Robot: Charlie Team Members Steven DeTardo Tom Pniewski Jeff Voigt
Bio: Steven DeTardo Second Semester Freshman Currently a 2EE Learned how much digital logic has an impact in controlling electronics. Also how PWM can be used to direct servos I’d like to get involved with MIL and some of their projects. Work for a company in the marine industry such as Mercury, Raymarine, Garmin or Volvo Penta and get involved with navigation systems Get involved and manage your time
Bio: Thomas Pniewski First year Engineering student. Used to be Mechanical, switched to Materials I learned cool ways to prank my roommates In the future I may take more EE classes I hope to be an engineer in the automotive industry, and plan to join some automotive clubs at UF Advice: Early Classes, not as fun as you’d think.
Bio: Jeffrey M. Voigt Freshman Engineering student Rather interested in Chemical Engineering, former Industrial. New found interest in EE Will now look for Thomas Vermeer when I break my electronics Play some intramurals, do it Get money or die trying
Design Methodology Placed Charlie in maze to test sensor values Made corrections to sensor sensitivity Used all 3, Left, Front, and Right CdS cell to stop in garage Sensors helped prevent wall collisions Leaving sensor values equal prevented wall collisions, however didn’t permit Charlie to complete the maze
Wildcard Conclusions Robotics can give a rewarding experience when solving problems. It can be as complex as you want to make it. It has infinite possibilities. If you think you might like robotics this is the class for you. If you already do, you’ll appreciate it more.
