For the past few months, I realized that I am so passionate in Aerospace Engineer. When I was a kid, I always wished to travel on the airplanes only because they can fly. Moreover, I got an opportunity and participated in a Vex Robotics competition in Thailand; we traveled by airplane. The flight was awesome, I saw beautiful clouds, tall mountains, and amazing landscapes. I have a bigger dream, and I wanted to become an Aerospace Engineer. I started to build my own simple RC airplane that will able to lift, turn, and land by itself. The components that I use to build the airplane are a 7.4V battery, step-down converter, jumper cables, DC motors, receiver, transmitter, landing-wheels, servo motors, propellers, and foam KT. Currently, I am trying to figure out how can I control the speed of the DC motors when the airplane is in the air. Even though it is completed, but I will try my best to find the solution that able to improve my RC-Airplane.
A few weeks ago when I was in Waseem’s ASE (engineering)I came up with an idea which was to build the robot arm. I was inspired by a youtube video, and I planned to create an exactly the same product as they did. It was not acceptable for me to copy the other’s work because I won’t learn anything new rather than promoting that person’s achievements. Moreover, three weeks ago I had finished with my first prototype which I built a really simple robot arm. Currently, I’m in the process of developing my product, and my goals are to use the standard components to build the robot such as 3D-Printing-Parts, Servo motors, Jumper cables, Bread-Board, Arduino, Power supply (5v), and Code. Lastly, I’m blissful to be apart of this project and I believe that in the future I will invent something new so that the world could benefit from it.
On Monday, August 14, 2017, I attended an engineering ASE (after school extension), guided by Waseem (our facilitator). My purpose was to build a fancy robot arm which used a multitude of standard components. The plan isn’t functioning because I’m a beginner, so I needed to raise up with a simpler design. Finally, I brought up with a new plan of constructing the robot arm which included servo motors, ice cream sticks, potentiometers and etc. Currently, I’m in the process of finishing up the product, and the desire of the robot is to lift the object up into the air (with weight requirement). In conclusion, this my first prototype of the robot arm, and in the future I will develop the concept and the robot will be able to lift the heavier objects.
