  1. Team 14: The Design and Construction of an Ackerman-Steered Robot Members: Kyle Quinn Julio Sosa Robert Steel Trevor Woods

  2. CISCOR Dr. Emmanuel Collins Vision “Use state-of-the-art technology to develop practical solutions to problems in systems, control and robotics for applications in industry and government.” Who is the Customer?

  3. Problem • Autonomous Robot • Ackerman Steering • Integrable • SICK laser • Electric motors • Control modules

  4. Scope To design, build, and test an autonomous Ackerman steered robot Customer Needs Ackerman Steering Basic weather protection 4-wheel independent drive All-terrain Project Scope

  5. Ackerman Steering 4” ground clearance 4-wheel drive Independent suspension 10mph+ top speed 100lb towing capacity Climb 30° incline 1 hour between charges Easy assembly Product specifications

  6. Ackerman Steering • Description • Wheels turn around different radii • Allows greater cornering stability • Better traction • Works well with supplied motors

  7. MacPherson Suspension • Pros • Simple • Cost Efficient • Increased Stability • Cons • Tall • Modified frame • Poor suspension travel

  8. Pros Time tested Greater travel Increased stability Adjustable Cons Expensive Complicated Double Wishbone Suspension

  9. Pros Increased space Good wheel travel Cons Less stable Non-standard frame Poor turning radius Trailing Arm Suspension

  10. Decision Matrix

  11. Robot Design Includes Ackerman steering Double wishbone suspension 4-wheel independent drive Basic weather protection Future Plans Integrate all subsystems Detailed dimension design FEM analysis Order raw materials Conclusion

  12. Questions?
