Actuators for waifu movement! Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:27:47 No.406 [Reply] [Last]
Hello fellow Anons! Kiwi here to provide basic educational facts about various actuators we can use for gifting artificial avatars of our hearts desire motion!

1. Let's start with a personal favorite, the impractical, inefficient yet oh so fascinating: Heated Twisted Nylon!

What are they? They're nylon threads which have been spun around then annealed to seal in their coils. A heating method causes these threads to then contract or expand.

Good: Why is this a personal favorite? Simply put, it's natures muscle substitute for muscles. To elaborate, this marvelous invention contracts like human muscles, has a similar practical strength/weight/volume as human muscle. Icing on this proverbial cake comes in its incredibly low cost of manufacture. Materials needed are nylon threads and a heating element. A fixture for production can be produced simply, operated with incredible ease, all while having a low cost. It very well could have revolutionized all of robotics if it weren't for its flaws.

Bad: This is honestly a terrible actuator. Its greatest flaw comes from its speed. they aren't as fast as human muscles unless they're underwater. Water reduces efficiency to unacceptable levels if they're powered by batteries. Water is also rather heavy. If used, you'd have a waifu that moved slowly , would seize up in hot weather, and her battery would die rather quickly. Final nail in the coffin: it's very difficult to get positional control.

2: Pneumatics, moving her booty with air!
What is it? Pressurized air is guided to an actuator where its energy turns into motion. Popular air actuators include rotary turbines, cylinders, and air muscles.

Good: Actuators are light for their power. Positional control isn't difficult to attain. They can be faster then human muscles. Heating elements can be used to augment performance to higher levels.

Bad: These things require electrical actuators to function properly. Thus, they're inherently more complex then electrical counterparts. They need a source of compressed air, either from a tank or a compressor and a tank. Compressors are large, heavy, noisy, all around unsuitable to be incorporated into a waifu. Air tanks would also run out rapidly unless she's barely moving. Overall, they're suited better for industrial use.

3. Hydraulics, they're like pneumatics except stronger, needs a return system, needs an onboard pump, gets hotter, generally costs more, and is heavier.
(2 and 3 are great for stationary machinery which requires high power as they're very cost effective as high power actuators)

4. AC motors
What are they? They're rotary devices which use AC current to create magnetic flux used to provide torque.

Good: Generally highly efficient with good thermal characteristics. Can have controllable speed and torque.

Bad: They run off of AC electricity, batteries don't provide that. It's not difficult to change DC to AC but, it's a layer of extra cost and complexity. Overall they're great but the next actuator is better suited for our purpose.

5: DC motors are the ideal actuator for smaller waifus.
What are they? They're actuators which convert DC electricity into rotary mechanical energy.

Good: They're inexpensive, easily attainable, and simple to control. They're very easy to control. Uses DC which batteries provide.

Bad: Need to be geared down to provide good torque. They're middle of the road efficiency wise.

(For smaller waifus, their lower efficiency compared to the next actuator isn't a major concern. Smaller batteries recharge rapidly, so having her need to charge in her bed isn't a big deal.)

6. Superior Brushless Motors are ideal actuators
What are they? DC motors which need specialty hardware to drive them.

Good: High efficiency, it's the most efficient option available.

Bad: Controllers add expense and complexity.

This is a thread to discuss smaller waifu building problems, solutions, proposals and questions that don't warrant a thread. Keep it technical. I'll start.

Liquid battery and cooling in one
Having a single "artificial blood" system for liquid cooling and power storage would eliminate the need for a vulnerable solid state battery, eliminate the need for a separate cooling system, and solve the problem of extending those systems to extremities.
I have heard of flow batteries, you'd just need to use a pair of liquids that's safe enough and not too sensitive to changes in temperature.
This one looks like it fits the bill. The downside is that your waifu would essentially be running on herbicide. (though from what I gather, it's in soluble salt form and thus less dangerous than the usual variety)
https://www.seas.harvard.edu/news/2017/02/long-lasting-flow-battery-could-run-for-more-than-decade-with-minimum-upkeep

How close are we to creating artificial muscles? And what's the second best option?
Muscles are perfect at what they do; they're powerful, compact, efficient, they carry their own weight, they aren't dependent on remote parts of the system, they can be controlled precisely, and they can perform many roles depending on their layout alone.
We could grow actual organic muscles for this purpose already but that's just fucking gross, and you'd need a lot of extra bloat to maintain them.
What we need are strands of whatever that can contract using electrical energy. Piezo does the trick at small scales, but would it be enough to match the real thing? There have been attempts, but nothing concrete so far.
What are some examples of technology that one could currently use instead?

