Our team is a group of students who’s the most favourite computer game is CAD software and simulations. We worked on several smaller projects but we wanted to try something bigger, some competition, some CHALLENGE! .
We are students from the Department of Robotics and our rover is going to win! (eventually :D )
Our specialization is mechanical design, but in robotics is important to have knowledge in programming, electrical design and propulsion control. Our abilities are:
We want to create the most user friendly graphical interface for our teleoperation.
The undercarriage is designed with the help of dynamic simulations to not lose trantion on a rough surface.
We use the almighty Robot Operating System to develop our control applications. This allows us to use the state of the art tools a expand them to our liking.
The rover is equipped with cameras and lasers that provide a wide range of sensor data. All of this data is necessary for our upcoming work on autonomous task completion.
Our robot is equiped with failsafe mechanisms to ensure the safety of its surroundings.
In this project we can unleash our imagination and create new solutions in robotics.
The team consists of Ph.D. students and graduate students from the Department of Robotics at Faculty of mechanical engineering VŠB-TU Ostrava.
The rover is designed to be lightweight and configurable. This is achieved by using aluminium extrusions as a frame.
The suspension was evaluated in dynamic simulations. It is designed to keep all four wheel in continuous contact with the ground.
The manipulator can reach around and under the rover. And provides versatile solution to many tasks thanks to replaceable end effectors.
Competition taking place in Starachowice, Poland was devided into 4 tasks.
We also received many points on supplementary tasks as Presentation task and documentation reports before the competition
5th place out of 65 teams from the whole world is a great success for our team! As a bonus we won special "Fair Play" for good attitude to referees, inovative design and great success of first year team.
This web is under construction, but you can contact us in order to get more details.
