Abstract:

Florida International University successfully completed the proposed project entitled, Research Experience for Undergraduates in Robotics and Materials. Nineteen students designed and manufactured a user-friendly industrial robot with three functional axes and an IBM-PC-based C-based controller. The accuracy of the robot is 0.0005 inch when two axes are used. An operator can control the motions of the robot with a few hours of training by using the PC-based controller mouse. The controller also provides graphical simulation of the robot motions.
