Abstract

APL sponsored a project for the Whiting School of Engineering Department of Mechanical Engineering capstone course, called Senior Design Project. A group of undergraduate seniors worked with APL staff as part of the course, to design and develop a system specified by APL. The students benefited from frequent personal interactions with the APL staff, while the APL benefited from the students ability to deliver results with a relatively small investment from APL. The project developed an actuator that was designed to fit within the space constraints of a small robot.
