ABOUT THE EVENT
The event Tech-Expo was a student innovation contest organised at MNIT JAIPUR during its anual Techno-Cultural Fest - BLitzschalg '14. The objective was to propose an engineering solution to any existing world problem or assist the same.
Building a robotic arm capable of replicating the motion of human arm using a sensor powered pair of gloves
The arm was designed just as a human arm with fingers and the palm. The fingers were powered using low power servo motors and had an actuated wrist as well. The arm was controlled using a glove with flex sensors that could map the motion of the finger to that of the motion of the fingers of the artificial robotic arm using a micro-controller based decision-making system. The setup had mediocre efficiency and performance.
• 2.2" Flex sensors for sensing the movement of the fingers.
• Low torque servo motors for actuation of the fingers of the artificial robotic arm.•Processing done via Arduino micro-controller.
>> Won the runners up prize for our innovative Robotic Arm in Tech-Expo '14 in the fresher year
>> Renovated the design with better 3D printed parts for efficient and better performance
