Modular Soft Robotic Gripper

Modular Soft Robotic Gripper

Traditional rigid robotic grippers are widely used in industry, but gentle and adaptive manipulation is limited. Scientists [1, 2] find the bioinspired way to create multi-degree-of-freedom soft actuators with appropriate sensory capabilities. Authors produced soft mechatronic fingers using embedded 3D printing and use integrated ionogel soft sensors.

DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.

Mechatronic Billiard Cue Stick - Robotic Support Helps You Win the Game

Mechatronic Billiard Cue Stick - Robotic Support Helps You Win the Game

In many areas robots are better than us. They are more precise, great at computations and can work without interruption in continuous mode. Their advantages are used in many industry areas, but mechatronic projects can be also a bit crazy, but very interesting scientifically and technically. An example of such an application is billard cue stick.

Projection Mapping System - Lumipen

Projection Mapping System - Lumipen

Lumipen is the projection mapping system developed by the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory at the University of Tokyo. It can track moving objects and it keeps them in the center of the screen continuously. Also, this mechatronic camera system can project images onto a moving object.

Self-Transforming Mobile Robot

Self-Transforming Mobile Robot

 Autonomous Self-Reconfigurable Locomotive Robot: designed and built by Muhammad Hasan Shariq for BEng Mechanical Engineering Honours Project (2009-2010) at Heriot-Watt University, Dubai Campus.

Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.
