Development of wireless mechanism to reduce wiring complexities of robot manipulator

Mohamed Abdel Aziz, Omar Abdel Aziz (2011) Development of wireless mechanism to reduce wiring complexities of robot manipulator. Masters thesis, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia.



Wires in the robotics system are used to connect between controllers and the DC power sources; these controllers include the microcontrollers, sensors and actuators. These wires that pass through the robot manipulators unnecessarily induce complexities which inhibit the manipulator flexibility. Wiring complexities consists of the control wires which are used to connect between controllers, and power source wires which conduct the current to the controller components. This research aims to reduce these wires complexities. Instead of control wires, a wireless voltage regulatory (WVR) module was developed. The WVR has the ability to form Bluetooth network between controllers integrated with an adaptive voltage regulation. The adaptive voltage regulation purpose is to control the DC motors or any other devices that require voltage regulation in the control system. It was attained by applying the fuzzy control. lnstead of Power source wires, a modification for the translational and rotational mechanisms design is proposed to conduct the DC power wirelessly. A physical model demonstrating the developed wireless module and the proposed mechanical modification was built, and its performance is presented. The contribution of this work includes enhancement of the robots manipulator flexibility, functionalities and applications by reducing wires complexities.
