First Student-Led Lunar Rover: Iris Rover

First Student-Led Lunar Rover: Iris Rover

Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute has developed the first student-led lunar rover, the Iris Rover, ready to start its journey to the Moon next year. Image credit: Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute The rover secured to the decks of Astrobotic's Peregrine Lunar Lander is said to be the smallest and lightest rover ever made to land on the Moon to collect data from the Moon's terrain and its rock formations. More than 200 CMU students worked on this over in the span of 3 years, and it is now close to its success. Watch the preparation of this space robot…

Other Explicit Representation for the Orientation in Robotics: Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles

Other Explicit Representation for the Orientation in Robotics: Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles

In the previous lesson, we learned about Euler Angles Representation which is one of the ways to explicitly represent an orientation. This lesson will continue with explicit ways to represent the orientation, and we will learn about Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles. This lesson is part of the series of lessons on foundations necessary to express robot motions. For the full comprehension of the Fundamentals of Robot Motions and the necessary tools to represent the configurations, velocities, and forces causing the motion, please read the following lessons (note that more lessons will be added in the future): https://www.mecharithm.com/category/learning-robotics-mechatronics/fundamentals-of-robotics-course/fundamentals-of-robot-motions/ Also, reading some lessons from the…
