So after printing some parts for Valify I realized, first of all, it looked like any lawnmower out there. So I had to go back to the drawing board and start from scratch. I wanted a unique look that looked fresh and futuristic. I also took some experience from the previous one and made improvements. This is Valify V2.
Chassis and body are now separated. Body are is only a "nice" cover on top of the actually robot.
Some parts are still not ready
- Solarpanel holder for lid
Parts thats are user spefic are not included, this includes
- Motor mounts
Features I’m looking for:
1.No perimeter wire.
2.Different driving styles (diagonal cut, pattern cut etc..)
3.3D mapping. Creates a 3D map of the the garden.
4.Know exactly where the robot is in the garden.
5.Automatic raising of mower blades if they moves too Heavy (if to low height is set.)
6.Using a camera to recognize grasses and colors.
So with this wish list I came up with the following hardware specs for this build
Jetson TX2 Development Kit
Intel® RealSense™ Camera ZR300
2x DC Planetary Geared Motor 24 Volt med Hall IC 30-33 RPM 8mm
2x Vapex Li-Po Battery 6S 22.2V 4000mAh 25C XT60
RoboClaw 2x45A ST
Emlid Reach — RTK GNSS modules
(Mower motors for the blades I have not decided yet.)
-Working on Nose, Solar panel holder and some minor modification on some parts to minimize the need of support.
Updated parts: hjulhus hö, hjulhus vä. Replacement part hjulhus hö_1.1 and hjulhus vä_1.1. Update to minimize the need of support. saving 20h in total print time and around 500g filament (in my setup)
Updated parts hjulhus hö_1.1 and hjulhus vä_1.1. Added radius on corners to avoid to tension when printing.
Updated parts hjulhus hö_1.1 and hjulhus vä_1.1. Added a hatch for easier motor mounting. Hatch not yet uploaded. Also some minor bug fixes on support beams.
All models changes on a daily basis on my end and will not be uploaded directly.
This project is a Work-In-Progress.
Please download if you wish, but erors and bugs on bodies may be present.
I keep my ears or eyes open for useful feedback :-)
