Development of Demo Robot for Piezoelectrically Actuated Gripper
MetadataShow full item record
Applications of a small piezoelectric actuator developed by Dr. Jun Ueda will be explored. This will involve the development of a demo robot that incorporates the piezoelectric cellular actuator technology to actuate a tweezer-style end effector. The robot will be designed to give the end effector the freedom to move in a horizontal plane and to change orientation about a single axis. Classical control techniques will be used to accurately control the end effector's position. Development of the demo robot will also include the creation of a internet based interface for giving commands to the robot remotely.
