TU STORM Programming Competition
  • Smart Task Oriented Robotics Missions
  • Every team is issued a TU designed and built
    robot mechanically capable of completing each
    mission
  • These robots are controlled only by the
    autonomous programs written by the students

Human interface
  • TU STORM robots have other inputs for human
    interface.
  • There are three digital switches
  • used to set parameters for the autonomous
    program.
  • A potentiometer designed for calibrating the
    sensors and trimming the R/C servos.

Motion
  • Two dense foam wheels
  • Powered by modified heavy duty R/C servos.
  • The PWM outputs from the controller are used to
    drive the R/C servos.
  • A plastic ball skid as a third point of contact
    to the terrain.
  • The robot can turn with a zero degree radius.

17
Power requirements
  • The main battery is a Ni-Cad 6 cell 7.2v RC
    battery that can be quickly charged in 15min.
  • The second battery is a 9v used for the infrared
    sensor.

TU STORM 2007 Missions
  • The 2007 competition will showcase five different
    missions.
  • Three missions will involve programming the TU
    STORM robots.
  • One mission will involve completing the CAD
    design in Inventor of a robot for a FIRST type of
    competition.
  • Another mission will involve completing an
    animation in 3ds Max.
  • The specifics of each mission will be announced
    at the end of the kick-off

22
TU STORM 2007 Kick-off Workshops
  • Programming the Robot Controllers
  • using previous missions for review
  • programming details of new tools and sensors
  • CAD design using Inventor
  • use FIRST components to make a simple design
  • Animation workshop using 3ds Max
