Adamson CPE’s “Dancing Robot” on ‘Magandang Umaga, Bayan’
June 9th, 2007 posted by JB under Current Events

Recently, Computer Engineering students and their works, the “Dancing Robot” and the “Robotic Wheelchair” were featured by Kim Atienza on ABS-CBN’s Magandang Umaga, Bayan. The YouTube video follows.

These “inventions” were also covered by TV Patrol and were in fact part of this year’s CPE Exhibit.

In 1995, I got acquainted with a group of robotics and CpE students who got a gig building the character robots in Star City. If you went to Star City in late 1995, the robotic hydraulic dinosaurs and elves you saw there were built by Adamsonians. But that was 12 years ago; I wonder if the present crop of students are lending more decision-making and navigation skills on their robots. But judging from the interview, the robots were pretty much straightforward hydraulic contraptions, like what the kids were doing more than a decade ago. They’re more like metal puppets.
We can’t really blame these students for not knowing any better, but what I’m pointing at is this: you can see you have students whose research talents the university can nurture, so why not challenge them some more and push it higher. Why not make them try playing with something like Microsoft’s Robotic Studio next time; they might enjoy it. And they might even be able to create far more beautiful, awesome things.

I am currently a 4th year Computer Engineering student at Adamson University and I hope my thesis project will be displayed here also. LOL!

That “dancing robot” is cool but I am more impressed on last year’s robot project “ASTRO”.

ASTRO is a wireless robot which can be controlled via WI-FI and can cover the whole floor area of OZ building (100 meters max). It has voice command capabalities (could receive environment’s sounds, talk and reply with the help of the user’s voice), a camera (which displays on the user’s monitor) and raise his arms (though the fingers are not detailed and it can move only through its wheels).

ASTRO is 40,000 pesos worth ran by 2 motherboards and complicated circuitry with galvanized steel body. It’s program was made in Visual Basic 6.0.

Microsoft’s Robotic Studio is good but the Computer Engineering department demands students to create a design project ran by their OWN software.

astro looks cool. doesn’t the group have a website somewhere that showcases it?

the dancing robot, frankly, looks like those dancing toys you see every christmas season in divisoria.

if you and your friends are working on your CPE theses, feel free to post about them here, the more detailed the better. but then maybe that puts a lot of pressure on you guys to produce something that’s really good. =D

Sadly, ASTRO is now locked in CPE Dispensing Room or somewhere.

Don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted. I haven’t posted this year’s theses because the ones I am expecting were “short” of the deadline for the CPE booth and was never displayed at school.

I even saw a meta-crawler “Robo-Spider” .

I’m currently a 3rd year IT student and was shocked to see that there is a site for adamsonians. Anyways, I can’t view the embedded YouTube I don’t know why maybe it’s a year ago, so I just searched manually on youtube and have watched the “Dancing Robot” doing what he is supposed to do. I must say it’s good enough for a student. I don’t know how it was created, I didn’t even know that it can be done using VB6. So it’s an eye-opener for me as an IT student. Hope IT and CpE could collaborate more or if not, should start now.
