1 By Brian Smith Nate James Joey Duprey

2  Many man hours driving around an ice rink in the same path  Companies need to develop new ways to automate the resurfacing process.

3  Design a device that can drive itself around an ice rink.  Recognize its distance from walls.  Be able to resurface ice by:  Melting Existing Ice  Apply Water Evenly  Smooth out ice surface

4  Electrical  ColdFire MCF51JM64  Ultrasonic Sensors  Electronic Compass  Temperature Sensor  DC Motors  Resurfacing  Propane Flame Heater  Water Delivery  Smoothing Towel

5 Water Direction of Motion Smoothing Towel Water Dispenser Heater Front

6 Water Direction of Motion Smoothing Towel Water Dispenser Heater ¾ pvc pipe Stepper moter

7  Flow rate is = Area (sq. ft) * Velocity (fps)  Q = Av  A= size of pvc pipe  A = ¾ pvc pipe  V= Velocity  V = gravity in this case  Q =.0317

8 Standby For main Turn on stepper motor Stop Stepper motor in reverse Pin2 High ? Pin 1 High ? Pin1 low? N Y Pin2 Low? Stop N N N Y Y Y

9  Navigate onto Ice  Joystick Control  Turn on Program  Warm Up Heater  Acquire Heading and Wall Distance  Resurfacing Program  Start: Blue  Then: Red, Green, Black  Cool Down  Heater turns off and cools  Device switches into standby mode  Speed  Velocity = (rpm*pi*diameter)  (4.12rpm*3.14*(14/12))= 15.1 ft/min
