Course Introduction

Animatronics is the illusion of life achieved via electronic devices. Animatronics techniques using robots to imitate human and animal activities are widely practiced in movie making to create imaginary life-like creatures. Animatronics technology makes it possible to replicate a living being’s action and facial expressions. In this workshop, we train the students to design, fabricate and control an Animatronic hand using embedded systems.

Course Highlights

  • Introduction to Animatronics and its various real time applications
  • Development and control Techniques involved in designing Animatronic structures
  • Exposure to Flex sensors, Microcontroller programming (Freeduino), servo motors etc.
  • Design, Fabrication, Assembly and control of Animatronic hand
  • Sensor fabrication and Implementation
  • Understanding Freeduino Embedded platform and its Features
  • Interfacing Sensors, controller and Animatronic Hand
  • Arduino Programming Concepts
