  1. TISP: Shenzhen7-8 July 2009 Building a Robot Arm Moshe Kam Yvonne Pelham D.G. Gorham

  2. Build your own Robotic Arm Moshe KamIEEE Educational Activities

  3. Robot Arm We will build a robot arm from simple materials The arm must pick up a paper cup from a distance of 45cm Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm Bring the cup back to rest and release it

  4. Robot Arm You cannot get too close… Robot Arm Student Cup 45cm You cannot get any closer than 45cm to the cup at any time

  5. Robot Arm Steel Wire Cardboard Clothespins Ice cream sticks Rubber bands Binder clips Paper clips Small pencils Tape Paper fasteners Plastic bag Fishing lines Strings Available Materials

  6. Robot Arm Divide into teams of two (2) Review the requirements Discuss a solution and create a sketch of your design Build a model of your design with given materials Test your model Outline and Procedures

  7. Robot Arm Discuss and agree upon a redesign If needed after testing, or to enhance the previous design Rebuild your robot arm Retest your model Answer reflection questions as a team Redesign after testing

  8. Robot Arm What was one thing you liked about your design? What is its main weakness? What is one thing you would change about your design based on your experience Are there algebraic and physical principles that can be applied to this activity? How would you modify the instructions to create a better experience for the participants? Reflection Questions

  9. Robot Arm The arm must pick up a plastic cup from a distance of 45cm Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm Bring the cup back to rest and release it Design requirements

  10. Robot Arm NEW DESIGN REQUIREMENT Lift and release the cup when it is upside down UPDATE FROM SPACE AGENCY

  11. Robot Arm The arm must pick up a plastic cup from a distance of 45cm Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm Bring the cup back to rest and release it Lift and release the cup when it is upside down Design requirements

  12. Robot Arm NEW DESIGN REQUIREMENT Lift and release the cup when it is full of water UPDATE FROM SPACE AGENCY

  13. Robot Arm The arm must pick up a plastic cup from a distance of 45cm Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm Bring the cup back to rest and release it Lift and release the cup when it is upside down Lift and release the cup when it is full of water Design requirements

  14. Robot Arm NEW DESIGN REQUIREMENT Need a single device that can manipulate a cup as well as a pen. Device can use twodifferent endmanipulators UPDATE FROM SPACE AGENCY

  15. Robot Arm The arm must pick up a plastic cup from a distance of 45cm Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm Bring the cup back to rest and release it Lift and release the cup when it is upside down Lift and release the cup when it is full of water Use the same design (possibly with a modified end manipulator) to lift a pen Design requirements
