WAVEGO, 12-DOF bionic dog-like robot, open source for ESP32 and PI4B, facial recognition, color tracking, motion detection
High-DOF bionic quadruped robot

Powered by ESP32 sub controller & Raspberry Pi 4B host controller

The WAVEGO is a high-DOF bionic dog-like robot which features 2.3kg.cm large torque servos, reliable structure, and flexible motion, incorporating devices like front camera, 9-axes motion tracker, RGB indicator, etc., together with open source multi-platform Web application. It uses the ESP32 as sub controller for connecting rod inverse solving and gait generation, sharing calculating task for the host controller, an additional Raspberry Pi can be attached as the host controller for high-level decision operating.

Product features
  • Overall 12-DOF, multi connecting rods leg design, increasing the servo effective torque
  • A real time operating system is used as sub controller for connecting rod inverse solving and gait generation, sharing calculating task for the host controller and improving the gait solving efficiency
  • Ultra compact structure design, allows using on the table, aluminum alloy + nylon structure materials, ensuring strength while keeping it light weight
  • Additional Raspberry Pi can beattached as the host controller to enable OpenCV high-level functions, demo codes including facial recognition, motion detection, color tracking, and more. Reserved extension interface for secondary development, along with user manual and secondary development documents.

More Powerful Processor, Richer Multi-Media Capability, Faster Networking

High-DOF, more flexible motion

Overall 12-DOF, multi connecting rods leg design + inverse kinematics algorithm,
significantly increasing the servo effective torque

Ultra compact structure design

5052 aluminum alloy and PA12 nylon structure materials, 40 sets of bearing joint all over the body,
rugged and reliable structure, ensuring strength while keeping it light weight

Self-balancing posture

Embedded high precision 9-axes motion tracker ICM20948
Accommodating To Different Terrains, keeping the camera stable by self-balancing

5MP 160° wide angle camera*

allows using OpenCV-based functions like facial recognition, color tracking, motion detection, and more

facial recognition

color tracking

* the 5MP camera is only included in WAVEGO EX and PI4 KIT.
Remote control via Web

auto-generated WiFi Hotspot on startup, needs no compiling environment configuration,
allows connecting to and login the control page via smartphone or PC browser, without installing app

Developing high-level functions

an Raspberry Pi can be attached as host controller to communicate with the sub controller via UART,
the ESP32 sub controller will share lots of calculating task like connecting rod inverse solving and gait generation, retaining more Raspberry Pi performance for developing high-level functions
