Project 1 - Chess Gaming

This project is to develop a smart phone (iOS/Android) chess gaming App. There are two parts in this project. First, writing a chess engine with good AI. The chess engine can be using Game Tree search or using Deep Neural Network(similar to AlphaGo). Second is to interface with the robotic arm to move the chess. The app will use smart phone camera to find the chess position and after the analysis of the chess engine to decide the next move.  The user interface will include UI to control the robotics arm movements such as placing the gripper to particular X,Y,Z or home position, start/stop stepper torque. Controlling the robotics arm is via BlueTooth LE and passing G-code to it. As students may need to modify the robotic arm to improve the mechanical structure, tutorials on 3D printing and modelling will be given.
