There are currently some great opportunities for students to join SensiLab researchers in the following 12-week summer vacation project:
In this project you will work with a new robotic platform developed within SensiLab. The Drawbotic DB-01 is a low-cost mobile robot designed specifically to draw on flat surfaces. You can read about the history here. It is targeted at schools, hobbyists and artists, indeed anyone interested in exploring the creative possibilities of robots and automated drawing. About 20cm in diameter, it incorporates a range of sensors to detect movement, obstacles colours and lines. It also has a microphone and small speaker to make sounds. The hardware for the robot is complete and we are now expanding the software and creative functionality of the system.
The project starts from 21 November 2022.
Prerequisites: At least one of the following disciplinary areas: computer science, software engineering, mechatronics, fine art or design.
Additional information: The project will require you to work full time in our lab (based at Monash’s Caulfield Campus) for the duration of the project.
