Abstract [sv]

Som en avslutande del i kandidatarbetet inom mekatronik år 2013 gavs uppgiften att konstruera en robot åt pop-artisten Robyn. Arbetet är ett grupparbete där fem teknologer med specialiseringar inom olika områden samarbetar för att konstruera ett mera komplext, sammansatt system. De krav som ställdes var att roboten skulle kunna interagera, antingen med Robyn själv eller hennes publik. De begränsningar som fanns var tidsmässiga så väl som ekonomiska. I en förstudie identifierades viktiga nyckelord baserat på Robyn och hennes musik. Nyckelorden lades som grund för den efterföljande konceptgenereringen. Exempel på nyckelord var självständighet, folkkär, egensinnig och oväntad. Arbetet resulterade i en robot som kan kommunicera via Twitter, dansa i takt till omgivande musik samt skapa olika ljuseffekter. Hela roboten är byggd i ett hölje lånat från en gammal radio från 60-talet. Roboten är inte tänkt att vara en fulländad konstruktion utan illustrerar ett koncept med stor utvecklingspotential.

Abstract [en]

As a final part of the bachelor thesis in mechatronics 2013 the students were given the task to design a robot to pop artist Robyn. The work is a group project in which five students with specializations in different fields collaborate to construct a more complex, composite system. The requirements were that the robot would be able to interact either with Robyn herself or her audience. The project was limited by time as well as economics. In a preliminary study important keywords based on Robyn and her music were established. The key words became the basis for the subsequent concept generation. Examples of keywords are independence, publicly loved, headstrong and unpredictable. The work resulted in a robot that can communicate via Twitter, dancing to the beat of the music, and create different lighting effects. The entire robot is built in a housing from an old radio from the 60's. The robot is by no means a perfect design, but illustrate a concept with great potential.
