Presentation Overview Meet the Pretty Flowers Design Methodology Problems and Solutions Team Conclusions
Freshman pursuing a major in Mechanical Engineering Her future goals include continuing into graduate school for Biomedical Engineering and traveling to third world countries “There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and [robots].” -Albert Schweitzer
Freshman pursuing a major in Environmental Engineering His future goals include pursuing a career in environmental remediation and saving the environment. Jules Renard- "Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired."
Freshman pursuing a major in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and a minor in Electrical Engineering Her future goals include pursuing a career in robotics as a Disney Imagineer “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
Design Methodology We began this lab having trouble using the sensors, however, after three separate attempts we were able to create a functioning program. We used this code as the basis for the racing round. We had to adjust the code to make the sensors more sensitive than it was for previous mazes.
Design Methodology Continued… Our usage of the sensors included not only single sensor commands, but combinations of two sensors to avoid catching in corners. This was crucial because Awesome Blossom had a tendency to box herself into corners!
Problems and their Solutions Our main obstacle was learning how to use the program to successfully program the robot’s sensors. Three attempts later and we had perfected our code. Also, Awesome Blossom was a robot who loved corners, so we had to tweak the code many times to avoid this hazard.
Awesome Blossom lines up to start…
Team Conclusions Higher appreciation of Electrical Engineering and robotics Teamwork is key! Intuitive problem solving Hands-on experience in robotics
