Do you get hungry? Do you enjoy eating food more than you enjoy making food? If you answered “Yes!” to both of those questions, you’ll be happy to know that the future engineers of America have you covered.
Students from two Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Schools have integrated the sensing and control capabilities of the VEX Cortex Robotics system with the advanced articulation capabilities of the LynxMotion Robotics system to create highly capable (and delicious) assembly lines.
The first two videos are brought to us by students in a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) class at Kings High School in California.
Robotic Sandwich Factory:
Buttered Toast Factory (complete with real-life toaster):
The work behind the last two videos was done by students in another CIM class at Lancaster High School in New York.
Coffee Manufacturing Line:
Widget Assembly Line:
Well done to all the students involved, and to the instructors that inspired them. Keep up the great work!
