Laboratory for Dynamics of Machines and Structures 
3D printed robot

3D printing technology can be used for the creation of structural as well as stimuli-sensitive components. 3D printing in the combination with classical electrical components (resistor, Arduino, electromotor) thus enables the creation of a robot with sensing abilities. The goal of the thesis is the creation of a 3D printed robot with 3D printed embedded piezoresistive strain sensor. The thesis is appropriate for candidates who enjoy programming, designing mechanical components, practical work and are interested in 3D printing.
