Attention Makers


Ball Bot

MAKERS: Aneeq Manzar

This project is a feedback control system in form of a robot which utilizes the concept of dynamic stability to remain upright, balanced on a ball and could move in any direction. It uses feedback control theory to actuate the ball and balance, rather than relying on gravity and a large wheel base.The ball therefore acts as the single spherical wheel, allowing the robot to travel in any direction. In contrast to traditional robots, which rely on a low Center of mass and large wheel-base to remain upright. Due to which their performance is also limited. It has many real world applications as in industries it can be used as an agile transport robot carrying heavy objects. Moreover it can be used as a human assistive robot in industries helping technicians distributing their load.
