  1. 1. Introduction to Applied Robotics Kyle Barnas
  2. 2. Table of Contents <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Application </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Autonomy </li></ul><ul><li>Calibration & Structure </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial Robotics </li></ul><ul><li>Humanoid Robotics & Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis & Conclusion </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>A robot is a mechanical or virtual, artificial agent. It is usually an electromechanical system, which, by its appearance or movements, conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Introduction <ul><li>The first robot design was introduced by Leanardo da Vinci in 1495. Da Vinci's idea was a mechanical knight that could sit up, wave its arms and move its head and jaw.   </li></ul><ul><li>The first &quot;modern&quot; robot, digitally operated and teachable, was invented by George Devol and was called the Unimate. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Application <ul><li>Military- enabling us to fight without human casualties. </li></ul><ul><li>http:// </li></ul><ul><li>The Predator- expensive but effective. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Application <ul><li>Predator Performance </li></ul>62 mph Stall speed 81-103 mph Cruise speed 135 mph Maximum speed
  7. 7. Application <ul><li>Serving businesses </li></ul><ul><li>-Robotic assembly lines </li></ul><ul><li>Car production is one of the best examples of complex robots serving a positive purpose. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Application <ul><li>Dangerous environments </li></ul><ul><li>-Exploration </li></ul><ul><li>-Robots can be used to clean and disable materials that would be lethal to humans or animals. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Application <ul><li>Precision </li></ul><ul><li>-There are surgical robots controlled from a workstation said to revolutionize neurosurgery and other branches of operative medicine by liberating them from the constraints of the human hand. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Energy Autonomy <ul><li>The goal of creating an environmentally sound robot capable of extracting energy from the environment by themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>A technology known as microbial fuel cell technology (MFC). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Slugbot” </li></ul>
  11. 11. Calibration & Structure <ul><li>Robot calibration is the process of identifying the real geometrical parameters in the kinematic structure of an industrial robot. </li></ul><ul><li>A calibrated robot has a higher positioning accuracy than an uncalibrated one. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Industrial Robotics <ul><li>An automatically controlled, reprogrammable, multipurpose manipulator programmable in three or more axes. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Humanoid Robotics <ul><li>A robot with its overall appearance based on that of the human body. </li></ul><ul><li>Androids are humanoid robots built to resemble a male human. </li></ul><ul><li>Gynoids are humanoid robots built to resemble a human female. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Robotic Efficiency <ul><li>Robots that walk like human beings are common in science fiction but not easy to reproduce in real life. </li></ul><ul><li>Cornell, Delft and MIT models. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  15. 15. Analysis/Conclusion <ul><li>Robots are highly useful and effective in society. </li></ul><ul><li>Expensive but worth the cost. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Quiz <ul><li>Who first introduced the concept of a robot? </li></ul><ul><li>-Leanardo da Vinci in 1495 </li></ul><ul><li>Which humanoid robot was built to resemble a male human? </li></ul><ul><li>-The Android </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for your participation  </li></ul>
