Presentation Transcript

  1. Social Robotics –The MIMERMotion Interactive Medical Exercise Robot John Allison Trevor Pier

  2. Overview Goal: Develop a robot for clinical use with underdeveloped children that mimics and encourages movement to help with motor and neural development Components Kinect for Windows Microcontrollers (Arduino) Laptop for processing Robot body and motors

  3. Background The Mirror Neuron Unit Studies say that watching movements while doing them develops MNUs MNUs are thought to be tied with higher brain function

  4. Background Systems in use: Motion games for stroke patients Physical therapy - If some of this time can be spent with this robot, costs can be reduced Clinical need was discovered by a nurse in the Anchutz Medical center observing positive results from a child with Autism with a similar device

  5. Mechanical Side –The robot Degrees of movement – Shoulder and elbow joints must be able to rotate and extend (hands being developed later) Motors – Must keep track of position (servos), and have enough torque to lift the arms, run off of 5V from the Arduino

  6. CAD & DOF

  7. Objectives

  8. Constraints

  9. Evaluation Plan End of Fall Semester

  10. Evaluation Plan End of Spring Semester *Successful- Determined by Doctor or Sponsor

  11. Questions?
