Paper details: 200 words for the Abstract, 200 words for the Introduction,200 words for the Problem statement, 200 words for the Objective. We have designed a project using robotic arms, please read the attached documents to understand what our projects idea is. Project: Create a task for the robots to complete together. Guidelines: You must use Matlab to complete the project. (Robots must be Computer programed through matlab, their movements are put into matlab as “PSEAUDO CODE”, so that the robot moves the way it should move) You need to use at least 3 sensors on each robot. You may use more than three, and you may use other types of sensors. Any sensor may be used by more than one robot. The task should require all team robots to complete. They may work simultaneously or sequentially. They can be controlled all by one computer, or each by its own computer. Please see attached executive summaries and gantt charts, so that you can see what our project is all about.

Project 2 Proposal

Project Idea

Team 10 has decided to build a project using three robots that will work together to complete acertain task. The task that was decided is to have place the robots on a set of steps that go downward. The first robot will pick up the ball from the lower step to the next stair step. The second robot will then pick up the ball and place it into a sling shot. The slingshot is pulled back and released by the third robot. This is done by tying the wool sling to the robotic arm, the robot will then pull the sling against a blade that will tear the sling and thus release the ball. The ball will be released from the catapult and thrown into a basketball hoop. If the ball goes through the hoop, a buzzer is sounded.

The proposal is that the machine will be used as a basketball arcade game.

Construction Work

The production of work that needs to be built is a set of steps for the robots to pass the ball up to give the ball some height. Next, is a catapult that will be responsible for throwing the ball. After building the catapult, construction of the basketball hoop will start. Their also needs to be a sturdy underground for the set up to take place.

Background

To build the catapult you need glue wooden Popsicle sticks together in a rectangle to build a base. Then you glue three that are attached to the bottom frame that come together in the middle to form a triangle. Then a stick with a bucket on the end is attached to the bottom frame and rubber band is wrapped around the top of the triangle and around the stick about half way to the bucket. When used the catapult holds the ball in the bucket and throws the ball when the stick pulls down on the rubber band and the elasticity slings the bucket up causing the ball to be thrown.

Engineering 102, Dr. Hamrick, Fall 2016 Project 2

RobotProgramming Using an Arduino Controller and Matlab

This project is open ended, and allows you to use your imagination to have the robot do any task or series of tasks that you wish. There are some guidelines, but otherwise you can do nearly anything you like.

Part B: (50%)  Group:

Create a task for the robots to complete together.

Guidelines:

You must use Matlab to complete the project.

You need to use at least 3 sensors on each robot. You may use more than three, and you may use other types of sensors. Any sensor may be used by more than one robot.

The task should require all team robots to complete. They may work simultaneously or sequentially. They can be controlled all by one computer, or each by its own computer.

Part C: (40%)  Group Technical Report

Write a technical report that includes at minimum an Abstract, Introduction, Problem Statement or Objective, Background, Methodology, Results (can be combined with Discussion), Discussion, and Conclusions.  It should describe the wiring, overall design of your simulation, and how you solved the programming problem associated with having robots work together. The Background section of the report must include research and history of the type of project that you are doing. It must contain at minimum 6 different sources and two figures. Project management aspects of the project should not be included. Hand in one hard copy per group and upload a soft copy to ecampus.   You should add this to the proposal.

Deliverables

1. Project proposal: Thursday 27 Oct

Write a short description of what you plan for the robots to do. This should be about a page in length, and contain any drawings or sketches required to show what you plan for the bots to do, and any construction of work envelope that you need to make. This will have to be approved by the instructor before the project is completed. In addition, create a plan of action for how you plan to do the project, including a Gantt chart (you can may use any software) for the project. Graded as homework.

1. Create a weekly executive summary update due every Thursday Nov 3, 10, 17.

The summary should briefly describe what you have done up to that point, and what you are planning to do next. An updated Gantt chart should be included each week that shows progress up to that point, and the work still to be done. This will be graded as homework.

1. Demonstration

Demonstrate your robots, including a poster and 2-3 minute “elevator pitch.”

Sunday, Dec 4 at the Freshman EngrEXPO  1-6 pm: You will have a 1-hour time slot during that time.

1. Report: Thursday 1 Dec

Hard copy of tech report. Also upload a soft copy.
