Title: MIRROR ROBOT TO IMITATE HUMAN MOTION
Author: MUSTAFA, MOHAMMED
Abstract: Recently the use of robots has become very popular in many applications. Robots that does jobs similar to humans are used in applications were it would prove too risky for humans. These robots look like humans or at least like parts of a human being. Robots are replacing humans in industry because they proved to be more efficient than them and they are not affected by the working environment. Those robots are controlled by numerous techniques. Our aim was to control a robotic arm using the motion of a human arm. Meaning that a human would wear sensors in his arm and move his arm to do the desired action and the robotic arm imitates it. The scope was to capture the motion of the shoulder and elbow joints using accelerometers and gyroscopes and to regenerate this motion using servo motors to represent the joints of the robotic arm. With the availability of one motor, it could be safely said that the implemented system met its objectives since the testing shows that the targeted motions are captured correctly and the regeneration process is the same for all the movements.
Description: This project is capture the human arm motion using sensors (Accelerometers and gyroscopes) and regenerate the same motion using a robotic arm. The motion of the arm is the vertical and horizontal motions of the shoulder and elbow joints. The wrist and the remainder of the arm are not included.
