Exoskeleton

user31387

How many people are in wheelchairs? How many have joint problems? Each of their lives could be made easier with an exoskeleton leg. The design problem was to build a robot in any of the given fields, ours was medicine. The exoskeleton leg is very helpful in that field. It could be used for people who are in wheelchairs or who have weak joints. It could be helpful in the law enforcement field, the exploration field, or the science field. The leg is geared for power. This would allow people to travel father without tiring. People could carry heavier loads. The exo-skeleton is designed to fit...

Nano-film coating robot

user30211

Nano –Film Coating Robot is designed using Vex Robotics micro controller for its continuous task of coating thin nano film on the glass plate by dip coating method. Concept: The glass plates are to be dipped in the hot and cold solutions alternatively for 100 times to form a nano thin film deposits on the glass plate. Working:The vex robotics PIC microcontroller controls and coordinates the working of the Nano-Film coating Robot. Step 1:The two plates to be coated with nano film are simultaneously dipped in the solutions and then lifted up by the worm gear mechanism powered by the motors....
