fire fighting home robot contest
Fire-Fighting Home Robot Contest

Trinity College in Hartford Ct.

Contest Rules

April 10th – 11th 2010

Team of 4 MEs and 1 EE

challenge
Challenge

Team must build a totally autonomous robot.

Once turned on the robot will navigate through a simulated house.

Robot must detect a fire (candle) and extinguish it.

Extra Challenges(uneven floor, random door placement, random candle placement, furniture, return trip, etc.)

competition scoring
Competition Scoring

Score = Time Score x Room Factor x Operating Modes

Time Score = Total time to extinguish candle

Room Factor = Number of rooms inspected

Operating Modes = Various extra challenges activated for the trial run

Total Comp. Score= Score 1 + Score 2 + Score 3

final score
Final Score
  • The Best Unified Robot Performance (BURP)
    • 25% Poster Contest
    • 25% Robot Olympiad Exam
    • 50% Competition Score
design constraints
Design Constraints

Robot must fit inside a box with a base of 31cm x 31cm and height of 27cm

There is no limit to the robot’s mass or material used, so long as there is no danger to teams, spectators or judges.

To detect the flame and navigate through the house any form of sensors may be used.

electrical aspect
Electrical Aspect

Decide upon a microcontroller that will work well with our robot and has many I/O slots for sensors and monitors.

Program the microcontroller to control the navigation of the robot.

Program the microcontroller to analyze data and use data to move towards the fire (candle).

common challenges
Common Challenges

Getting stuck on walls, corners or doorways.

Calibrating sensors for performance (ie. knowing when the sensors give false readings)

Adaptability to different courses

Robot’s Logic

TIME!!!

last year s design
Last Year’s Design

Treads

4 Position Sensors

1 UV Sensor

1 Infrared Sensor

Programmed using LabView

Aluminum Shell

CO2 Extinguisher

last year s weaknesses
Last Year’s Weaknesses

During Competition the team set their robot to a speed, which was previously untested and as a result incurred penalties.

Unreliability of extinguisher due to calibration

Not enough time to properly test all aspects

fixing last years weaknesses
Fixing Last Years Weaknesses

Fabricate the robot sooner as to leave more time for trouble shooting and debugging.

Design a more accurate and reliable extinguishing device.
