Introducing my Raspberry Pi robot Piro2

Tue Apr 25, 2017 8:02 am

Hi all!


Some of you may remember my original Piro robot from 2015 (viewtopic.php?f=37&t=118716). Sadly I had to abandon that robot when moving to a new apartment. However, since summer of 2016 I have been working on a new Raspberry Pi 3 -based robot, called (unsurprisingly) Piro2. I am using a 3D printer to build parts for my new robot, so it should look somewhat nicer. I am also focusing on speech input and output and artificial intelligence routines. I recently took a video of me testing the speech understanding around the verb "look", so I decided to post a topic here as well.

All software is running locally on the Raspberry Pi, so in that sense it really is a pure Raspberry Pi robot. You can get more information about both Piro and Piro2 from my web pages at (be sure to check the blog pages). The robot is still very much a work in progress (it has no arms yet, etc), just in case you are wondering if the image above is of the finished robot!

Thanks for your interest!

Now working on piro:
