Vietnamese students make multi-functional robot at $800

Sunday, February 25, 2018, 16:04 GMT+7

Two students from one of the leading universities in southern Vietnam have spent around VND20 million (US$800) successfully creating a robot that can be used in various jobs.

Le Ha Anh Khoa and Nguyen Quang Vinh, majors in control and automation engineering at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, which financially supported the project, have achieved an excellent score of 9.67/10 for the product.

The robot has six legs and is complicated in terms of mechanical structure and control.

It is expected to be utilized in such activities as machine work, flight simulation in aerospace, or serve as an artillery platform and mechanical arms in surgery.

Specifically, the complex contraption can help form difficult parts of a machine; perform 3D printing; lift the chamber for training pilots; assist doctors in sewing up a wound, dealing with malpositioned teeth and carrying out remote surgery, according to Khoa, one of its creators.

The machine sits in a room of the students’ faculty to facilitate research in aerospace engineering and act as a model which students of the following generations can learn from.
