Autonomous chess robot created by Josh Eckels
Electronics and robotics enthusiasts looking for inspiration for their next project might be interested in this autonomous thoracic robot created by recent mechanical engineering graduate Josh Eckels. The thoracic robot combines artificial intelligence and elements of mechatronics, allowing you to test your chess skills against the opposing robot player on a life-size physical chess board. Watch the video below to learn more about the project, which includes mechanical parts created using 3D printers and Arduino hardware.
âYou create a challenge when you embark on a project like this. I wanted to go all the way and to my satisfaction, âEckels says, arranging the 32 black and white chess pieces in their starting position on the 64 square game board. âI really wanted to do something that sums up all my technical skills and what I’ve learned so far. I saw there a beautiful end of my Rose-Hulman career.
Fortunately, all I needed to develop this chess robot was right here on campus. All it took was extra time and effort to go from my original concept (to the winter course) to the final project, “Eckels said.” The MakerLab has been a great resource for me, as for the other students. I just found some space and went to work. Nobody has it. disturbed along the way. In fact, others, including several visitors to campus, came to admire what I was doing. This encouragement kept me going.
