SCI-Arc Robot House
Applied Studies Seminar, Fall 2011
Taught by W. Andrew Atwood
Students: William Hu, Jasmine Park and Haleh Olfati
Andrew Atwood's seminar focuses on developing tools and techniques for controlling multiple six-axis robotic arms in increasingly synchronous ways. Students are introduced to basic principles and techniques of mechatronic control through a series of workshops, lectures and class discussions, developing technical skills related to robotic movement as well as necessary intellectual tools related to the concepts and theories of control.
Starting with a single "hot wire," students develop various end effector prototypes. Their experiments in burning, melting, extracting, depositing, dropping, etc. led to strategies of addition, substraction and re-additive fabrication, which then were applied to a final figure.
The ultimate objective was the development of robust processes of control which produce a series of "misfigures."
