Title: Ruby, the Rubik’s Cube-solving robot developed by Swinburne Bachelor of Science and Engineering students, 2011
Creator: Swinburne University of Technology
Date: 2011
Description: The world's fastest Rubik's Cube-solving robot has been developed by students at Swinburne University of Technology. The robot, named Ruby, can solve the scrambled puzzle in just over 10 seconds. It was built from scratch by six students as their final year project for the double degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics)/Bachelor of Science (Computer Science and Software Engineering). ‘Ruby works by scanning each face of a scrambled cube through a web cam. It then uses a software algorithm to develop a solution which is fed to the high-speed robot through a real-time embedded control system,’ said Professor Chris Pilgrim, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Information and Communication Technologies. The team comprised identical twin computer whiz kids David and Richard Bain, Daniel Purvis, Jarrod Boyes, Miriam Parkinson and Jonathan Goldwasser.
