I’ve started a full ROS project for the true automation of an R2-D2 unit.
We’ve purchased a licensed replica from Side Show but I want to hack it into a full functional screen accurate robot.
We have a complete set of 1:1 scale blueprints from the original film production.
We also have purchased and laser-scanned an original dome, radar eye, and holoprojectors.
Through Q4 we will be creating accurate mesh files for use in simulation in RVIZ and Gazebo.
