Robot Hand – Weekend Project

It had been really long since I built something. So just to get over the itch, I hacked up this simple project over a few hours this Sunday.

Project:

I found this really inexpensive ($12) toy arm at a local shop. Wanting to experiment with it, I hooked up some servos to the device and automated the arm

Here are few Pics and a video

Unmanned Tandem Rotor Helicopter – DP-6 WHISPER

I worked as a Research Engineer (intern) at Dragonfly Pictures Inc for a span of 6 month. I worked with a team of hardware and software engineers, to design the avionics for an electric tandem unmanned helicopter product (DP-6 Whisper). I designed circuits and PCB’S for avionics control systems and DC/DC conversion systems for electric helicopters.

Due to the nature of the project and its application it is not possible to reveal any details of the project, but some information is provided on the company’s website here. DP-6 Whisper

 

ROBOTRON: Market Analysis of CkBots

CkBot is a self assembling robot, developed by Professor Mark Yim at University of Pennsylvania. The report aimed at shaping this technology-driven discovery into a customer-driven product, identify the target market for the product & developing a marketing strategy for penetrating the market. It also aims at providing an assessment of the total market potential to develop a dollar sales forecast over time for the product.

This project was developed for EAS 545: Engineering Entrepreneurship Course. View more to see the complete report…

iArm – Robotic Manipulator

iARM is a 4-Axis (iARM-5X is 5 axis) RRR Robotic manipulator with Pitch (& Roll in iArm-5X). It was deleloped to serve as a LAB tool for performing Robot Kinematics and Workspace analysis. It is accompanied by a GUI (TRIceps) which allows the user to vary all angles and provides user with the end-point location or gripper position. The iARM-5X can also perform Inverse Kinematics and also can display workspace of the robot. Both iARM 4 and 5 axis use RC servo motors forthier joints.

iARM is my most beloved project ever. It started almost 8 months before I joined TRI but was shelved due to lack of resources and knowledge. It was a challenge thrown at me and I am glad it completed it with charm. I am totally involved in this project right from designing to marketing. It was a very great satsfaction to sell the very 1st iARM I made to my own university K.J.Somaiya COE :). Best learning experience ever. The most expensive product in TRI’s offering.

iBOT-proV

Finally  after months of brain-storming, designing, building, programming and manufacturing the iBOT proV is out for a grab. Make a robot, a home security system or a vacuum cleaner, the iBOT proV is a truly versatile programmable multi sensor system.

The aim for building this was to make a perfect platform for learning Mobile Robotics, Mechatronics and Embedded systems.
