Fall 2017 - Spring 2019 Projects

Team Limbo (Haptic Feedback Prosthetic)

Team Leader: Hisham Temmar
Description: This project will focus on creating a low-budget, upper-limb prosthetic from the ground up that can be controlled by users and provide feedback to the user about relative hand position, grip strength, etc. There will be aspects of device design, circuit design, CAD, and more!
Time commitment: 2 hours/week.
Meeting Times: TBD.
Meeting Venue: TBD.

Assistive Humanoid Project (Informally, Poof)

Team Leader: Shehab Attia
Description: Poof is a cute, friendly-looking robot that is able to clean the classroom, interact with children, learn their faces and names, record vitals, carrie a first-aid kit, remind when it’s time for a child to take their medicine, and record medical activity over time. The robot should also be able to provide assistance to children with any type of physical impairment. Poof is also aware of the environment it is present in, providing basic safety functions, such as atmospheric composition and ambient temperature.
Time commitment: 4 hours/week.
Meeting Times: Tuesday & Thurdays 5-7pm.
Meeting Venue: Design Studio in Whitaker Basement.

Fall 2018 Completed Projects

Introductory Project

Team Leader: Jake Peloquin
Description: Work in a team of 5 to learn CAD modeling, 3D printing, machining, Arduino basics, circuity & programming by designing and building a hospital rover! Teams will learn skills in weekly meetings and then apply those skills while building their robots. A competition will be held at the end of the semester for best robot!
Time commitment: 2 hours/week.
Meeting Times: TBD.
Meeting Venue: TBD.

Fall 2017 - Spring 2018 Completed Projects


Team Leaders: Jake Peloquin
Description: The FootMouse provides a way for upper limb amputees to control a computer using only their feet! It uses an Arduino microcontroller, foot pedals, and a unique “foot mouse”. The user can click left, middle, and right mouse buttons with one foot, and move the cursor, scroll, and pan with their other foot. Surfing the web, photoshop, and even CAD modeling is possible with the FootMouse.

Fall 2016 - Spring 2017 Projects

Bedside Grippers

Special thanks to our Graduate Mentor, Henry Clever, for involving the team in his project!
We designed, 3D printed, built and programmed different shapes of end-effectors to help bed-ridden patients get about activities with a joystick!

Team Leaders: Ellen Cottingham, Tristan Wu
Mentors: Henry Clever, Zackory Erickson
Members: Caleb DiPrete, Jonathan Delemar, Kento Yamamoto, Kate Hardin, Josh Moore, Nick Riccardelli, Reina Betancourt, Vidhi Bhanderi, Shivam Patel.
