This project was done over the course of 2 months by students from Temasek Polytechnic.


In the year 2012, Horiuchi lab members had done research regarding the robots being controlled using Kinect.

When we arrived, we followed their sample programs and learnt how to create hit test areas in openCV. After that, we learnt from Professor Horiuchi about how to implement kinematics into the robot.


The robot program, written in either embedded C or RoboPlus, is used to store movements. Then, the control program, written in Visual C++ with the Kinect SDK, is used to send the instructions over to the embedded C or RoboPlus program to do a specific set of stored movements. Once the robot receives that instruction, the robot then executes that motion.

This project is made successful thanks to:
