The goal of this project was to create a device to place traffic cones. Conventional methods of traffic cone placement are dangerous and inefficient, so this design aims to improve road workers' safety and use of time. The design uses a fourbar linkage, pulley system, and specially designed gripper, which work together in a cyclical motion to remove cones from a stack and place them alongside a moving vehicle. Our team fabricated this device using stock metal and robotic parts. After testing, we created recommendations for further development.
