Measurement Set 1: 1. Measure the dimensions of the Tumbler Chassis. 2. Measure the wheel radius. 3. What are the overall dimensions of the robot (wheels and chassis). Include a sketch or image of the top view and side view of your robot with dimensions. 4. Determine the position, shape and size of the polygon of support (PoS) when the robot is at rest on a horizontal surface and sketch this as accurately as you can. 5. Record and display all these measurements in your lab notebook. Measurement Set 2: 1. Determine the centroid of the chassis. 2. Approximate weight of the robot based on the component weight list below. 3. Determine the center of mass (CoM) of the robot using one of the methods covered in class. (You may want to use the component weight information below). 4. Determine what proportion of the weight is supported by each of the wheels. 5. Record and display all these calculations and measurements and comment on your structure given this information.Measurement Set 3: 1. Determine how fast your tumbler is capable of travelling based on the motor information below and the material covered in class. Document your calculations. 2. Using the measured tracks, evaluate the top speed your tumbler (at least three measurements). Explain any discrepancy. 3. Record and display these calculations and measurements and comment on any discrepancy. Measurement Set 4: which your robot will be stable. 2. Evaluate this by determining the angle experimentally. Start at 10 degrees below your predicted angle and make measurements at 5 degree increments. 3. Work out using the RMF material from class whether your robot (the motors) have the capability to drive up its maximum stable slope (assume velocity from 1 and a=v/2 m/s 2 ) 4. How many motors would you need to drive this slope? 5. Record and display your calculations and measurements. Comment on your conclusions. Measurement Set 5 1. A principal objective of the tumbler is to flip over (tumble) when driven into a wall: Verify that your tumbler will flip over and can continue to drive after a flip. 2. Use one of the storage boxes as an obstacle, placed against the wall. What happens when the tumbler is driven against it. Document and explain. Measurement Set 6: 1. Experimentally determine what point on the chassis is the center of rotation 2. Skid-Steering relies on wheel slip, which can be unpredictable, and the CoR may not remain stationary with respect to the ground. Determine by experimentation if the CoR translates during repeated 360 degree rotations and whether this translation is predictable. 3. Document and display your measurements and calculations.
Measurement Set 1: 1. Tumbler Chassis Dimensions Length = 204 mm Width = 255 mm 2. Wheel Radius = 65 mm 3. Tumbler Overall Dimensions Length = 274 mm Width = 307 mm Height = 122 mm 4. The polygon of support is rectangular, located in the area of the wheels facing the main chassis where the wheels tough the ground
Approximation of the polygon of support Measurement Set 2: 1. Centroid of the chassis is 2. Total weight of tumbler = 1362.98 g 3. Here is sevral ways to calculate the central mass:
W use the second method: The center of mass was determined by balancing the tumbler on the eraser of a pencil
Image of where the center of mass was determined to be 4. The proportion of weight for each wheel 5. After determining the measurements of the tumbler, it was found that the tumbler is a back heavy robot. Having the center of mass toward the back may lead to problems when it comes to overcoming steep inclines, but that remains to be seen.
Measurement Set 3: The tumbler was found to travel a distance of 497.9 cm in an average time of 6.7 s (average time found after three tests). The distance was determined as the two closest points of the two pieces of white tape, i.e. the inner sides of the tape. The fronts of the wheels were placed on the inner side of the tape, and the end of the test would be called when both front wheels cross the inner side of the other piece of tape. First test: 6.8 s Second test: 6.6 s Third test: 6.9 s 1. The tumbler is capable of traveling at 74 cm/s 2. The top speed of the tumbler is 80 cm/s Drawing indicating the start and finish Measurement Set 4: 1. Determined maximum angle of inclination = 45 degrees. This was determined by tilting the tumbler on it's rear axis backwards until the center of Mass passed the polygon of support, then using a protractor to measure the angle. 2. It was found after experimentation that the tumbler flipped at an angle of 40 degrees. 3. The robot would have the ability to drive up it's maximum stabel slope. Motor RMF = .96Nm x 11.38rad/s = 10.93 1.36298kg x (.37 + 9.8 x sin(40)xl) = 9.24 4. One motor would be needed for this slope since one motor has more RMF than the robot. Measurement Set 5: 1. The tumbler was able to flip when it was driven into a wall, and continued to function. 2. The tumbler, when encountered with the obstacle, was still able to flip. -- (c) Fordham University Robotics and Computer Vision |
