In this section we will show you the results provenient from our work during the semester, including the video of the presentation and below the video we show examples of the 3D modelations already made in different scenarios
Robot Structure and Locomotion
The robot team is constituted by Licínio Malheiro, Álvaro Vaz, Catarina Comba, Fábio Mendes, Cláudia Rodrigues and is responsible for the structural design and the robot locomotion.
In terms of design, our main concern was to make sure that the structure is sturdy so it would be able to face many different scenarios.
Regarding to the locomotion we have to control the movement of the caterpillar tracks, detect the existence of wholes in the floor and power the robot.
The sensorial team is constituted by André Gradim, João Pandeirada, Micael Monteiro and Patrícia Martins and is responsible for all the sensorial data acquisition as well as the transmission to the comunication and control team.
Their job consist in getting a temperature/humidity, accelarometer/gyroscope, gas and flame data and last but not least the LIDAR fully functioning without any restraints.
Communications & Control
The communication team is constituted by Bernardo Lopes, Miguel Rêgo, Ricardo Pinho and Pedro Nunes and is responsible for implementing the “brains” of the robot.
We have to ensure the different modules can properly work together and that the robot has the means to always decide on the best decision to make, properly analysing the data collected by the different sensors.
Furthermore, we make sure that the data gathered by the robot is presented to the user in a friendly, readable and clean way, making sure that the human response teams can act quickly and efficiently, in a catastrophe scenario.
We also guarantee that the communications are robust enough to ensure that under harsh conditions, they are still operational between the robot and the computer, using our software.
