Design a Self - Autonomous Robot
Design for Manufacture | 2nd Year | Design project | Role: Team Leader and CAD Designer | Duration: 2 Months
Design Brief: In a team of 5, design a self-contained autonomous electrically powered robot to lift an increasing load vertically up a copper pipe, which uses sensors and control systems to move the robot to a precise position after a number of operations.
- Engineering Drawings + CAD Model
- Billing of Materials (BOM)
- Report Detaining the mechanisms, sensors etc.
- Algorithm Flowchart - demonstrating the control system which would be used
Marks Awarded and Contribution
My role in the team was team leader so I led the weekly meetings and followed up individually with team members to provide support.
The BOM, flowchart and various parts of the report and their corresponding research were distributed among the team.
I was tasked with producing the CAD model, the resulting 2D engineering drawings and exploded drawing using SolidWorks. I also was best placed to write up the mechanism section of the report.
Below you will find sample pieces of work from the project:
