A seminar presentation on ANIMATRONICS
3. • Animatronics is a mechanized puppet. It may be preprogrammed or remotely controlled.
• The animatronics may perform movements or it may be incredibly versatile.
4. • Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room,1963.
• Theme parks and
cinematography industry .

first use of Audio-Animatronics. using digital controls.
Tones were recorded onto tape, which on playback
would cause a metal reed to vibrate.
The vibrating reed would close a circuit and thus
operate a relay.
The relay sent a pulse of energy (electricity) to the figure’s mechanism which would cause a pneumatic valve to operate, which resulted in the action, like the opening of a bird’s beak.
At air pressure.
6. T HEME PARKS AND CINEMATOGRAPHY
New “analog system” involved the use of voltage
All individual actions were then rerecorded onto a single reel–up to ten actions, each activated by a different tone, could be combined onto a single reel.
7. Electronics is used in doing programming of these animated creatures.
It is done by controlling the voltage regulation.
It is also done by embedded microcontroller.
8. Animatronics puppet that is animated by means of
Actuators are responsible for various facial
Electronics and software provides synchronization of
sound and motion.
9. Step 1: Designing
Step 3: Mold making
Step 4: Armature Fabrication Step 5: Costuming
Step 6: Programming
Client and the company developing the animatronics decide what the character will be, its appearance total number of moves, quality of moves, and what each specific move will be. Budgets ,time lines etc.
Converting two-dimensional ideas into
This team can work from photos, artwork,
videos, models, statuettes and similar likenesses.
12. MOLD MAKING
This department creates the molds that will
ultimately produce the character skins.
Molds can be soft or hard, single or
multiple pieces, and reusable or non-reusable.
After the mold is finished and cured, it is ready for skin making. Fiberglass shells are simultaneously being laid up to form the body and limb shapes .
13. A RMATURE F ABRICATION
Each individual part requires a custom
design and fabrication.
Each of the robot’s movement axis point must have an industrial rated bearing to provide action and long life.
The technicians select those components
carefully in order to ensure the durability and long life .
The outfit has to allow for easy acces to
the character’s operating mechanisms. It must also “look” normal after movement has taken place.
The costume must be designed to provide
hundreds or thousands of operations without wearing out and without causing the skin areas(i.e. around the necks or wrists) to breakdown as well
Programming is the final step, and for
some animations it is the most
rewarding. Programming can be done either at the manufacturing facility or at the final installation site. In
programming, all the individual moves are coordinated into complex animated actions and it bring “life.”
Animatronics has now developed as a career
