Problem statement
Problem Statement

  • First Response

  • Personnel Safety

  • Rescue attempts

  • Enter and Exit Strategies


Background
Background

  • Remote Controlled Toy Hummer

  • UGV – Unmanned Ground Vehicle

    • Military operations

    • Gather information about environment

    • User can control/observe situations from a distance

    • User can analyze the data from the UGV to create a well planned entry and exit strategy


Background1
Background

  • Disable RF Connection

  • Internet is Everywhere

  • Why WiFi Connection?

    • More Accessible

    • Longer Range

    • Simpler implementation scheme for video transmission

Testing implementation implementation problems
Testing/ImplementationImplementation Problems

  • Control API

    • Onboard PC containing software control interface (Control API) interfaced to a Microcontroller through RS-232. Microcontroller is interfaced to vehicle motors via an H-Bridge and to steering servo via microcontroller PWM output.

  • Remote Control

    • Onboard PC supporting WIFI. PC runs server software allowing client software on remote PCs to connect and access the features of the Control API.

Testing/ImplementationImplementation Problems

  • Odometry

    • Optical Mouse

  • Mapping Physical Environment

    • Sonic Rangefinders

  • Automation

    • Onboard PC server software with added automation wrapper for the Control API with features accessible to connected client software.
