Press to mark as completed

FRED is a prototype full size robot designed to be a home helper specifically aimed at  the elderly.  In its final form, FRED will be able to perform rudimentary communication and will perform tasks using voice commands.  FRED will use a modified "Reachy" arm to grasp objects and then will take the object to the person as requested.  Currently, the mechanical system is 90% complete and FRED can run ROS 1 some simple navigation. Voice command is not yet active. The arm is not yet attached to the body.  The plan is to have FRED be open source and allow others to contribute to the design and development.
