Abstract [sv]

Detta kandidatexamensarbete inom mekatronik behandlar många delar som kräver stort engagemang. Arbetet behandlar skapandet utav en scenrobot med interagerande och humanoida funktioner. Ett komplext arbete som nyttjar kunskaper inom flera mekatroniska discipliner. Skapandet av den humanoida scenroboten skulle göra det möjligt för Robyn att interagera med roboten och för roboten att interagera med publiken. Detta har uppfyllts genom att roboten blir levande vid rörelse, ögon och mun tänds tillsammans med ett bultande LED-hjärta. För att interagera med publiken kan roboten förmedla meddelanden genom en LED-matris. Roboten kan även röra sig vilket ger den ännu ett medium att interagera med sin omgivning på. Detta kan ses tillsammans med det klassiska humanoida robotansiktet och hjärtat som robotens fundamentala delar och är därigenom det viktigaste.

Abstract [en]

This Bachelor thesis in Mechatronics consists of many different parts which require great commitment. The following project report addresses the creation of an on-stage robot with humanoid functions and an ability to interact with its environment. The creation of the humanoid on-stage robot would make it possible for the artist Robyn to interact with the robot as well as her audience being able to interact with it. This is possible through a LED-display that communicates with the audience using written messages and a start-up sequence which involves Robyn. The start-up sequence consists of three stages, the first one being that Robyn touches the robot which initiates a string of LEDs that pulsates from Robyn’s arm towards the robot. When her string of LEDs reach the robot it wakes up and starts blinking. With the ability to move about the robot acquires yet another medium with which to interact with the audience. This, along with the classic humanoid robot face and the heart, can be viewed as the robots fundamental parts and therefore the most important ones.
