When I was in the third year at university, our team was assigned to a small project that required to design a Kinect scanner in order to implement 3D model of things. To simplify the task, we used the software Kinect SDK beta to construct the 3D model. At rest, we built electrical and electronic system, desgin mechanical system, built a prototype and control it.

To control the prototype, we decided to use open loop control as you can see in Fig. 1.

The prototype is showed in Fig. 2.

Honestly, the purpose of design was just for things whose weight lie in the range from 1 to 2.5kg. We used a box to test and the results are showed in Fig.3 and Fig. 4.

If you enjoy the project, feel comfortable to contact me for more detail.