High level and low level intelligence emulation
I've noticed a pattern in programs that emulate other computing hardware.
The first emulators that do the job at acceptable speeds are always the ones that use hacks and shortcuts to get the job done.
It comes down to a tradeoff. Analyzing and recompiling or reinterpreting the code itself on a more abstract level will introduce errors, but it is a magnitude of order more efficient than simulating every part of the circuitry down to each cycle. This is why a relatively high level emulator of a 6th gen video game console has close system requirements to a cycle-accurate emulator of the SNES.
Now, I want to present an analogy here. If training neural networks for every damn thing and trying to blindly replicate an organic system is akin to accurately emulating every logic gate in a circuit, what are some shortcuts we could take?
It is commonly repeated that a human brain has immense computing power, but this assumption is based just on the amount of neurons observed, and it's likely that most of them probably have nothing to do with intelligence or consciousness. If we trim those, the estimated computing power would drop to a more reasonable level. In addition, our computers just aren't built for doing things like neural systems do. They're better at some things, and worse at others. If we can do something in a digital way instead of trying to simulate an analog circuit doing the same thing, that's more computing power that we could save, possibly bridging the gap way earlier than we expected to.
The most obvious way to handle this would be doing as many mundane processing and hardware control tasks as possible in an optimized, digital way, and then using a GPU or another kind of circuit altogether to handle the magical "frontal lobe" part, so to speak.

Not sure if we can use that for anything, but it's fascinating: https://youtu.be/LU77kPf25Yg - a expanding pulley. He also mentioned a old book, where he has it from. It's free: https://books.google.es/books?id=MWlRAQAAMAAJ&newbks=0&redir_esc=y (pdf uploaded, epub format not bc server doesn't allo it) He says it's basically a cam and roller mechanism, which converts rotary motion to linear motion, but a special one. These mechanisms are also interesting by themselves, and its good to know about them. Also, this window mechanism might be usefull: https://youtu.be/IgZDlnpTFVw - or something similar inspired by it (muscle? rolling it up?)

>>8728 Interesting book, thanks. I could see this double-wishbone universal joint being useful for transferring rotary motion down a limb across a joint boundary. For example rotating a wrist-joint remotely, across the elbow-joint boundary. > p26
Open file (81.96 KB 236x184 ClipboardImage.png)
>>8728 BTW, I just had a humorous idea from this design notion. If we're going to be able to rotate a wrist via a drive rod in this fashion, who say we have to stop with the rotational limits of the normal human arm? >eg >>7719 >Tibia and Fibula Why can't we have unlimited rotation of the wrist? Just lock the grip off (onto a handle, say) and then just start rotating like a slow-turn drill (just like in my space movies). Ofc this would only work for fully self-contained hand actuators, but the idea is pretty interesting.
>>8730 Depends on how human-like she is supposed to be. Won't work with seamless skin. Also, this would require that one thing I want to try out is going to work: Not using cables to connect the limbs, but creating bones that can run current and always touch each other, but also won't short out. Information would then need to be transmitted via light signals, from limb to limb.
>>8732 >Won't work with seamless skin. Agreed. But one thing most of us here seem to approve of generally is not trying to be too realistic with our robowaifu's designs at this stage. cf, the idea of serviceable 'eye assemblies' that Anons discussed. >>4355 You can even weave the look aesthetic into the waifu's design itself, kind of like was discussed about Sophie-bot. >>8392 >"...maybe a couple robowaifu-aesthetic half cups..."

Artificial Wombs general Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 03:11:54 No.157 [Reply] [Last]
I think we need to figure out how to fit a womb onto a waifubot. Where's the fun in having sex if you can't procreate?

Repost from a thread on /b/;
>"If you're like me and want to fuck a qt battlebot and get her pregnant, the best place to put an artificial womb is where a normal womb would be on a normal girl. The metal exterior could simply be a bunch of metal plates that unfold to allow space for the womb pod inside. The baby is probably safest inside the battlebot, and if she has good calibration then there shouldn't be problems with her falling and hurting the baby. After giving birth the metal plates could automatically fold back up again, shrinking the womb pod inside so she is combat effective again."

Well /robowaifu/? Feasible?

Bipedal Robot Locomotion General Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 05:57:42 No.237 [Reply] [Last]
We need to talk about bipedal locomotion. It's a complicated topic but one that has to be solved if we are ever to have satisfyingly believable robowaifus. There has surely already been a lot of research done on this topic, and we need to start digging and find the info that's out there. There are some projects that have at least partial robolegs solutions working, but none that I know of that look very realistic yet. We likely won't come up with some master-stroke of genius and solve everyone's problems here on /robowaifu/, but we should at least take a whack at it who knows? We certainly can't accomplish anything if we don't try.

