Integrating Quanser-developed QFLEX 2 computing interface technology, QUBE-Servo 2 provides more flexibility in lab configurations, using a PC, or microcontrollers, such as NI myRIO, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. With the comprehensive course materials included, you can build a state-of-the-art undergraduate teaching lab for your mechatronics or control courses, and engage students in various design and capstone projects.
The experiment is reconfigurable for various aerospace systems, from 1 DOF and 2 DOF helicopter to half-quadrotor. Integrating Quanser-developed QFLEX 2 computing interface technology, the Quanser AERO also offers flexibility in lab configurations, using a PC, or microcontrollers, such as NI myRIO, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. With the comprehensive course materials included, you can build a state-of-the-art teaching lab for your mechatronics or control courses, engage students in various design and capstone projects, and validate your research concepts on a high-quality, robust, and precise platform.
Same as the physical Quanser AERO, the virtual system is a dual-rotor helicopter model that can be reconfigured for 1 DOF attitude, 2 DOF helicopter, or half-quadrotor experiments. Rotary encoders measure the angular position of the propeller DC motors, the speed of the motors is measured through a software-based tachometer.
The durable, light-weight carbon-fiber frame makes the QDrone highly maneuverable and capable of withstanding high-impact applications with little downtime required for repairs. The powerful on-board processor, RGB-D and optical flow cameras enable high-quality on-board video processing, as well as streaming for real-time monitoring. The QDrone is only available as part of the Autonomous Vehicles Research Studio. Click here to learn more.
The Geomagic Touch haptic device is a robot with six revolute joints, three of which are actuated. The three non-actuated joints are the wrist joints. The three motors can actuate the end-effector - the tip of the stylus - to span the entire X, Y, Z region in its workspace. Position measurement along X, Y, and Z is done using digital encoders while measurement of rotations about these axes (roll, pitch and yaw) is done using potentiometers.
Designed in association with Prof. Karl Åström and Prof. Karl Henrik Johansson, the Coupled Tanks system consists of a single pump with two tanks. Each tank is instrumented with a pressure sensor to measure the water level. The pump drives the water from the bottom basin up to the top of the system. Depending on how the outflow valves are configured, the water then flows to the top tank, bottom tank, or both. The rate of flow can also be changed using outflow orifices with different diameters. The ability to direct water flow, together with variable outflow orifices allows for several interesting Single Input Single Output (SISO) configurations. Further, two or more Coupled Tanks can be combined together for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) experiments.
At the center of the research studio are two autonomous vehicles for air and ground: the QDrone and QBot 2e. The successor of the QBall 2, the QDrone is a quadrotor air vehicle equipped with powerful on-board Intel® Aero Compute Board, multiple high-resolution cameras and integrated sensors. On the ground, the QBot 2e is an innovative open-architecture autonomous ground robot, equipped with a wide range of built-in sensors and a vision system. Working individually or in a swarm, these are the ideal vehicles for your research applications.
