Bionic Robot Bird


Introduction


I found inspiration for bionic creature with four degrees of freedom from my teacher's power-points.

The most special joint of a bird is its pair of wings, which, like human hands, can perform many functions. Of course, these wings also have a lot of freedom. Therefore, in my vision, I will use a 180-degree steering gear for each degree of freedom, and the final calculation requires 10 steering gears. All circuit batteries and control templates will be stuffed into the bird's belly, which will make the whole robotic bird more beautiful. After all the programs and hardware are in place, the bird can simulate the amplitude and frequency of the wings of a real bird according to different situations, and can be used to observe the role of the bird's bones in the flight of the bird. In order to complete this project, I will use 3D model the creature, use 3D printing to print the model, and use the Arduino board to control the circuit of the model, and finally put everything together to achieve the goal.

 

Animal Research

(Animal Research)

First of all, we can get that the bird's wings are made of three pieces of bones. The first join has two degrees of freedom to the first bone; one degree of freedom from the first bone to the second bone, and two more degrees of freedom from the second bone to the third one.

(Animal Research)


In animal research, I learned that when a bird is flying, its wings are actually parallel to the body, the fanning part is actually its second bone, which is in the first and third bones. The up and down swing caused by the back and forth rotation is not so large. Therefore, this type of exercise not only allows the bird to consume less energy with each flap, it also increases the frequency of the wing movement.

Schematic Diagram

Pressurized Air Capsule


Designer: HE Ziyu (George)

I knew nothing about CAD design when I joined the USAYPT competition. This is when I have no idea of my future career or a passion to go about. My parents recommended this club which I skeptically attended. It is then that I learned the ambition of this project and the time stamps that would radically help me learn CAD. We have an aggressive schedule which would make me learn the basics of 3d printing, laser cutting and 2d or 3d design. I began slow but quickly started designing more complex designs with less errors. The capsule ended up with a modular design with 2 seperate layers with cutouts to minimize weight. I am still not happy with the design as I could save more weight and increase the efficiency of the capsule. In the end, the capsule has a central balancing unit which would make cargo upright while travelling a narrow tube which barely fits the capsule, propelled by a fan at the start of the tube. The capsule would travel roughly the speed of a jogging person which braking system at the end of the tube. The system has contested in 3 competitions two of which got us a leading prize. This project has helped me lead to my personal project of drone delivery.


Drone Takeout System



When I was in 10th grade, I just learned the basics of computer-aided design and programming. Since I started high school, I have had the ambition and ability to design what I aspire to develop. I want to design a fully autonomous delivery drone network before my application. This is a very ambitious project that requires a lot of effort and learning to achieve. Because I haven't learned any knowledge about integrated control systems or drones yet, it has made the work even more difficult. However, the school has a certain number of customers who use popular delivery platforms to deliver food. During lunchtime, you often see rows of students waiting for pick-up and drop off at the entrance. Even if there are only ten deliveries per day, it will have a significant impact on our lunch break traffic. Drones are a fast and green mode of transportation with high efficiency, as they require minimal manual supervision. I started with after-sales parts and made a prototype, which took most of the time to determine the manufacturing of the drone. After that, I learned enough knowledge about drones to start with the first generation of drone design. I am still in the final step of the first generation design, and the work has already begun the initial construction of the second generation, which will solve most of the problems faced by the first generation.

Magnetic Suspension Car


Designer: ZHANG Yu


This product has 2 parts, the upper part is a structure of a car, the lower part is the railway track, both parts are designed and manufactured by me using 3D modeling software, and produced by 3D printing machine. I have put some strong magnet in the connection part between the car and the track. This is the key part, I use the property that the same pole of different magnet will pull each other, so when the car is on the track, it will kind like float on it, so the movement will be very smooth.

VEX Competition Robot


Designers: ZHANG Yu, FAN Enpei, LIN Luotong


This is a robot designed for the VEX competition. We start from the basic structure, and now we ended up with a full functional robot, it has a four-wheel drive chassis, a retractable grasping device, and a mechanical structure that can raise its arm. We also programmed the robot, so each button of the remote controller has its own function, it can be controlled by the user easily.

Robot for 2019 FRC Competition Deep Space


Name of Works: Robot for 2019 FRC Competition Deep Space

Author: FRC team 7584, Nautilus

Inspiration of ideas:

We designed this robot based on the official title, “Deep Space”, of the 2019 FRC. The front part of the robot are a ball catcher and a baffle catcher controlled by air path. The ball can be passed though the trail and sent in the back of the robot. Because of these two designs, the efficiency can be greatly enhanced in the process of obtaining props and transportation. The baffle gripper can also be opened or retracted with the air path, in order to reduce the size of the robot and increase convenience.

 

The story of work:

On January 6, 2019, the title of the new season of FRC was released by FIRST. In this season with titled " Deep Space", there are three main points which need be focused more for building robots: 1.the transportation and delivery of cargo(balls); 2. the transportation and delivery of hatch (baffle); 3.the lifting in the final stage. According to the three points, the members of the 7594 team came up with many plans in the first conference, such as using elevators to transport props, using shelves to obtain props and so on. After several discussions, we finally decided that the machine based on the machine of 168 foreign teams should be changed to become the final machine.

 

In the winter vacation, the dribble part is the first structure what we build. The middle dribble part was originally designed to use steel to build the transportation track to transport the ball. However, in the actual test, we found that due to the difficulty in cutting the steel and the different size of the ball during the game, the ball might not pass successfully if the track is made by steel, because of the size of gap to transport the ball. Thus, we changed steel to PVC pipes that provide more space and the softness. Several methods for ascending the high stairs were considered during the construction, but were ultimately decided that did not make this part, due to the car's design and weight. In this design, the baffle is grabbed with Velcro.

 

During the FRC, we got the rookie inspiration award and the rookie maximum score award, but we also found some problems with the car. Because of insufficient protection measures, the beam in the front part was bended because of collision, and the grasping ability of Velcro was not as good as what we expected in the actual competition. Thereby, during the summer, we rebuilt the car, reinforced all the protection of orientation and external beams and wires, and changed the baffles from a Velcro design to a hook structure. The front wheels were also replaced with ohms wheels. Finally, in August in HangZhou RCC, we achieved a good result in the fourth league.
