Proj 1: Animal

For this project, you are to create a robotic animal that includes “inputs” (sensors) and “outputs” (motors, or other). Try and capture the look, feel, and movements of the animal you choose. Your animal must also react appropriately to some set of inputs.

Harambot 4000 Model E

 The Harambot 4000 Model E was invented by Liam Durant and Yekwon Park. The robot functions with a brick that resembles the body, and 4 motors attached to the brick that resemble the legs of a gorilla. There are also ultrasonic sensor and touch sensor attached to represent eyes and chest, respectively. First, the motors […]

Kermit the Frog

 Duc Nguyen and Julia Ferreira Intro to Engineering: Robotics Robotic Animal                For our robotic animal, we decided to make a frog.  We used the brick as the body and attached two motors to either side.  To each motor, we attached a white, angled piece to serve as the […]

Melman the Giraffe

  Jason Figueroa and Daniel Geary. For our robot animal project we built a giraffe. We went with a long neck design to make sure that it is obivious that our robot represented a giraffe. Behind the neck are reinforcement legos to keep it sturdy and strong. Connected to the neck is a weak motor […]

Geoff the RoboDog

  David Carratu Paul Gelhaus Project Description For this project we wanted to created a robot of an animal that we were both familiar with the movements so that we could accurately recreate them in our robot. Therefore, both us having pet dogs back home, we decided on creating a robotic dog named RoboDog. For […]

Jen and Thu

The robotic dog we created walks forward when someone touches its nose and it wags its tail when someone comes close to pet it. A touch sensor is the input that acts as the “nose” of the dog. The two motors on the side that act like dog’s legs they are the output that react […]
