulder assembly onto Fred\’s upper torso and set the feed back pot position.

    • The last 4 pins on the Nervo board are pointing the wrong way.
      Those pins are used to connect to an Arduino Nano to run the NeoPixel ring.

    • The next 9 pins are also pointing the wrong way, they a spare un-defined pins, mostly connected to the serial pins on the Arduino Mega 2560.

    • 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 🙂

  • Warren posted an update 3 months, 1 week ago

    • 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.

    • Seems like there was a buffer overflow – will follow up later

  • I needed to know what the battery voltage was and also had some issues with the MPU6050 running with the Raspiberry Pi 4.
    To I added one to the I2C port on the Arduino Nano.

    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.

    Can I start by saying a huge thank you to Gael for this amazing project. I teach engineering and I am building InMoov with my second year students as a robotics teaching aid. I know we have joined the party late so the printer is currently running flat out producing parts. Will post some update pictures soon. Thanks Warren

  • Guenther posted an update 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    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 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.
