MAXX is an interesting example of what could be done with a Personal Robot. MAXX also had an Expansion port on his chest. The prototype cartridges contains a 2K ROM that runs MAXX through a demonstration. There is a Serial Port on Controller Expansion Interface Port on Maxx in chest compartment.
Microprocessor: 65C02 (CMOS) Custom version just for Maxx Internal Memory: 2K RAM (CMOS), 8K ROM
U401 is the 8K ROM that contains the code to run MAXX
U400 is the 2K static RAM (6116) that you can use to program MAXX
U300 is the custom 65C02 CPU
U402 is an LC310 (half of speech)
U403 is an LS8100 (other hald of speech)
U500 is a custom microcontroller to check the status of the switches and control I/O
U200 is and KA2201 ans is the Amplifier for the sound and speech
Programming is easy. Three operating modes-- remote control, teaching, and programming. Program steps: 255 Music: 127 notes Speech: 16 sentences of 15 words (maximum) each Maximum Continuous Speech: 478 words
Base Vocabulary: approximately 140 words or word particles Music Range: Two octaves (chromatic scale)
Program steps: 255 Music: 127 notes - Music, with a keyboard that provides a 2-Octave Chromatic scale. Teach him a tune and he'll perform it from memory.
Speech: 16 sentences of 15 words (maximum) each Maximum Continuous Speech: 478 words - Robot talk. Maxx knows 125 words. He's helpful; he tells you how to use him. Or, program a phrase by punching in the words and he'll recite from memory.
Keyboard: 25 Multi-function keys Battery Life of Controller: 20 hours Range: approximately 25', depending on local conditions Frequency: 27.095 Mhz Power: 300mw
Time between charge: 1.5 to 4 hours, depending upon usage. Arms, wheels, wrist, and claw use more current than speech and music. Battery Charge Time: approximately 14 hours, depending on conditions. (See LABEL on inside of Maxx's chest compartment.)
Range of Operating Temperatures: 50 to 90 degrees F
Charger: 120 VAC, 60Hz. Output: 20 VAC, 14 va
Rechargeable Battery: 10 Volt Built-in rechargeable battery pack and, when Maxx needs a charge, he'll ask for it!
Fuse: #3AG 5 amp fast blow fuse
