NAO Humanoid Robots

With the set of Aldebaran's NAO Humanoid Robots at our lab, we conduct research into various aspects of bipedal robotics. We are also working to field a team at RoboCup Humanoids (Standard Platforms League).

 

 

NUSTBOT-3 Humanoid Robot

NUSTBOT-3 is the third in the series of Humnaoid Robots designed by researchers of RISE Lab. It is a 12 Degrees of Freedom human size (lower body) humanoid designed indiginously at RISE Lab.

 

 

Pioneer 3 - AT Mobile Robots

Equipt with Sick Lasers, Sonars, GPS, Pan-Tilt Binocular Vision Cameras and other accessories, the P3-AT mobile robots at our lab are used for a multitude of experiments in Motion Planning, Localization and Mapping, Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous driving and various other state of the art research domains.

 

 

Spidey

Spidey is a Hexapod Robot developed by researchers at RISE Lab. The lab is also working to domestically develop other multilegged robots with novel architectures and unique capabilities.

 

 

 

Talrik Jr. Pro Robots

The Microcontroller operated small robots are utilized for various experiments particularly in the area of distributed robotics.

 

 

 

LabVolt Servo Robotic Arm Systems

The Servo Robotic Arms are used experiments and projects in robot manipulation with a focus on industrial automation and flexible manufacturing. Peripheral equipment and accessories make it possible to emulate simple manufacturing setups comprising both electrically and pneumatically actuated systems.

 

Accessories

Cameras

Both Binocular and Trinocular sets of Bumblebee cameras manufactured by PointGrey Inc. are available at the lab. These are utilized for environment perception and modeling. Mainly, these are used as the 'eyes' of the Mobile Robots during various experiemnts. Other vision devices available at the lab include single camera sensors manufactured by PointGrey as well as CMU Cam 4 systems developed by Carnegie Mellon University, USA.

 

 

Brain Computer Interface

EPOC Emotiv (EEG Neuro Headsets) with Research SDK are utilized in various experiments for control of robots using a Brain Computer Interface. These include semi-autonomous steering / control of mobile robots and robotic arms for use of disabled individuals.
