What is PiMecha?
PiMecha is a miniature Humanoid robot. Its core is the Raspberry Pi and it moves around with precise smart bus servo motors. PiMecha is versatile, upgradeable and customizable with various parts, sensors, and cameras.
This variant comes with a Raspberry Pi camera mounted at the head and a 4" LCD display screen attached to the chest.
With its advanced smart bus servo motors, PiMecha can execute very precise and versatile movements. With its 17 degrees of freedom and an efficient communication shield, PiMecha is able to execute any command almost instantly.
- PiMecha includes one head, one main body, two arms, two legs, use 17pcs smart control Bus Servo.
- PiMecha can do multiple movements like walking, squat, turning, side slide movements, and could dancing, fighting, or more.
- PiMecha can feedback itself position, it is easy to programming robot motion with the free software.
- The open-source code is available for secondary development.
- Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 3B+ and Pi 4 Model B.
Control using Wireless Joystick
The PiMecha can be controlled via a wireless joystick to give you more room towards the endless opportunities. You can take PiMecha to your robotics competitions and play with your best buddy using the joystick control and the software handling.
Serial Bus Servo Motor
The serial bus servo holds the base of the humanoid. They are responsible for the torque and the movements in PiMecha. It has the high-precision potentiometer and full metal gear as its key features.
PiMecha Servo Configuration Software
The configuration software is designed to configure the servo motors. The servo torque, deviation, angle, temperature etc parameters can be controlled using this software. The default parameters can be updated according to the requirements anytime.
