Transcript of animatronics_robot_hand

PROJECT BACKGROUND Humanoid hand is a robot that resembles human hand

The dexterity depends on the number of DOF of the robot.

Animatronics is the use of the Electronics & Robotics in the mechanised puppets to make them alive.

This project aim to produce a simple mechanism of animatronics robot hand that can perform simple task. Servomotor A small box that contain a DC electric motor,gears with an output shaft, position-sensing mechanism, and control circuitry. FINAL YEAR PROJECT 1 ANIMATRONICS ROBOT HAND The main challenge:
Design and specification of the robot hand that required in performing the tasks.
Simplifying the robot mechanism with less number of DOF and less cost.

The process’s trickiest part:
The mechanical structure design of robot hand PROBLEM STATEMENTS 5 fingered robot hand


Type of controller
AVR AtMega 328 (Arduino platform)

Dimension: Normal human hand SCOPE The objective of this project is to develop a multi-fingered robot hand with simple mechanism design, able to interact with people remotely or by preprogram and able to grasp and release a small size object.

Robot design consists of :
Dimension (approximately same with normal human)
Structure material (Aluminum, acrylic prespex, tube)
Robot actuator (DC servomotor) Arduino platform
Interfacing circuit Arduino platform is programmed using C++ language. METHODOLOGY EXPECTED
OUTCOME Perform like human hand.

Robot hand which can interact with people.

Examples of activities of this animatronics robot hand are:
1. hand waving
2. hand shaking
3. grasping and releasing a simple and small size object Start
