Introduction slides
Provide a problem statement for your whole team project that includes the overall objective of your whole robot swarm/collection.
Remember to focus on the problem’s goal without pre-conceiving a solution. Please refer to the previous deliverable to better understand how a problem statement should be. E.g. you can say ‘Rats are a common problem in NYC subway system, we are developing an automated solution to contain rodent population’.
Briefly provide a description of the problem context /application area that the proposed design focuses on addressing, and what’s currently lacking in it. How are you adding value economically, or individually, or socially, or environmentally, or technologically.
Briefly mention direct customers: Who are the actual end-users and actual buyers?
Briefly mention indirect customers: Who are other relevant people that indirectly may affect the design? (E.g., other users, investors, policy makers, etc.)
Provide a list of design requirements that a successful robot swarm/collection must fulfill. These should be the same as (or an updated version of) what you proposed in the first/second deliverable. These are the requirements for the overall robot swarm, not the individual robots.
Also remember the rules regarding the requirements from the first deliverable. They should be measurable, quantitative (numbers), and specific. Your design requirements must come from the customer’s needs and wants. They are not the constraints artificially imposed by the course guidelines (e.g., “The design shall have at least two sensors” is not a customer-based requirement).
List what types of individual robots are included in the swarm/collection and which belong to which team member. In a few words (less than a sentence), mention what each robot does. No need to provide details that is for the next section.
List them in the order they will appear in the presentation.
Individual Robots slides
In this collection of slides each team member (one after the other) will present their individual robot (as requested below).Mechanical Design slides
While showing the detailed CAD model / assembly of your robot from multiple viewpoints (as snapshots), clearly describe how various parts of your robot are connected together and function together. Clearly mention all the mechanical parts of your design (e.g., body frame, shafts, beams, etc. as necessary). Mention (and point out) all the sensors, actuators, and electronic parts. Clearly mention how all these elements function together to make your design work. Mention the key features.
Briefly mention and justify any changes since the proposal (if any).
Only, if you made the robot using physical parts, you can just show pictures of your robot from multiple angles. You are exempt from the CAD model of the robot. You may even hold it while presenting/explaining.
Most of your CAD design may simply be a combination of boxes and cylinders with slots/holes in them. For example, a motor can just be a cylinder with a shaft (another cylinder) coming from it, an Arduino can just be a box (give it a different color though). Show all the components needed e.g. shafts and bearings, pulleys, wheels, gearbox, sensors, actuators, etc. You may idealize them as combinations of boxes, cylinders, and holes. You don’t need to show any electrical wires, or pulley cables.
There should be enough detail in your design! But don’t go way overboard. You hopefully won’t need more than 10-20 parts in your model. Don’t worry about rendering, but adding some colors will help! Surely add some dimensions. It should be at the right zoom level to see clearly.
Once again, if you made the robot using physical parts, you can show a picture of your robot from multiple angles, instead of any CAD drawing. You may even hold it while presenting/explaining.
If a 3D (isometric) view doesn’t show all the relevant inside details, you can make some component transparent (hood, roof, outer-covering) to show what’s inside. Hence, presenting multiple pictures.
Circuit Design slides
While showing the TinkerCAD circuit for your robot (or a picture of your actual circuit, made in real life), describe how various sensors and actuators of your robot are connected together and function together. Clearly mention (and point out) all the sensors, actuators, and electronic parts.
Briefly mention and justify any changes since the proposal (if any).
Make sure the circuit pictures/TinkerCAD screen has the right zoom level, otherwise you may split it over multiple slides.
Arduino Code and flowchart slidesShow and explain the overall logic of the program as a flowchart (activity diagram). Make sure the flowchart has a sufficient zoom level (or consider splitting it over multiple slides)
The structure/content of your flowchart can follow the instructions similar to those given in part-4 of the “Activity: Arduino Coding (Individual)”
Briefly mention and justify any changes since the proposal (if any).
