Now what is this website all about?

Welcome to our website. We are a team of four students at Carnegie Mellon University, and we took 18-578: Mechatronic Design in Spring 2012.

Mechatronic Design is a class that combines the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering and Computer Science to create robots in semester-long projects.

This semester, one of the projects was to create a robot that can put shingles on a roof. On this website, we share some insights in how our group built such a robot.

Learn about our ideas and decisions in “Design Concept”. “Pictures” contains some nice pics of the robot and components. Wanna learn about us? “Team B – Shingaling” – that’s us! Finally, make sure to check out our CAD model and explanatory video under “Videos”!
