Re: Post-Build Projects

I'll finally have some time to get to work on my final project for my education class ... design, and present to the class, a one hour lesson plan. I'm doing mine on robotics.

Re: Post-Build Projects

don't forget several teams have TWO robots- those teams will be fine-tuninng their autonomous mode and giving their drivers valuable practice time.

its always nice to dream. got a psychology final exam in about six hours and haevnt even opened my textbook, so thats what I'm gonna be doing..

I'm going to learn C, catch up my homework, and our team is also hopefully doing a fully autonomous robotics competition called BotBall.

Re: Post-Build Projects

We built a remote control go-cart last year, and this year we are thinking of doing a segway.

Re: Post-Build Projects

Last year on the bus ride home from the Championship Event in Atlanta, I asked out coach/teacher "What do we do now?" You see, I had caught this thing we now call "Fusion Fever" and knew I would be needing a robotics fix to keep me going until the 2005 season. Well, he told me that he really wanted some way to shoot t-shirts during football games and other places where we could show off our robot and bring some attention to Team Fusion. My son (who is a Senior member of the team) and I built a pneumatic t-shirt shooter and reprogrammed the robot to work it. With a little help wiring it up from one of our other engineers, we we able to cause more excitement at the games than our 11-1 football team did. I'm not sure what kind of project Mr. Fava has in mind after the Championships this year, but I'm pretty sure it will be exciting!

Go over to www.teamfusion364.org, click on 'videos' and download one of the greeting card videos to see the shooter in action.

Re: Post-Build Projects

I'm considering a robot simulator on a PC, that would use the actual code that our robot uses. Kind of a development tool the programmers could use while the robot is still in pieces.

The ultimate simulator would actually involve a robot controller and operator interface, where the robot controller inputs and outputs would feed into the PC. Signals sent into and out of the PC would affect the simulated robot; for example PWM 5 and 6 are the drive motors. Positive values on those signals would move the robot forward, etc. If the virtual 'bot hits some defined limit on an arm, the switch discrete would set in the PC, and that would feed back into the controller, so the software could react.

This would be a great way to test software, and if the fidelity was high enough, refine control laws, timing, and could even do failure analysis.


Has anyone else built something like this?

Re: Post-Build Projects

Our teams going to work on the spirit aspect as well, and try to come up with some new things. We also have to clean up - meaning throw away the stale animal crackers, pizza, and finally sweaping all the junk from the saws/drills that we just swept onto the floor. We're going to contact our sponsors and let them know whats coming up, as well as possibly planning one last fundraiser. We are also going to make up a newsletter covering what when on during the season. Funny how people say robotics only lasts six weeks...

Re: Post-Build Projects

Find some way to spend my time!

Probably learning how to force myself to do homework at 3PM after school as opposed to 1 AM....Catching up on sleep and starting to eat healthy meals will probably also occur...Some team members have also discussed a few more projects i might get involved with.

[Edit]Oops! forgot the most important, learning how to drive the robot since I eneded up on the potential drivers list[/Edit]
