The following are my completed projects at UTEHY (Hung Yen University of Technology and Education)
1. Rescue Robot
In a collapsed structure of the disasters, human rescuers have a very short time to find trapped victims. The chance of finding victims still alive is nearly zero. In these critical situations, robots have been proposed to help rescuers to perform rescue-tasks. Robots which work under disasters environment are called Rescue-Robot. Stairs-climbing ability is the crucial performance of a mobile robot for urban environment mission. The track type mobile mechanism is selected for the locomotion of the robot because of its advantages such as high stability, easy to control, low terrain pressure, and continuous drive. Stairs-climbing is a complicated process for a tracked mobile robot under kinematics and dynamics constraints. This project designs a mobile robot with the tele-control and tele-monitoring.
2. Autonomous Mobile Robot
This project designs and manufactures an autonomous mobile robot. The Robot is designed so that it can move automatically in pre-set paths. A special characteristic of the Robot is that it can move flexibly in narrow spaces by using omni-directional wheels. To implement the above requirement, the Robot is controlled by a PIC16F877A microcontroller along with four DC motors and driver circuits. In addition, it is equipped with incremental encoders to detect the velocity as well as position of the Robot. In the future, the Robot can be developed for applications such as home, library or hospital service
3. Welding Robot
Welding robots have been widely applied in industry. This project aims to develop a 3 DOF welding robot prototype for teaching Industrial Robotics at UTEHY.
4. Robocon 2009
The above picture shows two Robots of ICE-TEA team which is designed for the ABU Robot Contest 2009 (Robocon 2009). This team has received a price for “THE BEST IDEA” in the contest.
