P10217: Robot Integration and Field Testing (Robot Integration & Testing Part 3)


Project Summary Project Information

The Wandering Campus Ambassador projects will develop a robot-like system to raise awareness of self-sustaining energy and showcase student's creative and technical abilities. The idea is to create curiosity through a robot like device with a living, growing and self-sustaining plant. It will wander around in a nice, slow, autonomous fashion, searching out the best sun, water, fellow plants and friendly passers-by. Act as a great (yet very quiet) spokesperson/plant for the KGCOE MSD, GCCIS Software Engineering Senior Projects, CIAS Industrial Design Senior Projects and even the new sustainability programs being created at RIT. Just think what a great news story or YouTube episode it would make. If you think along the environmentally friendly side a little, you could consider some replenishable power sources for both the robotic-like device and its plant which are not only along-for-the-ride but may guide the robotic's autonomous decisions in search of being able to sustain the plant (i.e. water, sun, temperature, food).
