Introducing IronBoy - a hackable humanoid robot designed to be compatible with Arduino eco-system, making it an ideal and cost-effective development platform for makers, hobbyists and educators. The IronBoy utilises IRduino controller, which is based on Arduino Leonardo, for execution of user's program. The IRduino is fully compatible with Arduino IDE and is designed with Arduino footprint, so that user can easily extend the functionality of the robot using existing shields and off-the-shelf devices.
IronBoy comes with a powerful 16-bits robot controller with 24 available servo channels and large memory capacity for storage of up to 200 motions. A specialized interrupt driven firmware is used to handle motion and remote controls on demand. It features advance sensors such as Gyro and accelerometer for walk stabilisation. The onboard Bluetooth BLE allows for control of IronBoy via a computer or tablet.
Equipped with 16 high performance servo motors and light-weight, high-strength aluminium frames, the IronBoy is capable of performing various demanding movements. Each of the servo motors is protected from overload and has a 32-bits embedded processor that allows for advanced control of the servo. Various poses or motions can be created and playback via the included Total Manager software.
We have also created an Arduino library to allow the user to quickly bring the robot to life without having an in-depth knowledge of the lower level functions that make the robot moves and walks.
