Detail of the student project

Topic:Extension of the experimental platform for magnetic manipulation Magman
Supervisor:Jiří Zemánek
Announce as:PTO
Description:The aim of this project is to extend the existing experimental platform Magman that uses an array of coils for manipulation of several steel balls. The platform is used mainly for research purposes but it is used also as an eye-catcher for presentation of cybernetics. Besides, it won Matlab student design challenge. See

According to the team preferences, the project can be focused on some of these topics
- Design of a new control board based on ARM Cortex from ST
- Distributed measurement of position - optical, magnetic, or other sensor
- System for planning of trajectories of several balls
- Videomapping - creating video images on the platform and the ball using a beamer - measured position, desired trajectories, magnetic field etc.
Max.number of students:4

Warning: the registration to the PTO can be canceled only by supervisor.
