Engineers of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created a robot carpenter from a vacuum cleaner


 AutoSaw

Engineers Robotics Laboratory of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence MIT created a carpenter robot that can become an assistant in case of shortage of hands.

The robotic system is called AutoSaw. It combines high quality work and unique customization options. Using a system of computer-aided design (CAD), users themselves decide what furniture they want to create, including the size, strength, and overall aesthetics.

After creating a digital model of the product, AutoSaw starts working. Using a modified robot Roomba, equipped with a jig saw, the system begins to cut out details of any shape and size. The functions of ancillary workers are performed by two Kuka youBot robots, which take and deliver the wood blanks to the cutting site. However, the final assembly of the parts produced by AutoSaw is performed by the user himself.

“Our goal is to simplify the manufacture of furniture,” explains MIT Adriana Schultz, a graduate student of MIT. – We are trying to expand the boundaries of the possibilities, so that users are not dependent on furniture made by well-known manufacturers, for example, Ikea. Instead, they can do what they need. “
