Project Description: Robotics System Integration

Team AI will first perform a feasibility study of three robotics projects for the future upgrade of LSSU's robotics labs. The three projects are: 1) to revamp the current 4-robot Fanuc automated flow line, 2) to upgrade the 3-robot Adept rotary index table line, and 3) to build a showcase robotics workcell using an existing extruded alumimum platform. The team will then fully design and implement one of the three projects. The selected project will involve the integration of robotics system(s), robotics toooling, system flow controller, and machine vision.
