Team Vision for Final Demo and HandoffSummarize:
- Camera usage/object avoidance, locomotion, object retrieval, buoyancy control, and return to home location were intended to be implemented during this phase.
- Camera usage and forward locomotion were demonstrated.
Test Results Summary
Risk and Problem Tracking
Forward locomotion issues have caused delays when
implementing the necessary systems; a new risk has
emerged. The fish may not swim for Imagine RIT. This risk
can be reduced by testing time and hard work. Connection
problems to the camera from the raspberry pi have caused
electrical system downtimes rendering the fish
untestable. Problems tensioning the muscles to the tail
have resulted in poor testing data with regards to
forward locomotion. Problems with muscles blowing have
resulted in mechanical system down time. A video, link
below, shows the fish at an early week into the phase.
Forward locomotion was displayed with use of a large swim
period and fin.
A video of forward locomotion and object avoidance found in the link below.

Final Electrical PCB Schmatics are shown in the images below
Service to the wiring in the electrical box can be performed by cross-referencing the following four images which represent the necessary connections.
Software revisions for the Arduino code can be located in the software revisions folder on the edge depository (Root Directory) (Software Revisions Link). The revision for the code running on imagine RIT will be >3.004 as optimizations are still occurring. The last few revisions are documented below
Author: Ryan Wade Selby
(1) Debugging PWM patterns (Still Incorrect)
(2) Seconds/Flap = 2.4
Author: Ryan Wade Selby
(1) Corrected PWM Patterns
(2) Always Intake and Exhaust for 5% of the period... avoid over pressurizing the lines
Rev: 3.004 Author: Ryan Wade Selby
(1) Reduced valve test time in the begining of the program
- Recommendations for future work
Improved communications and team member delivery can improve upon the late delivery of the fish. It is practical to utilize the system in a further MSD program. Increases in the electrical box volume can reduce the headache associated with rewiring the fish.
