An interactive sensory wearable for playing Laser Tag

#Georgia Tech - IPDL - ID 6763 - Design of Interactive Environments

Description:

The armor worn by players is an interactive wearable that contains lights and vibration motors along with infrared sensors that detect hits from infrared signals. This armor also contains rechargeable batteries and connects to a central server to keep score and send notifications to the players. The armor is connected to the laser gun, which contains a modulated infrared laser that emits from the gun when the players fire the weapon.

Unitized Cable-Suspended Parallel Robot (CSPR)

A small-scale cable robot designing and prototyping to assess its applicability for use on field applications ( where typical factory-based serial robots are unsuitedfor such applications)

# Georgia Tech Digital Fabrication Lab (DFL)

Supervised by: Dr. Russell Gentry

Description:

A group of three or more cable robot axes that will be ganged together to move the end- effector. A central computer, networked to the microcontrollers, instructs the individual axes to move and ensures that the actions are synchronized. The inverse kinematics of the CSPR is managed by the central computer. Our first generation prototype includes gear-reduction stepper motor, motor controller, Arudino MEGA with Ethernet shield, pinch roller assembly, and encoder. One of the goals of such development is large-scale 3D Printing and assembly applications.

A magic mirror that monitors people mood

#Georgia Tech - IPDL - ID 6763 - Design of Interactive Environments

 

Description:

Moody Mirror is a interactive mirror that can monitor people’s mood at a specific location as well as show information using visualization in mirror surface, desktop and mobile app. More than functioning as a real mirror, Moody Mirror also uses sensors to gather data from the environment. Data collected includes people’s mood and the crowdedness of the surroundings. When a person is standing in front of the mirror, he/she is able to see not only themselves but also how happy people are at that location on that day. The mirror also uses a graph to show the average happiness and the crowdedness over a week. Eventually, Moody Mirror will help us identify the happiest time over a week at a location and the happiest place on campus.

Sensor-based robotic workflow for sorting objects in a pick and placement process

# Georgia Tech DFL-Robotics

Description:

Some existing variables and properties in design to fabrication processes are not prefixed. So, design to fabrication workflow has to be flexible enough in the implementation process to be responsive to the instantaneous changes of variables while robot is running. RoboSort, is about designing an adaptive feedback control system to detect the color of blocks as a variable property and feed these immediate collected values into the developed sorting algorithm and execute a real-time decision-making in an intelligent assembly task.

A dynamic interactive tube wall actuated by robotic arm and responsive to human motion in nearby environment

# CMU dFab-Robotics

# CMU Code LAB

Description:

Porosity is a porous interactive surface which is transforming to variety of patterns in response to individuals' motion in nearby environment. In there, robotic arm acted as an actuator for creating the patterns on dynamic animated surface in a real-time process. Work environment includes Kinect as a depth sensor, parametric modeling software environment and real-time robot programming in RobotStudio; RAPID and Python.

A sensor-based architectural element as a building façade component, responsive to sunlight variation

# CMU - Code lab

Description:

As an architect, always, there was a question about how we can design the architectural elements to be responsive to their context/environment. For instance, how a surface can receive more or less amount of sun light, and how such amount of variation in different parameters can be influential in design process, pattern and form finding. So, this project creates a dynamic and interactive component that is responsive to the amount of light. Grasshopper, Arduino and Firefly are software and hardware used in this project.

A sensor-based architectural element as a building façade component, responsive to the amount of shade

# CMU - Code Lab

Description:

Interactive Shading explores how the inherent complexity of biological mechanisms is an emergent property based on simple rule sets and biologic condition of homeostasis. The project is inspired by Puffer Fish and inflation-deflation mechanism in its defense system. The matter of material and choosing silicone for mimicking the organism characteristic was an important parameter in design process. By accumulation of Vacuum pump, Servo motors, valves, Arduino and light sensors, 1/1physical prototyping let us to observe and test the architectural application of the component.
