Ericson Mar's Robotics Homepage

Welcome to my homepage.  I am Ericson Mar, an alumni of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where I obtained a Masters in Mechanical Engineering.   Since then, I have been an advisor to the effort to incorporate an extensive robotics program into Cooper Union's curriculum.  In this page you will find some information on the robotics projects we have recently been involved in and links to other robotics-related sites that may serve as useful reference.  The above photo shows my own creation for my dissertation during my graduate studies.  Hopefully, you will find this site interesting and educational.  Perhaps it will help you through your robotics projects and your life goals too!


Projects


ME12 - Autonomous Mobile Robots (Fall 2018) - "Robot Tank Battle"  (See tank battle contest videos here!).
*** Robotics Students: I have final reports if you want to view them for educational purposes.  Email me.
*** There are assorted robot video DVD's and VCD's in the Prototyping Laboratory for your viewing pleasure.


     

     

        

  

        

                      

       

     

          


EID111 - Design Illusion and Reality (Spring 2007) - "Self-Replicating Habitats"

ARTISTS, ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS: WHERE WILL WE LIVE?
Imagining and Designing Self-Replicating Robotic Habitats
for Future Environments

“Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody else has thought.”

Cooper Union has some state-of-the-art research robots.  Shown above are Cooper Union's Activmedia  AmigoBot (we have 3!), Performance PeopleBot, Deluxe PeopleBot, and iRobot Magellan mobile robot platforms.
If you are interested in working on cutting-edge projects with these robots and our studio, please contact me, Adrianne Wortzel, or Prof. C. S. Wei.


My Masters Thesis Project

Robotics Projects That Were Under My Advisement

    ME363 - Advanced Mechatronics of Mobile Robots (Fall 2004) - A pilot of a new course to be added to the Mechanical Engineering curriculum!  Students who took this class used their knowledge to build a robot to compete in an International Robot Fire Fighting competition the following semester (They won Third Place in International Finals Standings!). See videos of their robot here!

    The Robotics Renaissance Project - Continuous project involving robots and theater.

    kiru.gif Kiru - Autonomous/telerobotic avatar robot exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art 's Data Dynamics (2001).  www.camouflagetown.tv   

    Dajung and Junior.jpg (82326 bytes) Dajung and Junior - A mother and baby robot project developed in Capstone Senior Mechanical Design (2000).

    vacuum.jpg (89898 bytes) Autonomous Vacuum Cleaner - An autonomous vacuum cleaner developed in Capstone Senior Mechanical Design (2000).

    spider.jpg (77555 bytes) Spider Robot - A six-legged walker robot developed in Capstone Senior Mechanical Design and Electrical Engineering Projects (2000).

    Legobot.jpg (22743 bytes) Mindstorms Dancing LegoBot - A dancing Lego Robot that was developed in Capstone Senior Mechanical Design (2000).

     Actor Robot - Another robot project by Juniors in Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering (1999) course.

    Tour Guide Robot - Robot project by Juniors in Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering (1998) course.
