SURG_Fall_2009_Brainstorming

Focus on cooperative behaviors - Formation Control
  • We don't have any cooperative behaviors
  • Would make for lots of cool demos
  • Budget ideas
    • Additional parts/sensors for robot upkeep (encoders, BOM 1.5)
  • Title: Formation Control in a Low-Cost Robot Colony
  • Abstract (Austin, Chris)
  • Research Question And Significance (Nico, B-Rad)
    • applications and previous research
    • exploration
    • chemical spills
    • from previous research we found that formation control would be applicable to problems such as mapping, cooperative object manipulation
  • Project Design and Feasibility
    • Robots (Emily)
      • reword (update) from previous SURGs
    • BOM (John)
      • have been developed; need to buy parts for more
    • Wireless (Emily)
      • explain
    • End Goal and Demonstration (Evan, Emily, Jimmy)
      • [Deliverables] (Evan)
        • Battle formation (keep N robots on the front line)
        • light writing
      • Static (Emily)
      • Dynamic formations (Emily)
        • moving formations
      • draw parallels to real life scenarios (Jimmy)
        • land mines
        • robot gardeners
        • vector resource
        • patrol
        • perturbation response
  • Project Organization (Megan)
  • Feedback and Evaluation (Megan)
  • Dissemination of Knowledge (Megan)
  • Budget (Brad)
    • BOM 1.5 parts x 8
    • RBOM?
    • IR filter
