Robots Everywhere Oberon - underwater robot Oberon maps ocean terrain and films simultaneously (Australia) Underwater robots, otherwise known as autonomous underwater vehicles, or AUVs, have been exploring the ocean floor for years Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10

4 Introduction to Engineering – E10
Shuttle’s cargo bay and robot arm made by Canada. Historic space handshake between Shuttle and Space Station Robots, 2001 Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10

Gemini-Scout, a remotely controlled rolling robot designed specifically to lead search-and-rescue efforts in the event of a mining disaster  Urban search and rescue robot moving through rubble in 2007 Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10

6 Introduction to Engineering – E10
Smart as a Bird: Flying Rescue Robot Will Autonomously Avoid Obstacles, 2012 Festo’s Smart Bird robot, has 35 motors, weighs about 1.0 lb. From “Boston Dynamics” is capable of traversing difficult terrain, running at 4mph, carrying 340lbs, and can climb a 35 degree incline. Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10

7 The da Vinci® Surgical System
Only da Vinci overcomes the limitations of both traditional open surgery and conventional minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities and offer a minimally invasive option for major surgery. With da Vinci, small incisions are used to introduce miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.

10 Introduction to Engineering – E10
Scenario Companion robots can help people with day-to-day tasks that they might have difficulty completing on their own. One example is the Care-O-bot that was developed in Germany (http://www.care-o-bot.de/en/care-o-bot-3/download/videos.html#video2en). In this scenario, the robot is helping someone make dinner. Care-O-Bot (source: Fraunhofer) Your objective in this project is to design an autonomous robot that is capable of turning off a stove, locating a plate and then bringing it to the person in another room. Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10

11 Introduction to Engineering – E10
The Beacons In our lab, the stove and the plate are simulated by two infrared emitting beacons - a red one representing the stove and a green one representing the plate. Your robot’s task is to shut down the red beacon, and move the green one across the starting line. RED Beacon - representing the stove GREEN Beacon - representing the plate Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10 11

12 Introduction to Engineering – E10
8 ft 2 ft Beacons will be randomly placed in this box, at least 4 ft from each other. Red Beacon Green Beacon > 4 ft 12 ft Arena wall 12 inch tall Starting line Starting position: middle of starting line, facing away from the beacons Introduction to Engineering – E10 Ken Youssefi

13 Introduction to Engineering – E10
Beacons are infrared emitters. The beacons can be turned off by pressing down on the push-button switch located on top. Ken Youssefi Introduction to Engineering – E10
