Our project was to design, fabricate and implement a parallel kinematic manipulator robot with open architecture to be used in the ME/RBE 4815 curriculum for inverse kinematics and other classroom projects. The robot was designed using solid modeling software and manufactured in the WPI machine shop with use of computer aided manufacturing techniques. We developed our own programming architecture to allow control of the robot via a touchscreen GUI. Learn more...