While describing the activity diagram (flowchart)Mention what type of information will your robot receive from the others (And/or the central control hub), to initiate its designated tasks. These are the inputs to the robot.
Mention what type of information will your robot receive from the environment through the sensors. These are also the inputs to the robot.
Mention what actions will your robot do with all combinations of these inputs (e.g. if the presence of a fire is detected by a light sensor, how will the robot and its actuators react). These are the processes/outputs of the robot.
Mention what type of information will your robot transmit to the others, or the central control hub, based on the inputs/processes above. These are also the outputs of the robots.
Your activity diagram must clearly show all possible combinations of inputs and outputs, in a concise way.
Include the pictures/snippets of your actual Arduino code also (though in interest of time, you don’t need to speak about every line/concept in the code). Make sure these have sufficient zoom level to see the code. Instead of pictures/snippets, you may even very briefly just scroll through your whole code.
Demonstration
Now it is time to show how various systems of the robot all function together.
If you are demonstrating via TinkerCAD, please share the screen, run the simulation with your Arduino code and show various input-output combinations from your flowchart. Show how the robot’s actuators (motors, servomotors, etc.) move according to the information received from the other robots or the central hub, or the sensors. E.g., show the actuators move, as you manually change the light for light sensor during simulation, or obstacle in front of distance sensor etc.
The information that the robot receives from or sends to the other robots/central hub, may be coded as single alphanumeric characters (e.g. 1, 2, 3, a, A, b, B, @, !, etc. ) or as text strings (e.g. Robot1_TurnLeft). For demonstration purposesthe information to be sent can be displayed by your robot on the Serial monitor using the Serial.print() type of functions,
the information to be received can by typed by YOU during the demonstration into the serial monitor and then “sent” to the code as single alphanumeric characters or as text strings. The Arduino code shall receive this information using the Serial.read() or Serial.readString() function and then perform the designated tasks with that information. You may also use the IR remote and its sensor to send information to the robot instead of Serial.read() etc.
If you made a physical robot, you can demonstrate its functionality in real time. Your Arduino can send/receive information (alphanumeric) either through a Bluetooth module and an android phone, or a IR sensor with a remote, or just simply through the Serial monitor on your laptop and the USB wire connecting the computer to the Arduino (It is ok if your robot is tethered to the computer by a USB wire during the demonstration).
Collective Behavior slides
Clearly explain the collective behavior of the robots through an overall activity diagram (flowchart). Refer to the flowchart instructions above (from the individual robots section)
This flowchart should clearly show the interaction of input/output information between each robot (and the central hub if needed). Be concise but complete!
If you want some extra credit now show and explain the MATLAB code you wrote for the robots to collaborate. Hopefully, it does what you explained via the activity diagram. In interest of time, you don’t need to go over every line of the code. The activity diagram, well explained, should suffice. To show the code, you may include the snippets of the code (with sufficient zoom) or you may just scroll through the code while sharing it on a screen (with sufficient zoom).
Now, run the MATLAB file so that the viewer can see the robots (represented as dots) move as expected. Explain as needed.
Entrepreneurial Aspects slides
Budget: Even though you only made a prototype (a scaled version of the actual product), what will be the cost of the actual market ready system? Make a reasonably accurate estimate, justified by research and analysis of the cost of various components, labor, etc. You may provide references.
Is it a new concept? Has something similar been done before? Mention what already exists in the market (direct competitors or similar products). You may provide information/links and references for these products.
How is your design adding value to what already exists? How does it compare to others in cost and other aspects? Explain how will it better address the customer needs. Why should we/customers etc. invest in your design. (Some considerations: sometime people like to pay more for the brand value, sometimes your product can target only a special market not general population)
Summary slide(s)What lessons you have learned while working on this project, in terms of engineering design, entrepreneurial mindset, management, working in the team etc.
What would you do differently if you were to do this project again?
Summarize the whole presentation in a few sentences. Provide a layout of all that you presented today but focusing on the key points.
