I’m a robotics engineer (currently working at Wandercraft, a French startup making a medical exoskeleton).
I’ve decided to build a robot as a side project, the goal is to make some kind of companion/pet like robot that can follow me in the street and be cute and funny!
I’ve never used ROS professionally so I’m using this project as a playground to learn it!
The project is progressing slowly but surely, I’m spending a lot of time documenting it, making youtube videos about my progress and explaining some stuff too!
You can find the playlist here (videos are in French, because I find there is a lack of content about robotics in French).
The source code is available here: https://gitlab.com/lokiledev/droid It’s still early in the project but I’ve already got a dummy urdf and a functional simulation in gazebo with several ros2 nodes for low level PID position control of the joints.
Hope you like it
