Wall-E Toy Robot Mod Adds Voice Recognition & Proximity Sensors

by Lambert Varias

Adriá García of DIYMakers augmented a Wall-E toy by making it work with voice commands and giving it the means to move on its own and avoid obstacles. It doesn’t compact garbage or collect curios, but at least it can dance.

Adriá used an Arduino Uno as Wall-E’s new brain. Two infrared proximity sensors help the toy detect obstacles, actuators move its arms and head and two continuous servo motors power its tracks. Adriá used the EasyVR module for voice recognition.

AUTO, navigate to DIYMakers for more details on Adriá’s mod.
