Robot Locomotion andPlant Platform


Introduction
Introduction

First Team in project line

Worked in conjunction with Navigation team

Two teams continuing through 2009-3


Project expectations and needs
Project Expectations and Needs

  • Robot carries and cares for a plant

  • Robot moves slowly

  • Promotes innovation and green values at RIT

  • Friendly to passing pedestrians

  • Test stand produced for Navigation team

  • Must be able to return home

  • Last an entire day of roaming


Interpretations
Interpretations

  • Two speeds required to move normally and turn

  • Needs high torque in order to overcome small obstacles and inclines in field

  • Return home mode should be manual

  • Dispense water when needed

  • Provide asylum for plant

~15 hr battery life

8.851 in*lb torque

2.3 Amp current draw

~130lb

Plow

  • 10 in/min

  • 15°/sec turning

  • 9 hr battery life

  • 5-15 in*lb torque

  • 2 Amp current draw

  • 50lb



Status
Status

  • Plowing robot

  • DC-DC board now fully operational

  • Chain skip occurs when over tightened from motor to transmission

  • Encoders implemented with improved ones on order

  • Software interface fully functional


Expectations of future teams
Expectations of Future Teams

  • Integrate Shell of robot with locomotion components

  • Final integration with Navigation components

  • Field testing

  • Facebook/Twitter

  • Improvements in quality of modular parts
