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 …
