Robotic Candy Sorter

Introduction Many embedded systems leverage a hierarchical structure in their product architecture for a more robust and efficient product. The more complex the product becomes, it is more preferable to segment tasks according to the processing unit’s role to observe optimal tradeoffs in the system. For instance, it would be impractical for a single processing …

Autonomous Foosball Table

Autonomous Foosball Table

I was contacted by somebody who suggested I should enter our senior design project here. Seeing as how we found and used the AX-12s from Trossen Robotics, I figured this would be a great place to post. This project was our senior design, a semester long course that requires a team of electrical and computer …

Flex Sensor

HAND-GESTURE CONTROLLED ROBOT

High-Level Design The project can be logical separated into two different components: the glove and the car. The glove is the main way the user will interact with the car. Several fingers on the glove are outfitted with flex sensors to capture events when the user curls or uncurls figers. There are a combination of …

Logical structure for the software implementation

EMG Robotic Hand

Introduction The goal of the project was to create a robotic hand that is controlled by sensing the muscular contractions in the arm of the user and to replicate the movements on the robotic hand. Electrodes will be placed on multiple areas on the arm of the user, and will sense the voltage differences of …

High level design

Pong Bot

Rationale The project’s focus is to accurately simulate the movement of a human arm on a small-sized robotic arm, such as aiming and throwing small objects, i.e. a ping pong ball. We use motion-controlled, 3-DoF robotic arm that takes the user’s throwing motion as a reference to its own throw. A robotic arm that mimics …

Image Processing Program

Rubik’s Cube Solving Robot

Introduction Our project was creating a rubiks cube solving robot that utilized image processing, Kociemba’s algorithm, and servos acting as claws/arms to turn the cube. We had a goal of being completely self contained and would not need any human interaction after the initial cube placement. In order to achieve this, we needed a way …
