After some discussions with the responsible people and after knowing more about the university's interrests I made a decision for my thesis subject. I stayed away from the artificial intelligence side of robotics (that is for later!) and sticked to the mechanical stuff. It was a subject they proposed and I think it is a good start for me in the field of robotics.It is about engineering and building a robotic gripper using universal grippers (from scratch). The goal is to pick up as many things possible with a 2 or 3 fingered gripper design making use of the universal gripper system (http://www.gizmag.com/universal-robotic-gripper/16729/) in each finger and/or palm. It must be able to hold all kinds of objects from the environment. I should also think about a way of controlling it as user-friendly as possible (with a glove, buttons, joysticks,...).I'm already looking forward to it and I hope I can use the Arduino platform for this 'project'. Of course I hope to get some useful results but first I should think about finishing this year with no problems .@ TND,What did you choose for your endwork? Thanks for the news sites links, I added them to my 'daily check' list.
