Milestones

 

Milestone 1: (27th April)

  • Completion of the Online NI LabVIEW Training Course (Core 1 and Core 2) by two team members.

 

Milestone 2: (9th May)

  • Submit Project Proposal (300-500 words in MS Word or MS PPT format)
  • Demonstrate usage of NI myRIO and LabVIEW to control at least one actuator/motor or acquire from at least one sensor.

 

 

Milestone 3: (8th June)

  • Requirement: Preliminary design and prototype with obstacle avoidance implemented.
  • Demonstrate: Create a prototype that moves forward avoiding obstacles.

 

Milestone 4: (25th July)

  • Requirement: Demonstration of navigation/localisation and obstacles avoidance.
  • Demonstrate: Robot begins with loaded medicine units in location A and then moves to location B. At location B, the robot carefully places a single medicine unit on an elevated space (a platform higher than the ground the robot is on).

 

Milestone 5: (29th August) Requirement to Qualify for Finals.

  • Requirement: Object handling, navigation and obstacle avoidance.
  • Demonstrate: Move from location A (with loaded medicine units) to location B while avoiding obstacles. At location B, the robot carefully places a single medicine unit on an elevated platform (a platform higher than the ground the robot is on). The robot then moves to location C while avoiding obstacles to place another medicine unit on another elevated platform. Finally, the robot must move to location D while avoiding obstacles to finish the task.

 

*Code submission and review will be required to pass Milestones 3, 4 and 5. Details on the design requirements and locations A, B, C and D will be provided with your 2016 Task Documentation.
