MetadataShow full item record
An automatically guided mechanical manipulator is an electromechanical « device used for transportation and material handling. A combination of k electronics control and mechanics (mechatronics) design and analysis is » needed during the conceptualization of the design and preliminary design phases. The prototype constructed is capable of carrying a load of two pounds, ^ transporting it from one work station to another and placing it on a shelf. The £ electronic controller developed regulates all aspects of the dynamics of the manipulator. It produces a smooth startup, constant motion speed, and smooth stop. This process is repeated as required and programmed by the designer.