References slide(s)
Include the references used as a numbered list in an appropriate format. It should include citations for all the references used (e.g. source of information for problem context, budget, existing products, sources for any images/pictures, etc.). Citation number should also appear in the slide where information was referred.
In interest of time, you don’t need to go over the references just leave them as the final slide.
i have attached a sample of the project.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a product design question and need an explanation

Learning Goal: I’m working on a product design question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Q1 Ee-Coal-Eye International Inc., one of the largest manufacturers of bakery products and snacks in Greenland, makes croissants on a specialized processing line in Nuuk, Greenland. A recent rise in the demand for croissants called for an increase in output. The CEO of Ee-Coal-Eye hired a consultant named George to find a cost-effective way to increase the production rate of the line to meet the demand. George hired you as a summer intern because he knew that you took 2.852x. The croissant production system is presented in Figure 1. A simplified view reduces this to five major stages, as shown in Figure 2.Stage 1 (Kneading) Flour and water are automatically fed into a removable bowl of a spiral kneading machine. Additional ingredients in small quantities are added manually.
Stage 2 (Forming) Dough from Stage 1 is fed into the lamination machine and then fed into croissant making machine.
Stage 3 (Proofing) Croissants remain under strictly controlled uniform temperature and humidity conditions for a precise amount of time as the croissants rise to their final size.
Stage 4 (Baking) Croissants are baked at a precise temperature for a precise amount of time.
Stage 5 (Wrapping) Croissants are wrapped and transferred to warehouse.
No buffers were present in the line when you and George made your first visit.Ee-Coal-Eye needed to produce 11,700 croissants/hour to meet the recent increase in demand and they knew that the line, as currently configured, could not meet this demand.With current equipment, Ee-Coal-Eye observed that stage 4 (baking) is the stage that is slowest while it is operational. That is, if all stages are operational, stage 4 will limit the production rate of the line. Its working production rate (ie, its production rate while it is operational and not prevented from working by starvation or blockage) is 12,000 croissants/hour. The working production rates of other processes were therefore reduced to 12,000 croissants/hour. The equipment is automated, so variations of processing times are negligible.George collected several months of machine failure data to check the in uence of machine failures at Ee-Coal-Eye. He found the following:Isolated efficiency of kneading = 99.38%
Isolated efficiency of forming = 87.62%
Isolated efficiency of proofing = 99.69%
Isolated efficiency of baking = 99.75%
Isolated efficiency of wrapping = 99.47
Q2 Homework مستحق في Apr 5, 2022 18:00 +03Your brother-in-law is starting up a mass market food business. He has two uncles for whom he has great affection. One of them is an ophthamologist, so he wanted the big E of an eye chart in the name of his business. He also wanted the word “eye”. The other one is a coal miner, and he wanted to honor him as well. Consequently, he decided to call the business the E-Coal-Eye Food Manufacturing Company.To demonstrate his respect for you, he asked you to design his robotic production line for making sandwiches.There are four operations in the making of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and each operation is performed by a robot. Robot A cuts the bread; Robot B spreads the peanut butter on one of the slices; Robot C spreads the jelly over the peanut butter, and Robot D assembles the sandwich.The times required for these operations are 40 seconds, 30 seconds, 60 seconds, and 50 seconds, respectively, and never vary. E-Coal-Eye wants you to make a transfer line using these robots. You are considering transfer mechanisms that operate at a fixed, common cycle time, even when there are buffers. (Here, by cycle time we mean the time between operations.) This cycle time must be the longest time of any of the operation. That is, if you build a four-machine, three buffer line, the cycle time would have to be 60 seconds, and robots A, B, and D would be idle 20 seconds, 30 seconds, and 10 seconds each cycle, respectively.reliability: Robots have operation-dependent failures. Assume that the mean time between failures for each operation A, B, C, D is 5 hours of working time, and that the mean repair time is 1 hour.inventory cost: Assume a cost of $1 for each sandwich in a buffer. Assume that all buffers have size 3 or greater.demand: Sandwiches must be produced at a long range average rate of 45 per hour.
