Abstract

The senior capstone project that was tasked to the team was the decision of choosing a challenge within a national robotics competition. The group decided to compete at the National Robotics Challenge in Marion, Ohio. The idea was to participate in the combat robot competition at this NRC event. Once this decision had been made the next steps were to get an idea of what the rules and requirements of the competition were and to try and to sketch a very rough drawing of what the ideal robot should look like. From there it was decided to start a timeline of the goals and objectives throughout the whole project. This would serve as a baseline, and it was later altered and updated as the project progressed.

The next step was then started by making some 3D mockups in SOLIDWORKS to get an idea of what the weight of our main chassis would be. This chassis was printed off utilizing the 3D printer to understand what the durability and weight was going to be of this 3D printed chassis. The main objective for this project was to have the robot fully operational a month before the competition on April 7th. Many different skills were used during this process, including but not limited too soldering, understanding of circuitry, use of SOLIDWORKS, and other general engineering practices.
