Background
6
Project Objectives
The main objective of the R.A.T. is to entertain
a pet for an extended period of time without
causing injury to the pet, humans, or the
surfaces and objects in the area where the toy
might be used.
Secondary Objectives Healthy Exercise for
Pet Durability Customer Satisfaction
7
Timeline
1/10/2001 First meeting, established
boundaries, outline for the semester
1/22/2001 Adopted OOPic as microcontroller
for project, first chassis design failure
2/14/2001 MiniZ Race Car chassis adopted as RAT
body
2/27/2001 Critical Design Review
3/24/2001 OOPic and sonar interfaced, sonar
program implemented, chassis assembled
8
Timeline
4/07/2001 OOPic interfaced with servo, GUIDE
v1.0 was coded implementing servo,
motors, and sonar.
4/21/2001 OOPic program GUIDE v1.1
implemented, correcting flaws in
guidance system
4/22/2001 Motor Controller for chassis
completed, initial tests show voltage
to be too low to power motors
4/23/2001 Chassis modifications are made to
mount sonar and OOPic devices. Motor
Controller prototyping and Voltage Doubler
failed in implementation.

11
Software Specifications
  • To avoid obstacles at a distance within 3 feet
    of the R.A.T.
  • To turn the servo the desired direction after
    seeing an obstacle and needing to turn
  • To move irregularly while a safe distance from
    any obstacles
  • To use the stop-and-go procedure while at a safe
    distance from any obstacles for some time

12
Software Specifications
  • To control the forward and backward motion of
    the motors via the two signal lines connected to
    the motor controller
  • To design the controlling interfaces to all
    hardware required to meet the preceding
    specifications

13
Design Requirements
  • The toy must
  • Avoid becoming trapped by obstacles or the pet.
  • Move in a way that interests the pet.
  • Be durable enough to endure the contact that
    might occur with obstacles and/or the pet.
  • Avoid displeasing sounds and visual features.
  • Meet minimum requirements for battery life,
    safety, and functional lifetime.
