Design of A Miniature Humanoid and Perception of Objects In Space-An Effective Method of Object Localisation

Authors(2) :-Prof. Bhagirathi bai V, Tanmay N Deshmukh

This is an autonomous robot whose main function is to perform basic tasks such as pick and place desired objects aided by computer vision and involving hand-eye coordination. It features a smart shoulder joint design whose yaw and roll movement designs are inspired by a human shoulder joint. For perception of depth and space, the robot uses an ultrasonic distance sensor in combination with a single camera.
