Description

Mixed Reality (AR) interface based on Unity 3D for intuitive programming of robotic manipulators (UR3). The interface will be implemented within on the ROS 2 robotic framework.

Note: This project is also offered under the Integrated CPS project course or as B.Sc or M.Sc. Thesis

Qualifications

  • Basic skills in Python or C++
  • ROS
  • Unity3D or C#
 
Keywords: Augmented Reality, Robotic Interfaces, Engineering, Graphical Design

Duration

Minimum 3 months. Preferably 5-6 months.

Abstract

Robots will become a necessity for every business in the near future. Especially companies that rely heavily on the constant manipulation of objects will need to be able to constantly repurpose their robots to meet the ever changing demands. Furthermore, with the rise of Machine Learning, human collaborators or ” robot teachers” will need a more intuitive interface to communicate with them, either when interacting with them or when teaching them.

In this project we will develop a novel Mixed (Augmented) Reality Interface for teleoperating the UR3 robotic manipulator. For this purpose we will use AR glasses to augment the user’s reality with information about the robot and enable intuitive programming of the robot. The interface will be implemented on a ROS 2 framework for enhanced scalability and better integration potential to other devices.

Outcomes

This internship will result to an innovative graphical interface that enables non-experts to program a robotic manipulator.

The intern will get valuable experience in the Robot Operating System (ROS) framework and developing graphical interfaces on Unity. The student will also get a good understanding of robotic manipulators (like UR3) and develop a complete engineering project.
