Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Robotics System Integration

Team AIM (AUtomation in Motion) will design and implement a robotics workcell at LSSU's Robotics Lab. The workcell, which will include 3 new Fanuc robots, will serve as an industry-like training platform for LSSU Engineering students and as a station to demonstrate robotics processes for visitors. The project will involve the newly purchased ROBOGUIDE simulation software which will be used as a tool to develop and present an assembly demonstration process that will showcase the various automation technologies that will be incorporated in the workcell.

The project was to develop a mobile application to work on smart phones via Bluetooth to replace an old, bulky pendant used for moving autonomously-guided vehicles manually. The idea was not to be able to do it remotely, but simply eliminate the cost of the pendant. The project consisted of two stages: (1) Learn the Android Software Development Kit; (2) Develop a marketable application. The safe operation of the vehicle was critical.
