Abstract

My research focused on the use of collaborative robots and the delivery systems which would be used to deliver them stock material. After visiting with Anderson Brass, which is a local brass manufacturer in Hartsville, SC and Integrated Systems Inc. located in Darlington, SC, I began to design a robotic automation system that could make the assembly line process more efficient and safer for the workers. I created two functional Lego mechanisms designed to work with the YuMi collaborative robot and its vision system. The final mechanisms demonstrate a work environment where collaborative robots would be able to do the dangerous portions of the assembly line process so that worker injuries would be reduced.
