Hello,

Just like the title suggests, I am looking for DIY project ideas, that involves Thermodynamics, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligent.

I would like to use C++ and Simulink.
And I am able to purchase components, e.g. Raspberry Pi and electrical components.

If you have any ideas for a project, please let me know.

Sounds really interesting. Please elaborate if you have any further details. I would keep it at less than life-sized though. :D

Well, there are probably better ideas, but it's the first thing that came to mind given the mix of subjects you want to include.

What do you know about Maxwell's Demon so far? Do you know what the purpose of it was supposed to be? Do you know if it has ever been successful?

You could build a machine to try to carry out the Maxwell's Demon function (how best to do that would be up to your creativity), and use AI learning to try to optimize its actions. Then show what the maximum efficiency seems to be after optimization...

So the second law of thermodynamics states that, that the entropy of a substance that is isolated, always increases.

And by having an isolated system seperated by a "trap door", turning it into two systems, and opening and closing the trap door at given circumstances could reduce entropy?

Sorry for my slow reply. How far have you gotten on your project so far?

It's been long enough since I studied the 2nd Law that I'll leave comments about it to others, but as for the project, I was meaning something like this:
