This Interactive Design Tool Makes Robotics Easy

Friday, July 14, 2017

Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute created a new interactive tool to help beginner robotics students and experts make their own custom robots. With a drag and drop interface, the tool provides roboticists with a physical simulation environment where they can test out their robots before constructing them. There is also an auto-complete feature which assembles the components based on the decided arrangements. The tool was developed by Ruta Desai, a robotics Ph.D. student, along with Assistant Professor Stelian Coros, and master’s student Ye Yuan. The team presented their project report at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Singapore. Check out the video by the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute to see how it works.
