Transcript of Millibots
What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
They gather information for the military, find and rescue hostages, and find escape routes.
Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so what other tasks can it perform?
No it is not multi-functional.
What sensors does the robot have and how does it use them?
It has sensors that detect walls, sensors that detect heat, and they have cameras to see anything else that might get in their way.
Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
It can save lives, find hostages, it can make jobs, and help the military.
Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future.
It soon will be able to link together to form bigger robots which will move faster, get over obstacles, and be able to move bigger things.
Name some advantages and disadvantages of using the robot to complete this task.
They are small so they can go unseen and fit into tight places, but they can't move anything heavy and you can't put many sensors on them because of their size.
How is the robot taught to perform this task?
It is programed to turn when its sensors see something in front of them. It also has cameras and heat sensors so that the millibots can find what they are looking for.
Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope?
They are used in the military. They have 3 flexible joints, which include 2 wheels and a swiveling top. The millibots can also link together to form a snake with many joints used to climb over obstacles.
Provide a picture of your robot.
This is a millibot.
These are the millibots linking together to form a snake.
