B-BOT is the project created and designed by an italian woman, Beatrice Rescazzi.
The aim of this project is to build a cheap robot helper for people in need.
B-BOT can carry objects, and will be a domotic station that can detect temperature, umidity, intrusions, and even gas leaks in the house. It will be controlled with light: so even an old person with motility problems or a child with a torch can drive it. If not driven, it will go to the most enlighted spot of the room and stop. Motors and sensors are driven by two different electronic systems so that the robot can check the house without moving, or, can move and entertain children without sensing the ambient.
B-BOT is already in the making, but needs contributes to go on in the development, as it's not originating from a robot company but from the efforts of a single resourceful person.
You can follow the development via this facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pages/B-BOT/354589401325036
Rewards are expecially custom 3D printed objects you can chose and receive home, doesn't matter where you live.
This robot is based on Arduino UNO electronics and will be totally open source once the project is finished. This means I will not copyright anything, but I will share the whole project so that everybody will be able to assemble and build B-BOT following the instructions.
Thank you for your support! :-)
