  • Robots and Extreme Environments
    buildings as they can be made to be more resistant to smoke and fire The local zoo has caught fire Two large bears are trapped inside a burning building You have to design and make a robot that can be used to rescue the two bears from danger Your task is to get you robot to approach the model house and extract the two teddy bears from danger You have to follow a black line to get to each bear When the robot has reached each bear it needs to grab it and return it to safety Design Process Design Process Before briging Read the article Four thoughts about Robots in extreme environaments What ere these four thoughts and how could you use these when designing your robot Watch the video Military robot dogs Is the movement more similar to a robot or animal Watch the video Dull dirt and dangerous Will people run out of dangerous jobs because robots take it over Watch the video Robots fire fighter Is this really a robot Follow this path to design your robot 1 How your robot will look like Where are the sensors where is the grabbing device Should robot be able to climb on ramps 2 Think about the algorithm First try to make the robot to follow a line How could robot detect a bear Would sonar be able to see the toy bear 3 Do the first two tasks and try to put together line following and bear detection 4 Speed is crucial in case of fire Faster robot is getting to bears the better Could you improve linefollowing to be faster Conclusion Conclusion You learned to build a robot in this assignment that would act like real rescue robot Main difference between your and real rescue is

  • Stop Thief!
    brief is as follows When motion is detected by a PIR sensor spot lights on the outside of the house will switch on and stay on for a set a period of time of approximately 2 minutes The PIR will provide a trigger to switch on spot lights the and they will stay on if the person that triggered the sensor stays in the area If after two mijnutes of time has elapsed there is no further motion the light will switch off If the person continues moving in the vicinity of the motion sensor it will then be triggered again and stay on for a further 2 minutes This cycle will continue as long as needed If the burgalar manages to enter the house lights will be switched on in any vacant room they enter and an alarm will sound Design Process Design Process Intorduction tasks Start by w atching the four you tube video on Home Security Top tips What are the main things to avoid reccomended in the video made by the West Midlands Police List the 10 tips the police reccomend for beating the burgalar Watch the video on different type sof surveilance camera Check the local national laws about using surveliance cameras Watch the video Through the eyes of a burgalar What are the main things a burgular looks for when planning a break in What is the main thing a bugular would avoid Draw a plan of your own house the school or the classroom and place on the plan the best place for your security systems labelling each component Construct a simple model in card of the building you have chosen and its surrounding area Hardware Make a flow logic diagram of how you think the system will work Choose PIR sensor Choose

  • Can your robot lift the dangerous liquid?
    up and move the liquid Design Process Design Process Your design process will be in two stages Stage 1 Prototype Use the document How to make a mechanical robot hand pdf to help you make a prototype robot hand You will learn about the mechanisms required and how these are similar to human hands You can also watch Video 2 to see an example of the hand being moved Can you see the nylon cord tendons pulling the fingers to bend them Wiggle your fingers and you will see the tendons in your wrist moving Watch Video 3 to see NASA s Robonaut2 moving its fingers What are the similarities to your prototype in how it moves Stage 2 Adapt your design and make After you have successfully created your prototype hand you need to create your own version which is capable of picking up the cup of liquid Try picking up a cup of liquid with your prototype to see how much weight it can carry How well does it work Which parts of the prototype robot hand do you need to change to the make them more robust so they can pick up at least 250 grams How big should your new robot hand be What material should you make the hand out of Thicker cardboard plastic wood metal Watch Video 4 to see an example of a metal hand created using the same method as your prototype Will the rubber bands be strong enough to hold the weight Should you also make a different shape cup that the robot can handle more easily Conclusion Conclusion You have now created two mechanical robot hands and hopefully will have lifted the dangerous liquid too We will start to see robots with hands like this being used even more in
