Mechanical parts ‐ motors, pistons, grippers, wheels, and gears that make the robot move, grab, turn, and lift. These parts are usually powered by air, water, or electricity. 3. Sensors ‐ to tell the robot about its surroundings. Sensors allow the robot to determine sizes, shapes, space between objects, direction, and other relations and properties of substances.
However, these techniques could be extended in a number of different ways to achieve better performance. For control and grasping, the robot must be capable of sensing the orientation of its body with respect to the gravity vector, the location of its
The robots will have a neuron-inspired computer that will work similar to the way that human neurons and synapses communicate(Al-Rodhan). The new computational basis will bring robots closer to the same level of intelligence as humans. Robots will soon learn to develop memory(Al-Rodhan). The smartness of the robots could be a devastation to humans. The robots can learn how to execute jobs and accomplish jobs better or faster.
The usefullness of the skills and theories learnt at university can be only properly tested during application. This project will give student an opportunity to learn about the integration of software and hardware element of the final year project. Next, scholars in the future can refer to this project for continuous development of the biped robot technology. 1.6.1 Relevance to the Course The completion of this project requires knowledge in the field of Mechatronic Engineering. A student needs to have skills and knowledge in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science and embedded systems to succesfully complete the Biped Robot project.
The dynamic modeling shows us that the design of the biped robot prosthetic should be designed as a free-falling manipulator with no fixed ground. It has the Body Position Reference Generator with a position reference to the mass center of the prosthetic which is sent as input to body posture controller that determines the limbs position of the prosthetic in relation to the mass center by taking consideration of the force exerted by the body and the environment. It has a reactive force controller that regulates the amount of force created by the robot. This data is fed to a workspace position controller which determines the position in which the prosthetic has to move which provides the joint torques to move the biped robot. From this movement
This ball gives the robot an important feature which allows the robot to move in any direction, unlike the traditional robots which depend on low center of gravity and multiple wheels to maintain upright. This allows the evolution of producing human sized robot, especially w.r.t stability. This report aims to present the ballbot history and its developers trails, structural dimensions, its components and their functions, driving mechanism, simplified
For that they required special workers. It leads to increase in cost of the components and investment. Robotics gives a proper solution for that, advance technology in robotics makes it easier and cost effective. Also the design required being safe, for that the analysis of the manipulator is required. Static structural analysis is the method to analyses the manipulator.
The development of advanced technology has changed our life in a number of aspects. Among all the advanced technology, the invention of robots serves as the most proud innovation of human beings in that the functions of robots can be strikingly similar to real humans’ and even transcend human beings’ abilities. Thus, people always substitute the robot for manpower to get engaged in something hazardous or to surmount difficulties people cannot solve, such as to detect whether the bomb is dangerous or not, to investigate whether there are some living creatures in other planets, to examine whether the materials are poisonous or not, to sweep the mines in the battlefield and so on. In addition, many types of robots are also created to deal with humans’ trifles. For example, some robots can sweep the floor or brush the toilet for people while some can take care of pets or look after the house.
In the past the research on robotic therapy for upper limb was based on end-effector robots. These robots allow the user to hold at one point the machine, generating the force at the interface. In these robots the joints do not match the human limb joints. This is a simple solution, easy to design and adjust to fit several patient arms, but it is difficult determining the posture of the upper limb with just one interface hand-machine. Furthermore in this kind of solutions it is difficult to control the torque generation, the isolation of the movement at a single joint is not easy and at last just few movements can be executed for the limited range of motion of the robot.
When a fire is detected, it stops in front of it and triggers the fan to turn out the fire. "The three fundamental Rules of Robotics... One, a robot may not injure a human being, or, through in action, allow a human being to come to harm... Two... a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First law... Three, a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws" (Isaac Asimov “I, Robot”). The robot can be used for future applications in fire fighting, coastal seafloor mapping and foreign land exploration. The goals of this project are listed
