Animatronics is a cross between animation and electronics. Basically, an animatronics is a mechanized puppet. It may be preprogrammed or remotely controlled. An abbreviated term originally coined by Walt Disney as "Audio-Animatronics" (used to describe his mechanized characters), can actually be seen in various forms as far back as Leonardo-Da-Vinci's Automata Lion, (theoretically built to present lilies to the King of France during one of his Visits),and has now developed as a career which may require combined talent in Mechanical Engineering , Sculpting / Casting, Control Technologies, Electrical / Electronic, Airbrushing, Radio-Control. Long before digital effects appeared, animatronics were making cinematic history. The scare generated by the Great White coming out of the water in "Jaws" and the tender otherworldliness of "E.T." were its outcomes. The Jurassic Park series combined digital effects with animatronics.
It is possible for us to build our own animatronics by making use of ready-made animatronics kits provided by companies such as Mister Computers where no programming skills are required. Only knowledge of Windows is required.

What is an Animatronics ?
- Cross between Animation and Electronics
- Combination of the ancient art of
puppetry with modern electronic
- A type of special effect
Early Development
The First Modern Animatronics by Imagineer “Lee Adams”
Digital And Analog systems
Formation Of An Animatronics
Designing and Putting it on paper
Building Miniature model
Sculpture as big as life
Molding and Fabrication
Creature Creation
Putting it together
Painting and Costuming
Making it Move

- Puppeteers
- Telemetry devices
Electronics Components Used In Animatronics Controllers
Servo Controller - amplifier, produce extra power
Motor Controller - serves to govern performance of electric motors
Relay Controller - electrically operated switch
DMX Controller - controlling intelligent lighting equipments and related accessories
Sensors – receives and responds to signals. Measures physical quantity and converts it into a signal which can be read
Application Of Animatronics
Mainly used in entertainment field
To give special effects in movies
Animatronics creatures are used in disneyland to entertain visitors
Pros And Cons
Pros :

More realistic close-up shots.
Can lend a level of reality and texture to a film.
Can be used for entertainment in theme parks.
Pros And Cons
Cons :

Improper signals can interfere with the control signals
Any improper signal may be disastrous when dealing with a heavy creature.
Clean power is important for the same reason.
It is very time consuming and costly compared to computer animation.
Animatronics requires many special skills and technical know how
Animatronics has now developed as a career which may require combined talent in mechanical, electronics and control technologies and sculpting etc.
The realistic creatures that it can create are amazing and is rewarding to it’s creator

Animatronics were operated using digital controls
This digital system used pneumatic valves and were operated by air pressure.
The new "analog system" is devised which involved the use of voltage regulation.
The basic ways of programming a figure is done by using Transducer or Potentiometer.
It’s a combination of animation and electronics.
It is an mechanized puppet controlled either by program or remote.
It uses digital signals for the movement of the puppets.
Animatronic creatures often seem as real to us as their flesh-and-blood counterparts.
Designing process
Mold making
Armature Fabrication
Use the Control Panel to:
Test SSC/servo connections and functionality
Test the minimum bounds of your servos
Test the maximum bounds of your servos
Determine the "Home" position of your servos
Experiment with different speeds
Devise recording strategies and positioning techniques
