The ARAS-CAM Robot
Developed in the ARAS robotics research group, ARAS-CAM robot is a fast deployable suspended cable driven manipulator with three degrees of translational freedom. Owing to its large workspace and easy installation process, the robot is a suitable tool for performing video capturing tasks in sport fields or movie industries.
Software and Algorithms
ARAS-CAM is aimed to be a fast deployable robot. This agenda means that the robot should be robust against uncertainties; the instrumentations should be maintainable in the field and, the installation and calibration procedures must be fast and straightforward. As such, We, in the ARAS PACR group, are investigating novel and efficient algorithms to realize this goal.
Hardware and Components
The robot is comprised of mechanical structures whose movements are sensed through a network of sensors and controlled using servo actuators. These network of sensors and actuators are controlled by a hetrogenous real-time embedded system. Most of these hardware components and modules are designed and implemented in the ARAS PACR lab.
