Pneumatiska artificiella muskler: med hjälp av en robotarm
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
According to the study  several firefighters are killed in action each year. This happens naturally in various ways. One of the major factors is that firefighters often do not know how the environment looks like, for example that a building in an industrial area contains hazardous gas cylinders. Without a solution, fire-fighters will continue to die in duty. It is therefore important to solve this problem so that we can minimize the risks and save lives.The goal of this project was a control system for pneumatic artificial muscles. To demonstrate that the desired functions of pneumatic artificial muscles worked properly, we created a simple arm with three degrees of freedom, with two muscles at each degree of freedom. The work consists mainly of pneumatic muscle, valves, programming and wireless communications. The focus was on controlling the robot arm using pneumatic artificial muscles.In order to achieve the arm to move to the desired position, we used wireless communication, the transmitter and receiver, and the pneumatic artificial muscles. This includes also programming, which was created on the programming language Spin.
