Projects

Writing With the ABB
(Rapid)

In this project, I wrote a RAPID script to draw any given string of visible ASCII characters on a moveable work surface using the ABB IRB 120.

This project was made as part of my submission for the 3rd-year robotics module at Middlesex University London.

Cozmo
(Python)

Cozmo is a really interesting robot with very polished animations. In this project, we programmed Cozmo to autonomously find and move cubes to a given location.

This was a fun early morning project to start the day.

Cup Grasping End Effector
(Ur5 and LabVIEW)

In this project, we (a team of 2) designed and built a cup grasping end-effector for the ABB IRB 120.

The end-effector was fitted with sensors and actuators which were connected to a National Instruments MyRIO, using LabVIEW as the controlling software.

Industrial Automation
(Fluidsim and Festo)

This video was made to demonstrate industrial automation using the Siemens PLC and Festo didactic components.

This was submitted as a part of my 2nd-year's Industrial Automation module at Middlesex University London.
