The automation of ribbon-cutting for opening ceremony of the lab displays the design of a custom-made dynamic attachments for the end of KUKA robotic arm. The attachment uses a pneumatic linear actuator to integrate with the robotic arm via a digital I/O (input/ output) mapping.
Fabrication & Installations
The geodesic dome assembly showcases the robotic arm’s reach, accuracy, and repeatability. The dome and infill are produced through integration of an algorithmic design with advanced digital fabrication techniques.
Ceramic Forms and Skin
The architectural scale prototype clay tiles showcase the possibilities of using a clay extruder integrated with an industrial robotic arm. The modular ceramic bricks are based on the efficient use of structural forms to save material and create intricate geometries that reflect their purpose.
An innovative instrument integrating temperature, depth, conductivity, salinity, and GPS sensors designed for the public use during the King Tides events to collect data on water level and pollution. The data is then transmitted via the instrument’s phone application to the scientific community.
