Mechatronics Robot

Mechanical Design Lead Fall 2018

System Overview

Competition objective was to clear a majority of the small wooden blocks on the board to the opponent’s side by the end of a 1 minuet match

Used a strategy of collecting blocks inside a rear scoop for the majority of the match, and releasing on the opponent's side in the final seconds

Programmed an Arduino Uno to utilize color and QTI line following sensors

Featured a fully custom chassi to better suit the chosen strategy

Design Details

Low profile and wide wheel stance allowed for better performance during collisions

Front funnel easily gathers blocks underneath chassis, and diverts into rear scoop

Wheels and scoop operated using servos connected to H-bridges

Sensors placed for optimized information gathering and protection from collisions

Accessible electronics mounting for easy troubleshooting and component replacement
