Project Summary

This senior design project is the fifth project of the series of projects planned, called TIGERBOT, for developing humanoid robots at RIT. The ultimate goal of the project series is to develop a robotic tour guide for RIT that could be used to recruit prospective students through demonstration. Two humanoids were designed in 2012.The second humanoid was able to stand by itself, respond to voice, and balance itself. In 2013, two more TigerBot were designed. The final and fourth TigerBot was successful in walking and standing normally and respond to voice pretty well with various motion response to commands.

The goal of this project team is to take the TigerBot design to the next level—a full scale platform that will control the locomotion of the TigerBot while providing the base for future components, sensors or aspects of intelligence. The full scale platform must be autonomous, untethered, and able to walk straight and turn, avoid obstacles, and recover from a forward or backward fall. Since this is a platform robot, this senior design team will focus on the emphasis on the locomotion piece.
