Industrial Projects @ KUKA(IRTC):


  • KUKA youBot Integration with LabVIEW for Industrial Application

In this project we are going to discuss we are trying to accomplish the interaction of KUKA youBot with LabVIEW using NI hardware C-RIO 9025, ether CAT cable. KUKA has recently launched a major research and mobile manipulation platform . We have been able to control the movement of all the five axis of youBot and gripper control. With the help of VGA cable we were able to establish connection between the youBot and PC so that youBot can be initialized to it’s “open gripper position”.

  • Different Shape Selection with Camera Sensing Using Kr-16 Robot

Different shaped objects will be placed on the conveyor belt. A camera (COGNEX In-Sight Camera) mounted on the gripper of the robot would take the image and detect the shape of the object and send the corresponding signal to the robot. Then the robot segregates the object according to the respective command from the camera. This Project will help to segregate the unwanted materials from required material and differentiate the different objects in Industry.


  • YouBot Control Using Leap Motion Sensor

To remotely control the KUKA YouBot via the Leap Motion sensor. Control of the YouBot base as well as the YouBot arm and gripper will be done by hand gestures. There is scope of tremendous new activities which can be done through this amazing device (Leap Motion Controller).


  • Android Application for YouBot Control

Handling the YouBot via wired mechanism is hectic in complicated tasks. Android application enables to control the YouBot connected over the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The Android based application is used to remotely control the KUKA YouBot via an Android smart-phone/Tablet. The control the KUKA YouBot BASE and ARM by selecting different controller modes. It uses the BlueZ library and a Blue-tooth interface. Different other programs will be integrated into the Android APP.


  • TiloBot: Automated Tile Fixing Robot

Lying out of tiles is common everywhere, whether it is for domestic use such as in Houses, Rooms, Kitchens, and Bathrooms or for Industrial purposes such as Big Offices, Production Houses. Nowadays even renovation of old buildings requires immediate & effective use of Tiles to do away with old floorings. But as always seen, manual Tile-fixing becomes a cumbersome & time-taking process for large areas. So to do away with this difficulty of Civil Engineering Companies, we have come up with a new approach of TILOBOT. This is the world’s 1st process of tile fixing on walls. Tile fixing system which utilizes YouBot coupled with another Robot in order to automate the whole Process. The present system gives a brief introduction to the proposed tile-fixing robot which is accomplished using the new mobile robot, YouBot.


  • Control of Industrial Robotic System using Universal Virtual Teach Pendant

In the present work we propose to develop a unique “virtual teach pendent” using “Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Workbench” (LabVIEW) for eliminating the need of hard wired teach pendant generally present in an industrial manipulator system. LabVIEW a high level programming language with graphical language developed by National Instruments which is used for data acquisition, instrument control, and industrial automation. The teach pendant which to be developed will be open sourced and can be programmed according to the need of the application of the system. Therefore, we can make the robotic system perform versatile operation like pick place, painting, welding, cutting etc. by just changing the software on the teach pendant. The “teach pendant” should have the functionality to be programmed as per need of the application. Just the change of the software on the teach pendant should allow the robotic system to perform versatile operations such as pick-place, gluing, painting, welding, cutting etc.


  • Fixture Design for cylindrical product and process parameter optimization for robotic MIG welding

Robotic welding requires specialized fixtures to accurately hold the work piece during the welding operation. Fixture design reduces cycle time and operator labor while increasing functionality; and allows complex welding operations. While robotic welding can vastly improve productivity over semiautomatic welding, the level of efficiency of automation depends upon the thoughtful design of the fixturing for maximum productivity. Robotic welding is economical when properly applied, but it can be terribly inefficient and cost-prohibitive when simple fixture design considerations are overlooked. Many productivity gains are realized, or lost, at the design stage and while parts fixturing performs a role that is simple, good fixture design is critical to the success of a robotic welding system.


  • Design and Development of Welding Fixture for Automobile Industry

The main aim of the project is to design a basic welding fixture to hola the two fuel tank halvesof a two wheeler automobile system using the application of pneumatics. Looking into the current Scenario, the basic problem that a two wheeler welding fixture encounters is regarding the alignment of the two fuel tank halves and inability to attain straight line motion of the linkage arrangement. This drawback is not expected and to curb it the useof SCOTT RUSSELL mechanism is proposed to attain straight line motion. This system is a step towards making the process an automated procedure and it further facilitates the usage of this fixture assembly for the purpose of mass production.
