Stäubli TX 60 Industrial Robot under Wiimote Control

at 5:13 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Crazy Hacks, Game Hacks, Insane Equipment

 

If you have access to an industrial robot why not implement a Nintendo Wii Remote (Wiimote) to control it. The control it gives you would be more natural than the controls that the manufacturer gives you! Have a look at the other projects being worked on at the Robotics and Embedded Systems at the Technical University of Munich.

"This is a small presentation of a university project I have worked on for the last 6 months. Using a real-time system the orientation of the Wii Remote is polled and sent to the Stäubli TX 60 industrial robot. The concept is stolen from a game named Kororinpa but the graphics are little more realistic 🙂 This was done at the chair Robotics and Embedded Systems Knoll of the Technical University of Munich."

    Wiimotes are awesome. I’ve got one controlling my computer’s volume right now. Point it up and it gets louder, down and it gets quieter. 😀

    I am the one that programmed the robot, played the game and uploaded the video to YouTube. We originally wanted to attach a Gyro to the WiiMote but no student dared to do it, hehe. Now that Nintendo officially announced a Gyro, controlling robots should be a lot more fun 😉
