  1. P11216 – Wandering Ambassador (Part VI) Customer: Stan Rickel Nick Leathe– Mechanical Engineer Anna Gilgur – Mechanical Engineer Rui Zhou – Electrical Engineer Ken Hertzog – Computer Engineer Joe Stevens – Software Engineer Phillip Gibson – Software Engineer Dave Lander – Software Engineer

  2. Project Description: • Goal: • Debug and complete the Wandering Ambassador robot for the Imagine RIT innovation festival. • Project Objectives: • Develop autonomous software • Complete upgrade to robot • Find and repair bugs

  3. Modularity • Fully modular bolted connection architecture Inherited Design • Safety • Chain guards • Emergency stop buttons • Bumper System • Enclosure • Transparent & water resistant electronics box • Sensor Suite • Sonar • Infrared • Bump • Photodiode • GPS • Accelerometer • Moisture sensor • Temperature • Motor Encoders • Transport • Collapsible handle • Drivetrain disengagement

  4. Electronics Architecture High Level Control / Decision Making Input / Command Interpretation Input / Output Devices

  5. Navigation System • Successful detection and avoidance of objects in a 5 foot range • Integrates: • Servos • Sonars • Bump Sensor

  6. Completed Improvements: • Sprayer Nozzles • Sonar Vision Increased • More Plants • Software Upgrade

  7. Project Status • Design Meets Customer Needs • Mechanical Systems • Completed on schedule • Electrical Systems • 4-5 weeks behind schedule • Software Package • Delayed due to Electrical setbacks • “Apathetic Wanderer” completed for ImagineRIT • Overall Cost: $500 under budget

  8. Future Work • Complete electrical systems to allow for full integration of attached features • Further development of personality modules • Creation of outdoor home as a shelter for fully autonomous wandering • Social networking integration to raise awareness of self-sustaining energy • Complete thorough testing of features to prove robustness of design
