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
