Summer program at Assemtica Robotics - selected students got trained in  Advanced Robotics and here they demonstrate multi robot programming  using dobot magicians. 

Robotic workcell using OpenCV, Custom Dobot APIs and Python

Vision system integrated mini Robotic work cell was developed by  students during our summer program in Machine Vision at Assemtica Robotics. Here we demonstrate machine vision using opencv for python and  custom Dobot APIs in python. A webcam module is integrated with Robots  and conveyor for pick and place application in an industrial scenario. 

Robotic Component Assembly

Robotic assembly is widely used in electronics industry to assemble wide variety of components . Here we demonstrate robotic assembly of A4988 stepper drivers and heat sinks onto CNC shield V3 using Dobot Magician. Jigs are designed, 3D Printed and robotic programming was done at Assemtica Robotics

Deep Learning in Industrial Robots using TensorFlow & OpenCV

Machine intelligence is integration of robotics, sensors, vision systems and machine learning. Here we demonstrate machine intelligence application through deep learning by using tensor flow, python programming and vision system integrated with Dobot Magician. A webcam module is integrated with electromagnet end effector for performing intelligent sorting of nuts and bolts. Application developed at Assemtica Robotics.

Vision Integrated Robotic end effector for pick and place

Vision Integrated End Effectors are essential in smart factory applications for robot guidance. Here we demonstrate a vision integrated robotic end effector for Dobot Magician by combining webcam and suction cup through 3D printed jig and using python programming for vision interface. Application was developed at Assemtica Robotics.

Machine Vision - Pick and Place objects using webcam

Machine vision effectively digitizes our physical world. This digitisation enables cross talk between computers and machines. Here we employed a webcam to demonstrate object identification for pick and place application for Dobot Magician.

Jigs for webcam mounting was designed, 3D printed, integrated and Robotic programming in Python for pick and drop application was done at Assemtica Robotics.

Multi Robot Collaboration

Multi robot collaboration is required in assembly lines where products need to be handed over from one robot to the other. Here we demonstrate programming multiple Dobot Magicians for collaborative tasks using Python. Pallet for cube placement was designed, 3D printed and Robotic programming for pick and place was done at Assemtica Robotics.

Color coded Robotic product retrieval from a turret

Turrets are widely used in storage and retrieval systems in factories. Here we demonstrate retrieval of product using Dobot Magician based on color code. Photosensor, color sensor and stepper motor are integrated with the robot to retrieve red color cube and place it onto the conveyor. 

Jigs, turret, stepper motor mount, photosensor bracket were designed, 3D printed and Robotic Programming was done at Assemtica Robotics.

Robotic product placement onto a storage turret

Turrets are widely used in factories in storage and retrieval systems. The first robot picks up the object from the pallet and transported via conveyor. The second robot senses the object through a photosensor and picks up the object from the conveyor and places onto an empty slot of the storage turret and the turret turns to the next available slot.

Jigs, turret and pallet were designed, 3D printed and Robotic Programming was done at Assemtica Robotics

Robotic Palletization

Robots are widely used in factories to palletize products. Robots and end effectors are configured to suit specific pallets. 

Pallets showcased were designed, 3D printed and Robots were programmed at Assemtica Robotics to simulate industrial palletization application.

3D printed Jigs to correct Robotic pick and place error

Robotic pick and place error in factory assembly lines is a major engineering problem. Here we demonstrate an innovative solution to correct the placement error using 3D printed jigs fitted to conveyor. 

Design, 3D printing of Jigs and Robotic programming was done at Assemtica Robotics. 

Photosensor controlled Robotic Product retrieval

Turrets are widely used in factories in storage and retrieval systems. Stepper motor and photosensor are integrated with the robot to retrieve the object using Dobot Magician based on the object's presence in the turret slot.  The turret auto turns to an occupied slot and waits for the object to be picked up by the robot. 

Jigs, turret, stepper motor mount, photosensor bracket were designed, 3D printed and Robotic programming was done at Assemtica Robotics.
