MRISAR's Giant Basketball Shooting Robot Arm Challenge
or Human vs. robot!!
Human vs. Robot! Challenge Yourself!
Exhibit consists of a Robot Arm in a court that shoots basketballs automatically in a challenge of Human vs. Robot!
Along with controls for a human user to operate the robot arm, there are two digital countdown timer displays and two digital Score displays. One set for the human and one set for the robot.
Press the start button and a digital countdown timer begins for the robot as the arm starts to shoot baskets while another display counter keeps track of its score. The balls are continually returned to the base of the arm to be used to shoot again via a two way floor slant. When the timer ends the robot arm stops and the human user countdown timer begins, starting the same challenge of making baskets as the human controls the robot arm via the control panel which activates when the robot’s turn is over. Discover who can make the most baskets during the same timed intervals!
A countdown timer activates when the exhibit start button is pressed. As the ball passes through the hoop a sensor is tripped and a digital display counter registers the basket. When the timer stops the readout shows the score of who made the most hoops.
The robot arm has predetermined movements, force, and speed engineered elements that are designed into the mechanical, electrical, electronic and logic based systems to perform this task. A graphic panel relates how this robot is similar and yet different to a human’s brain, and nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. This relates to STEM education. This is highly educational and visually stunning. The exhibit is view-able from all sides making it an ideal mid-floor device. The arm has pressure sensitive and end of travel limits. It is especially designed with safety features and force limits. The arm is usable for any age range of visitor. It is made of light weight 6061 Aluminum. The arm is protected by limit controls and spring loaded for shock. The limit controls use simple logic to avoid over travel, as opposed to expensive and hard to repair computer guided systems. The exhibit is configured as a demonstration arm to illustrate handling applications for robotics.
The enclosure is made of light-weight aluminum framing, clear durable poly-carbonate and strong netting. This complete exhibit includes an electronic-electromechanical robot arm that is enclosed in its court, support electronics, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule. Approximate size 14.5 ft high at the highest point x 22 ft deep x 14 ft wide. At the front of the case the height slopes down to approximately 9 ft high.
