EGN1935: ECE (Ad)Ventures Team : Short Circuit Robot: Overdrive Team Members Camilo Buscaron Sofia Gaviria Pedro Palomino
Camilo Buscaron 1 st Semester Freshmen Majoring in Computer (hardware) Engineering I have learned the basics of robotic programing I would like to purse graduate studies in Robotics and Artificial intelligence I do not consider that this course has any effect on my future After college, I plan to dominate the world Do what you are suppose to be doing, when you are suppose to be doing it
Sofia Gaviria Freshman Major: Biology Learned from course: about sensors and how to program a robot to run on its own…trial and error how course affect future: I am going to think more in depth about how everything we use works electrically speaking, develop great respect for engineers UF/career plans and goals: I plan to go into pre-med, expose myself to the various opportunities in that area, gain lab experience Words of wisdom: Don’t procrastinate, keep your goals in mind, try something new, keep an open mind, some change is good.
Pedro Palomino 1 st Semester Freshmen Majoring in Environmental Engineering I have learned what goes into building a robot In the future I hope to use this knowledge to build a battlebot I plan to get a degree in EES, and maybe a masters After college, I want to work for the government, and then hopefully open my own firm Work hard and have fun!
Proposed methodology Our Robot relied on the left/right side Infrared sensors(IR) to avoid collision In addition to the front sensor to estimate proximity After receiving a value from the front IR the robot relied on the value from the side IRs to make a decision While constantly checking for the value that the photocell feeding back
Proposed methodology As a goal we endeavor to follow the rules of good programming practice. By keeping a simple and concise code with out sacrificing efficiency and clarity. We accomplish this by limiting the source code to 4 lines of behaviors. If chan1 < 30 & chan 2 < 30 then forward for 300 Else if chan 0 > 65 then right for 2 Else if chan 1 > 30 then right Else if chan 1 > 20 then left
Problems & Solution The main problem we experienced was faulty sensor readings when two sensor where caught in a corner at and oblique angle. This prevented the robot for completing the 1 st run successfully, however the 2 nd run the robot complete the course effectively
