The hexabot robot is designed to avoid obstacles using ultra-sound sensors.
Control your robot to move wirelessly using our app.
Our robot is assembled and produced in Hong Kong, by ourselves, using 3D Printed Technology.
Study of the project
Project Plan Proposal and Website
Gather and all requirements and design the architecture
Starting implementation (using iterative method)
Android App 1.0
Test Print and Combine the 3D Model
Ultrasound sensor to get the distance of obstacle
Naive movements of Robot
Tailor 3D printing model
Finalize 3D Printing Model
Server have the basic logic: forward,backward,turn left, turn right.
Natural Movement of Robot
Enhence the Kinematic Algorithm
The hexapod can move around with a plain surface without any control. It will turn round when detect an obstacle.
Finalize the Kinematic Algorithm and check the correctness
Added a webcam on the robot. The smart phone application can see what is infront of the hexapod continuously.
The robot can move along a stair
User can enter a text on the smart phone application, the rebot will speak it out.
Testing all features and optimization
Ready to deliver the FYP project.
