I decided to stop my previous project, the ROSbonova, almost a year ago now as I decided it wouldn’t be able to deliver what I am looking for. Since then I have gathered parts and saved up some money to build a “HR-OS5¬†General Grievous”¬†clone.

I had some difficulties getting the subdomain settings right for the blog and the wiki, and I have some other minor things that I want to fix before I’m satisfied with the setup, but I’ll I aim to start working on the robot and sharing the progress here in the blog.

I’ve already got most of the mechanical parts assembled, I’m missing some servos before it is complete. The idea is to write a small application to control each servo individual to find max, min and center limits. Then I might do the same with ROS integrated, making two small and easy tutorials for Dynamixel and ROS.
