Robotic inventions built by the Engineering students of the Adamson University were released on "Umagang Kay Ganda" (UKG). One of the major inventions made by the students was a talking female humanoid robot, which could listen and reply to simple queries made either through speech or using a chatting interface.
The robot was built based on a combination of innovative technologies including artificial intelligence.
Another useful invention that was built by the Adamson’s robotics team included a remotely controlled roving robot that was capable of climbing a staircase and detecting gas leaks. This sensor equipped robot could check and monitor the level of combustible gases. The robot feeds the data to a remote monitor that displays the message as “tolerable”, “warning”, or “dangerous”.
Students also built a remote controlled robot, equipped with headlights and a 360° rotating camera, to conduct surveillance operations on uneven terrain. The robot can ascend and descend at ease and send out audio and video feeds on a regular basis to a monitor. The wheels of the robot, function similar to that of a tank, and are sturdy enough to traverse through rugged terrains.
Adamson’s also came out with a geo-exploration robot that was inspired by NASA’s Mars rover. This mini-rover featured a built-in loader as well as a robotic arm to gather soil specimens from geological surveys. This all-terrain robot also comes equipped with infrared night vision cameras and LED lights to deliver live video feeds.
The three -wheel human transporter, which resembled a push scooter, was another robotic invention made by the students. This fully motorized, step-on vehicle was capable of carrying a maximum load of up to 100 kilograms. This robotic system could be activated using a PIN code and could be used in applications that require detection capabilities in order to prevent collisions.
