One of the disappointments of being a competition or challenge organiser is that you can never take part in the competition you have created :-(
Now we have a number of other robots in the I Love Robots competition (go vote!!) I have removed A1DW's profile from the database.
I'm still working hard on integrating him into the Foster household. Most recently I have be working with some software built by fellow roboteer and 914 owner Chris Jones. In doing so I appear to have discovered some issues with A1DW's drop sensors, so I'm working to resolve these.
Here's another question for you - comments please!!
What would you like A1DW to be able to do?
You'll have to think a bit harder as he can already listen, respond to simple commands, speak, move around by himself, be controlled remotely (via IM, and soon IVR on a telephone).
And before you say vacuum the house, we have another robot - Rover - to do that. He is a iRobot Roomba.
If you start dreaming up a real selection of things for A1DW to do, why not put them altogether in your own blueprint and submit it to the I Love Robot competition.
I look forward to reading your suggestions and seeing blueprints!
