'[OT]: Robo-Dogs and Motor Control'

Anyone wanting a non-piddler christmas pet might be intersted
in the $2500/$1400 Aibo Robo-Dog from Sony:

http://www.aibo.com/

Alternatively, there is the $39.95 Tekno-Robodog. The schematic
of the dog's brain is rather simple, and may be of interest to
those wanting to connect motors to a uC:

Hmm..must have based on my dogs brain if it's that simple.  And he takes

Well, as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Grey Walter got
his 1940 tortoises to perform pretty sophiticated behavior using
only one flip-flop neuron, so today's units should do a little
better:

Interesting thing about the Tekno-RoboDog is, it has some kind of
builtin programmability and "learning" behavior. Looks like
you have to have one to be able to log onto the part of the
website that talks about this, however.

The motor controller schematic does look like a pretty
"classical" microcontroller ckt to me.

interesting approach to use microphone as light sensor ;)

No doubt a typographic error.

Even more interesting, the dog's "voice" is made by simply
pulsing a BJT - looks like 4.5v hard into the base - to
direct drive a speaker -[shades of the IBM PC].

And it even has a clock chip. Why does a $39 plastic dog need
to tell the time? Hmmmm - wake up - it's 2AM and I wanna go
for a walk.

Still, all in all, I love the ckt - for its "minimalism".
