Project: Robotic Assistance
Our task this week was to create 5 robots that help people reach safety in case of an emergency. We had to take shells of robots and program them for our needs.
Robot 1: A vex robot equipped with an arm to clear debris. Programmed with Easy C.
Robot 2: An Arduino Sparkfun robot programmed to sound an alarm and lead people to safety by following a black line.
Robot 3: An iRobot- C programmed robot that searches an area for survivors. When a person presses the button on the robot, it is notified of their presence and returns to home base.
Robot 4: A Scribbler robot programmed with Propeller C Software that will be carried by the iRobot to the survivor. Once with the person, the Scribbler will draw a path from the survivor to the command center to mark their location.
Robot 5: A VEX IQ Robot programmed in Robot C to follow the line left by the Scribbler to deliver releif supplies to previously located survivors.
Whole unit put together: 5 safety robots ready to work in unison.
