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

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.

System Architecture

  • Customer Needs
    • LVE must be able to move about freely through the

use of wireless controls.

    • LVE must be cost effective enough to be produced

in larger quantities.

    • LVE must be well constructed and able to withstand

repeated use.

    • LVE must be reliable, requiring minimal repairs and


    • MSA must provide educational value to freshman

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.

Mass Production Breakdown

Cost Breakdown

  • In order to meet the mass production cost requirements,
  • the following component breakdown was used:
    •  10 LVEs (chassis and controls)
    •  10 MSA control boards
    •  30 MSA assemblies
  • This breakdown provides enough LVEs and controls to
  • support one single class of students, though there are enough
  • MSA assemblies to support an entire quarter worth of
  • students. Since the MSA was designed to be easily removed
  • from the chassis, the LVEs can easily be used throughout
  • multiple class sessions within the same quarter. The
  • individual MSA assemblies will allow the students to keep
  • their design intact from one class to another, reducing the
  • breakdown and start-up time for each class session.
