Project Description:The Land Vehicle for Education, or LVE, is a vehicular robotic
platform that is connected to the Modular Student Attachment (MSA). This project was
originally under the name of the Land Vehicle series but has since shifted focus to
developing an educational device for Mechanical Engineering Freshmen of the incoming
2013 class. This project is designed to teach Mechanical Engineering principles and
design concepts to the students by incorporating various components of the MSA, which
they will design, model, manufacture and assemble. The design and production of the
LVE is divided into three groups: Chassis/Power, Controls, and MSA.
Problem Statement:Create a vehicular robotic platform that can be attached to
an MSA. The design must be cost effective and have the ability to be produced in large
quantities. The MSA must also be developed to teach various aspects of the Mechanical
Mechanical Engineering Department

Mission Profile: A Typical LVE Run Cycle
The LVE will travel across a classroom, pick up a foam block off of a shelf. The LVE will then travel back across the room and place the block on another shelf. This
process will be repeated 2 additional time, for a total of 3 moved blocks. The following charts describe the movements of the LVE during these repetitions.

Mechanical Engineering students.
6. MSA must incorporate design aspects from
preexisting courses (Engineering Design Graphics
& Materials Processing).
7. MSA must be complex enough to support small
groups of students working at once.
8. MSA must build off of preexisting knowledge and be
easily learned by students.
