The Department of physics participated at the Nairobi Innovation Week event that happenned from 5th to 7th August, 2015. On display at our departmental booth were some of the innovations that our undergraduate and postgraduate students have come up with after attending some of our courses, like the Bachelor of Science in Applied Microprocessor and Instrumentation course. Among them was a robotic arm, controlled using a wirelessly connected joystick. Both the control board and the joystick boards were implemented using the modern ARM-based Freescale micro-controllers. FreeRTOS was used to create a real-time firmware running in both boards. The robotic arm is a basis KIT for learning robotics. This a step forward in demonstrating the level of preparedness of our graduates to work in a problem solving environment armed with relevant skills and able to utilize mordern embedded systems development tool-sets to come up with custom solutions for specific problems.
