  • Terrain Surveyor:A Robotic Project Planningby David Avila for CS 376

  • IntroductionDesign CriteriaWhat is it supposed to do?What tools do I need to accomplish these goals?

    Disciplines InvolvedMechanicalElectricalSoftware

  • What is it supposed to do?Map a terrainTerrain: my living area

    Be autonomousWith option for a manual override

    Features I would like to implementVideo cameraIdentify objects

  • What tools do I need to accomplish these goals?Mechanical:

    Design using CAD SoftwarePro: Custom made to my specificationsCon: Time consuming, not my greatest interest

    Kits: pre-built platform/structurePro: TimeCon: End up with parts I dont need

  • Example of a pre-built kitBoe Bot Kithttp://www.parallax.com/Bought online (http://www.1saleaday.com) at 1/3rd the price

  • Another example of pre-built kithttp://www.tamiyausa.com/Found and bought at Frys ElectronicsTamiya: Tracked vehicle chassis kit with a twin motor gearbox

  • What tools do I need to accomplish these goals?Electrical:CAD Circuit design tools:Orcad PSPiceElectronic Workbench (now owned by National Instrument): Multisim

  • What tools do I need to accomplish these goals?Electrical:Testing tools:OscilloscopePower SupplyDevelopment boardPart(s) to survey the terrainSonarAccelerometerMicrocontroller (PIC Microchip)

  • Electrical: Testing Tools

  • Electrical: More toolsDevelopment Board:

    All in one tool

    Simulate a PIC microcontroller before it goes into production.

    EasyPIC 3 Development boardhttp://www.mikroe.com/

  • Electrical: Important PiecesSonar:

    Measures distance using sonar (sound generation and reception)

    Accelerometer (not pictured):

    Measures tilt and dynamic acceleratingParallax Ping))) (pictured above)http://www.parallax.com/

  • What tools do I need to accomplish these goals?Software:IDE that can:

    Simulate the software, electrical and some mechanical portion of the projectHave a built in compiler (compile from a high level code to assembly) and programming tool

    Last and not least, inexpensive

  • Software: ToolsOshonsoft (http://www.oshonsoft.com): PIC SimulatorIDE some of the features:LCD/Graphic Display EmulatorOscilloscope8xLED BoardMicrocontroller Simulation (port toggle simulation)Memory Editor (EEPROM, Program Memory, etc)Stepper Motor Phase SimulationSerial Port Terminal EmulatorKeypad MatrixAssembler/DisassemblerCompiler (BASIC)30 Euros

  • Software: Tools PIC Simulator

  • Software: ToolsOther misc. software tools Im using or have used:

    MS Visual Studio.NET 2005 using C#Serial Programming to communicate with hardware

    MPLab by MicrochipAssembly programming of the PIC Microcontroller

  • ConclusionA Robotic Project PlanningRequires multidiscipline, but thats what makes it fun.Learn forms of control systems via mechanical, electrical and softwareTake a divide and conquer approach
