MeshBot

Automated Robotic Assembly and Fabrication

MeshBot

MeshBot is a fully automated robotic fabrication for mesh structures. It consists of two robotic arm as the holder and welder that fabricate a structure made of pre-fabricated triangular metal parts. 

The robotic end effector assembly has two main units: 1. Microsoft Kinect for computer vision, and 2. A wirelessly controlled electropermanent magnetic gripper. 

The computer vision algorithm can detect elements and find the pickup point.