I personally believe we should be keeping the weight out of the extremities – including the legs – while other anons think that we should add weight to the feet for balance. What's you're ideas anon? How do we control the gait? How do we adjust for different conditions? What if our robowaifu is carrying things? What about the legs during sex? Should we focus on the maths behind MIP (Mobile Inverted Pendulum), or is there a different approach that would be more straightforward? A mixture? Maybe we can even do weird stuff like reverse-knee legs that so many animals have. Robofaun waifu anyone? What about having something like heelys or bigger wheels in the feet as well?

I'm pretty sure if we just put our heads together and don't stop trying, we'll eventually arrive at least one good general solution to the problem of creating bipedal robot legs.

That anon's exact design would need some modification.

I'd like to have a place to accumulate video links to various humanoid – particularly gynoid – robotics projects are out there. Whether they are commercial scale or small scale projects, if they involve humanoid robots post them here. Bonus points if it's the work of a lone genius.

I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project. I think it's pretty impressive even if it can't walk yet.

Maybe LBRY is, maybe it'll be someone else. Regardless, we need to save everything of any value to us here as we prepare for the deplatforming that is coming for us.

I want to use motors for some muscles, soft muscles for others. I also thought about using springs or bumbers to make certain repetitive movements using low amounts of energy. Currently I dont know how to insert a bit of randomness there. The body should go down automatically if relaxed, and bumbing back if the spring is unlocked. I'll need a mechanism to change the traits of the spring, probably some mechanism that blocks it gradually. >>8656 Yes, seems to be the way.

Since we have no thread for hands, I'm now opening one. Aside the AI, it might be the most difficult thing to archive. For now, we could at least collect and discuss some ideas about it. There's Will Cogleys channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/WillCogley - he's on his way to build a motor driven biomimetic hand. It's for humans eventually, so not much space for sensors right now, which can't be wired to humans anyways. He knows a lot about hands and we might be able to learn from it, and build something (even much smaller) for our waifus.

We'll have to come up with some very small GelSight-like sensors.

This can be relevant to some degree. However, the constraints are different. We might have more space in the forearms, but we want marvelous sensors in the hands and have to connect them to the body.

>>8630 I was thinking that maybe the right approach would be freenet-esque. Distribute the data(read: parameters) and the computing power required between all users. This method, with correct rearrangement, might actually work with the t5 model, since the basis of the MoE is to create many single components with many parameters, have them all compute in parallel and combine them together. Ideally, we might create a ton of experts and scatter them around the network of users. If we really live in dreamland, then maybe t5 didn't even use PET and we could make it mesh together and that would make our lives easier. Then again, this is all speculation and most probably won't mean anything
>>8647 I personally think this idea is very nice. Ideally, our system would be something similar in the implementation: this way, we can spread this around the board and have other guys who maybe want to help but don't have the necessary skills yet to provide with something crucial, while the more skilled people who are doing research can use their own computational power to keep advancing things further and further.

Thoughts on waifus which remain 2D but have their own dedicated hardware. This is more on the artistry side though ai is still involved. An example of an actual waifu product being the Gatebox.
gatebox.ai/sp/

My favorite example is Ritsu, she's a cute ai from assassination classroom who's body is a giant screen on wheels.

>>8377 Thanks Anon, Yeah I'd say this or the Waifu Simulator >>155 thread are both good choices for animation topics until we establish a specific thread on that.
So, we definitely want our robowaifu's ai to be able to travel around with us, whether she's wearing her physical robo-form, or more lightweight in her non-atoms version. Securing/protecting her physical shell is pretty common-sense , but how do we protect her from assault when she's virtual. Specifically, how do we protect her properly when she's on our phones/tablets/whatever when we're away from the privacy of our own home networks?
>>8592 The obvious solution is to do what the Gatebox device in the OP does and keep the device that the AI runs on at home and interact with the user through text messages or phone calls when the user is outside. All the AI assistants from major tech companies work on this principle through edge gateways keeping the important parts of the AI secure in cloud computing. Not only is the way they process user data a valuable trade secret but so is the data itself which is why they spend so much on developing virtual assistants. If you really wanted it to be secure you'd have several instances of it running on different types of hardware in several locations. Any compromises could be quickly detected and dealt with.
>>8593 I understand (well, sort of anyway heh). That seems like a pretty good idea just to rely on simple text messages for communicating with her 'back home'. Simple text should be easier to secure, and much easier to inspect for problems. I suppose we can build her virtual, traveling avatar to display/render locally correctly using just text messages back & forth. Shouldn't be too difficult to figure out how, once we have the other pieces in place. Thanks for the advice Anon!
>>1124 >I'm currently in the middle of a project where I'm gutting a street car, putting in an engine that is entirely too big for it, racing seats, new ECU, and basically building a street legal race car. Anon if you're still here, what the heck is going on with your project? We need our Racewaifus!
