Engineering 6806 Demo 2
The second demo will take place in EN3076, Thursday Nov. 1 starting at
2:00 pm. For this demo the course will be set up and all waypoints will
have targets giving the correct designation (letter) for the waypoint.
The procedures are as follows:
- All robots are to be delivered to EN3076 for sequestering at 2:00 pm.
You will not be able to access your robot while the demo is going on.
- The order of groups will be randomly selected at the demonstration
- We will conduct two rounds of demos, if necessary. Each round will
proceed as follows:
- An origin and destination waypoint will be announced.
- The robot is to be placed on the floor such that some part of it is
in the vicinity of the origin waypoint (defined as a 60cm square with
the waypoint centred on one side). Within that constraint you can choose
the position and orientation.
- The robot is to be connected by a tether with both serial and USB
cables to the operator computer.
- The operator will be permitted to start up the team's software on the
PC and enter the origin and destination waypoints and one other command (or
button click etc.) to tell the robot to go. After this the operator is
not permitted to do anything at the PC, except as described in vii, below.
- The robot must travel to the destination waypoint (i.e., some part of
the robot must enter the waypoint vicinity).
- An image of the target on the wall at the destination waypoint must
be acquired and the PC software must report the two letter codes
- The robot may acquire as many images as needed and the robot may
reposition itself as much as needed, but this must be done with at most the
operator giving a yes/no response, and each such response is
penalized as indicated below.
- Each team will be given two attempts to complete the
- Each attempt is time limited to 10 minutes.
- We will take the best score (of a possible four attempts), as follows:
|Achieving the destination waypoint||6|
|Reporting letter codes on destination||4|
|Touching a wall or obstacle||-2|
|Operator input (in step vii above.)||-1|
