MAKING THE MOST OF IT

Sandra (LEFT) and DIT Design Studio Admin Assistant Aziza (LEFT) My name is Sandra Sommi, I am a third year student studying a Bachelor of Computer Engineering at the Dar es salaam Institute of Technology. My team and I were assigned the task of designing an automatic unmanned robotic system by our instructor, Dr. Simbeye as part of our course - Robotics and Intelligent Systems.  The primary motive behind this project is to design and fabricate an automatic robotic system that will operate automatically without any human intervention. The original idea was to implement an automatic robotic arm that will perform pick and place functionality. But later as a group we came up with the idea that the robotic system...

DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTONOMOUS MILK VENDING MACHINE

Q: Tell us about yourself. Who are you and what is your background? A: I am Jamal Akida (25), a Muslim graduate of the Dar-Es-Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT). I studied Computer Engineering and graduated in the year of study 2019/2020.I have extremely high attention to detail and love the challenges involved in technology (especially computerized systems) no matter how big or small – I also enjoy working as part of a team. Over the past four years, I have attended Industrial Practical Training (Field student) at different organizations where I used my knowledge to be a part in the design and implement software, hardware systems, and network configurations at the Institute of Judicial Administration (IJA) and TONTAN Technologies.

Expansion 3DP – A STUDENT BUILT 3D PRINTER

^Our team and the completed Expansion 3D We are a group of 5 final year Bachelors students in the department of Computer Studies. We are genuinely interested in everything that deals or works with computers, ranging from networking, electronics and software development. During the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021 around mid-December, we decided to build a 3D printer as part of our coursework assessment for a core module named Robotics and intelligent systems. Having no prior experience in building a 3D printer nor a significant knowledge of its operation, we first had to understand how CNC (Computer Numerical Control) laser or plasma cutter worked as a means of building a fundamental background that could ease the understanding and...
