Generative design - robot exoskeleton
At the ROBIN group we are using generative design for automatic optimization of physical shapes for 3D printing and CNC machining. We have our own custom developed generators based on a new high voxel count FEA modeling technique running on the latest parallel CPU/GPU hardware.
Generative design - robot leg
For walking robots, it is important to keep a high strength-weight ratio, particularly in the lower part of the feet (leg) for the robot to save energy and enable good physical performance.
In this master project, the student will construct and test a robot leg based on two pneumatic cylinders in an agonists/antagonists configuration.
A truss based exoskeleton bone structure will be used, and the shape of the exoskeleton will be optimized for strength/weight by generative design.
