Team Vision for Problem Definition PhaseSummary:
- During this phase we planned to define our problem more specifically, which is especially important for us due to the scope of the overall project. we also planned to begin verification of the previous team's design and the leg that they built.
- We completed the definition of the problem, created a presentation and presented our problem definition to Dr. Slack, Dr. Sahin, and other MSD students. We did not begin the verification process in any significant way.
Project SummaryTigerbot will be a fully autonomous, untethered, humanoid robotic tour guide designed specifically for the RIT campus. As of 2015, there have been 5 iterations of Tigerbot with varying degrees of success. Tigerbot four is capable of walking, standing, and is moderately responsive to voice commands. Tigerbot five is a full design of a 22 degree of freedom full-scale humanoid with one partially constructed leg.
The goal of this iteration of Tigerbot is to construct a fully operational prototype of the lower body based on previous designs or new designs. The prototype will be capable of standing, walking, and balancing while being untethered and autonomous. The team will also create updated designs for Tigerbot and prepare documentation to assist future project iterations.
Project Goals and Key DeliverablesProject Goal: The goal of this project is to take the TigerBot design to a full scale platform that will control the locomotion of the TigerBot while providing the base for future components, sensors or aspects of intelligence.
- Full-scale platform
- Includes legs, waist, ankles, feet
- Capable of walking
