Project Type: University Individual Project
CAD / FEA
Able to use fundamental mechanics to synthesize, analyze and prototype machine design.
Expert in Solidworks, Fusion 360, Inventor, AutoCAD, and KeyShot.
Experienced in using divergent and convergent thinking
Self Jumping Robot
The design must be reliable and achieve the set target specifications of 1m jump height and 1m travel distance. The robot should cost less than £100 and a weight of less than 200 g.
Designed and engineered a unique jumping mechanism
Developed a full-scale CAD model
Produced technical drawings
Design Engineering Process
Studied current jumping robot designs and used geared toys as inspiration to create cheap and efficient gear systems.
Prototyped using toy gearboxes to develop proposed gear system designs for launch and landing mechanisms.
Designed and engineered subsystems including the battery type, motor type, and launch & landing mechanisms.
Used fundamental mechanics equations, FEA, and material analysis to iterate and validate the design.
