Humoid robot

I have started to develop a humiod robot that is designed to interact with people around it. I will demo it at a robotics comp hosted at my local university.

See a quick demo of the robot here Robot head - YouTube

ATM the the robot only has a head with micro hobby servos to control the eyes and dynamixel servos to control the neck. It uses @dusty_nv trt_pose to do pose estimation so the robot will look at the person closest in front of it that is looking back at the robot. It uses a cascaded control loop where the eyes are on a feed back loop from the pose estimation then the neck is in on a control loop to try to make the eyes be centered in the head, this creates a very human like motion.

I still want to add ASR to NLP to TTS to get the robot to be able to do Q and A
