School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
In this project, a software package that controls a 3D scanner and a robotic was developed. The system was used for generating 3D models. The robot control system, however, is applicable to not only 3D scanning. A graphic user interface was created, the interface allows users to control the robot. Controlling refers to moving robot end effecter to designated positions and changing maximum velocity and acceleration of robot. Programming was done mainly in C++ utilizing open-source libraries. The project objectives was achieved through a progressive approach since each mile stone is largely dependent on the previous. This project is a module of a larger project which is the Automatic 3D Scanning Project. The Automatic 3D Scanning Project is a research project that explores the possibility of automatic path planning for robotic arm via information generated from the 3D scanner.
