Sorry about that Mike! I believe it's actually a Canadian project since they quoted the prices in Canadian Dollars but they're using UK to host the site for the project

Mike,

This project looks interesting and looks like the folks are from your side of the pond.

You can download and read the final report, in PDF format, where they even included a list of parts with the prices!

How can you tell it is from over here?

Hi Robert

Luigi is very entertaining. I can't wait for Ismenio to post the video.

How is the Tasc going? I hope you are not going to let it beat up our new plaything?

All the best
Mike

I found more details about the Lego Robot project.

What I liked about this project is that you can actually speak your moves to the robot!

This is link to the PDF file (English), with pictures.

Here is an excerpt from the doc that I found interesting:


3.1 Playing Chess

The first talking robot we present plays chess against the user (Fig. 3). It moves chess pieces on a board by means of a magnetic arm, which it can move up and down in order to grab and release a piece, and can place the arm under a certain position by driving back and forth on wheels, and to the right and left on a gear rod.
The dialogue between the human player and the robot is centred around the chess game: The human speaks the move he wants to make, and the robot confirms the intended move, and announces check and checkmate. In order to perform the moves for the robot, the dialogue manager connects to a specialised client which encapsulates the GNU Chess system.5 In addition to computing the moves that the robot will perform, the chess programme is also used in disambiguating elliptical player inputs.

Figure 4 shows the part of the chess dialogue model that accepts a move as a spoken command from the player. The Input node near the top waits for the speech recognition client to report that it understood a player utterance as a command. An excerpt from the recogniser grammar is shown in Fig. 5: The grammar is a context-free grammar in JSGF format, whose production rules are annotated with tags (in curly brackets) representing a very shallow semantics. The tags for all production rules used in a parse tree are collected into a table.

The dialogue manager then branches depending on the type of the command given by the user. If the command specified the piece and target square, e.g. “move the pawn to e4”, the recogniser will return a representation like
{piece="pawn"
colTo="e" rowTo="4"}, and the dialogue will continue in the centre branch. The user can also specify the source and target square.


Sample of the chess grammar:
<cmd> = [<move>] <piece> <to> <squareTo>
| ...
<squareTo> = <colTo> <rowTo>
<colTo> = [a wie] anton {colTo:a} |
[b wie] berta {colTo:b} | ...
<rowTo> = eins {rowTo:1} |
zwei {rowTo:2} | ...

OK, looks like I can't let this subject die! (I DO need help!!!)

These folks were able to overcome a problem a team from India was having: the different sizes for the pieces made it really hard for the robotic arm to handle them properly.

I'm just fascinated about them Dick! But I need help!
Someone has to stop me before I go crazy and buy one of these

Here's another one that Bernhard may know about:

I liked this one because it works like the Phantoms and uses the Lego Mindstorms!

This one is from Portugal. But I don't believe it's for sale.



Wow!!    I refuse to play a chess computer that is larger and stronger than I am.  What if it gets angry at me?

Where do you keep finding this great stuff, Ismenio?
