  • 4. The Challenge• Operating robots remotely have many useful applications. This challenge will explore possible means of accomplishing this task. The challenge is to design, build, and operate a complete system capable of navigating an obstacle course with the operator and the robot separated by a great distance. Objectives• Control the robot manually from a remote location.• Navigate a course in minimum time while avoiding obstacles Information found: Robot Competition
  • 5.  Open to university and high school teams. Category will be determined by the most senior member of the team (excluding the mentor or instructor). Teams will consist of at most four team members plus an optional mentor or instructor. The robot must be guided by the actions of an Operator at a remote location. One team member will be designated the “Operator” and is the only one that is allowed to guide the robot. The Operator may only receive information provided by the robot.2012 Competition Rules
  • 6.  The remaining team members may be located at the robot site and will be the only ones that may touch the robot during or between runs. Touching the robot during the run will result in a time penalty or possible disqualification of the current run. Striking and/or knocking over obstacles will carry time penalties. The actual penalty points will be declared prior to the start of the event. The robot must follow a predefined path from “Start” to “Finish” in minimum time while attempting to avoid striking obstacles. Each team will have a 15 minute window in which to attempt to traverse the obstacle course.2012 Competition Rules Cont.
  • 7.  When the final run is started, it must be completed before the 15 minute window expires to count as an “official time”. The team may make as many attempt as the 15 minute window will allow. The best score will be considered the “official time”. The team whose robot completes the course in the minimum time will be the winner. In the event of a tie, the team with the least penalty points will be deemed the winner.2012 Competition Rules Cont.

  • 12. 1. Analog Controller sends control signals for the WALL-Ebot to a computer through a USB port. 2. Control Laptop reads controller input, normalizes it, translates it to WALL-E understandable signals. 3. Control Laptop sends control packets from controller, as long as it receives WALL-E “heartbeat”, through a virtual COM port.
  • 13. 4. Wireless Control Node sends/receives virtual COM portmessages between the Control FPGA and Control Laptop. 5. Control FPGA relays messages between WALL- E and the Wireless Control Node.

  • 15. • Receive 3 bits of data from the controller team. • Once received, continue to State 2.State1: • Check to see if data is valid. • If not, shut down.State2: • If valid continue to State 3. • Sort data by order they were received and give feedback to controller.State3: • Return to State 1.
