ME-410 - Mechanical product design & development
Study and explore design principles of the different mechatronic components and systems. We will cover in-depth especially on meso-scale actuators, sensors and body construction methods.
Each group will be responsible for producing a product based on the hands-on tutorials that will cover
1. acutators (Shape memory alloy, penumatic actuators)
2. structures (origami, cable-pulled underactuated system, 3D printed modular blocks)
3. model (SMA actuator, silicone based blocks)
each group is evaluated on their prototype and report.
Build a functional prototype in 13 weeks. If not functional, the course is failed
Number of students
There are usually 30-35 students doing this project.
