  • Delivery Robot
    a delivery robot By adding camera sensors and connectivity the robot can be made fully autonomous and also remotely controllable for difficult to pass through areas Design Task Task involves building a robot platform which moves on wheels and has a drive system motors controller which is controlled by either computer or microcontroller Robot platform has to be able to move on flat ground and up to small slopes Depending on the available components the robot can be fully autonomous or remotely controllable by human operator with a camera and real time communication Functional robot is then put on a track which consists of start and end points Between these two points different obstacles can be found that robot must avoid and pass Design Process Hardware Find similar solution and study theory or working principles Choose robot platform motors and controller to drive motors Decide the type of computing power the robot needs microcontroller or computer Decide the type of sensors or camera to use with the chosen computing platform Make wiring diagram to connect sensors or camera to computing platform Connect sensors or camera to the computing platform Check again if all devices are connected right Program the computing platform to run pre made delivery robot software Software Install a suitable programming environment for chosen computing platform Test if example code in programming environment can be compiled and run on the computing platform Check if program and entire solution meets requirements Other Make documentations and user manuals Conclusion This delivery robot platform demonstrates how simple mobile robots work and what the key components they need are These robots can be controlled autonomously or through remote connection Because delivery robots in reality are meant to drive on streets among people then for safety it is necessary to have a remote

  • Smart Greenhouse
    soil on the basis of the readings of soil moisture sensors collecting sensor readings and controlling regulators logging sensor readings into a database and displaying them graphically wireless interconnection of modules using alternative energy solar and wind energy for heating the irrigation water and recharging the batteries feeding the plants and adjusting the lighting auxiliary functions related to power supply computer communication security Design Process Hardware Find similar solution and study theory or working principles Sketch a drawing of the system with all of the input and output devices to get overall picture of what is needed Determine the environmental parameters and control conditions required for growing the plant Then choose the sensors according to the parameters Choose the actuator devices required for opening the greenhouse hatches and ventilation Choose a pump that will be able to water the plants in the greenhouse with a sufficient amount of water Choose microcontroller board for input output control and smart controller board for monitoring Determine the data exchange protocol used by sensors that were chosen and find out how to actuate these data exchange protocols on a microcontroller and if which existing software libraries can be used Choose a communication solution between smart greenhouse controller and server Give the reasons for your choice and draw the corresponding schemes Make electrical schematic to connect all sensors and actuators Make wiring to connect sensors actuators and controller board according to schematic Check if all devices are connected right Connect controller to start programming Software Install a programming environment which is suitable for chosen controller Check if connection is established between PC and microcontroller board Draw a program algorithm flow chart Implement a program according to the algorithm Establish communication between microcontroller board and Smart Controller Board Write program to collect data and send commands

  • How to make robot move? Part 1
    Make groups of two students 2 Define a starting and end points Then design a path you want your robot to travel from the start to the end Start from an easy route Teacher can help you to design the first track 3 Use the moving algorithm document documents section on the right to design the command lines instructing the robot to travel the path Remember The robot should be able to avoid obstacles while moving Be precise because robots take commands literally and can execute only the commands that are given 4 Now it s time to test your command lines One student gives commands according the command algorithm and the other student acts as a robot and moves literally as the command line tells 5 How did you succeed 6 If you run into problems i e the robot run into an obstacle or did not follow the designed path you need to revisit and modify the command line After that try executing the command lines again You should repeat this stage until you succeed with the task i e the robot can travel the desired path without running into obstacles You can ask help from you classmates or even ask the whole class to debug the command line and get the code working 7 Once you succeed congratulations You can now design a more challenging path or you can also try executing routes and commands designed by other pairs Conclusion After you have tested command lines in practice have a discussion What did you learn about coding and command line How did the robot know how to move What was easy and difficult You can now try the next step and carry out the part 2 of this Roboquest Can robots do anything if humans can determine

  • How to make robot move? Part 2
    group what kind of bread you want to produce What fillings you want to your bread Start designing your command line with algorithms remember every command has to precise so that your cooking robot knows what to do and in which order algorithms may be found on the righ panel section Documents 4 Real coders perform test runs with their code before they execute it with real objects such as robots Test with your team does your first command line work properly You may for example test with your team does your command line get a butter jar opened Once again remember that robots can execute purely and simply the commands they have been given One student can be a coder that gives commands to other student who plays a robot 5 Did your test run succeed If not can you define in which part the robot did something wrong You can now fix your command line Finding errors from your command line is called debugin Your team can run now a second test run Does the command line work now any better 6 If your command line works as it was designed to your team can now inform your teacher that your group is ready to execute the real preparation of sandwich with cooking robot Your teacher shall be the cooking robot 7 Did your cooking robot work as it was designed in your team Did you get all the fillings you wished for If not were there still some problems with your command line You may try to debug your command line with your classmates Did you finally get your sandwich done by a robot Conclusion After you have tested groups command lines in practice have a discussion How did the sandwich robot know what to do How
