Summary

Study and explore design principles of the different mechatronic components and systems. We will cover in-depth especially on meso-scale actuators, sensors and body construction methods.

Content

Each group will be responsible for producing a product based on the hands-on tutorials that will cover

1. acutators (Shape memory alloy, penumatic actuators)

2. structures (origami, cable-pulled underactuated system, 3D printed modular blocks)

3. model (SMA actuator, silicone based blocks)

each group is evaluated on their prototype and report.

Keywords

Sensors and Actuators, Smart actuators, Flexures, Compliant mechanisms.  Polymer, Design Methodology, pneumatic actuators, origami robots
