AlexTheProgrammer - building a Real Robot for Real Life for everyone's house!
I was wondering if you would use ROS or roll your own control software. I was all set to sing the praises of Joe Jone’s Robot Programming book (again) …LOL There isn’t a whole lot of robotics work being showcased on this site. Just you and maybe half a dozen others. Have you seen the reddit Robotics site? It’s pretty cool. https://www.reddit.com/r/robotics/
Anyway, your description of what you’re planning to do reminded me of another member’s work with ROS. Maybe he can be a ROS resource for you.
See, the human mind is kind of like... a pinata. When it breaks open, there's a lot of surprises inside. Once you get the pinata perspective, you see that losing your mind can be a peak experience.

Will wait with interest to see your progress.
ROS unfortunately is beyond my programming ability.
