Project Overview Key FeaturesAutonomous GPS NavigationHazardous Materials Sensor to locate in addition to sample hazardsMain ConsiderationsCan operate in a large open fieldCan locate a hazard in addition to return to start point quicklyNavigation of a variety of terrains with surface obstaclesTeam HazardHawk 2008Design RequirementsAutonomous, electric-poweredGPS enabled, accurate to within 1 meter (3.28 ft)Maximum weight: 35 kg (77.1 lb)Maximum size: 1 meter (3.28 ft) in any dimensionTop Speed: 8 m/s (17.89 mph)Hazard detection in under 1 minute when within 100 meters of hazardTeam HazardHawk 2008Concept Selection Individual ConceptsIndividual Concepts were developedKey Features of interest merged into group concept

Concept Selection Group ConceptTarget Market: Public Service SectorFire Department, Police Department, Hazmat, in addition to other public agenciesPrototype Design FeaturesKey Features Included:Autonomous GPS NavigationInfrared ‘Hazard’ SensorsRetractable Oscillating ArmTank DriveKey Technical ChallengesEstablishing navigational precision in addition to awareness of location using imprecise GPS dataThe Oscillating Robotic Arm:Material in addition to geometry selection as long as a strong, lightweight armKinematicsHazard Sensing MethodologyDetermining optimum search height in addition to orientationDeveloping logic as long as search algorithm

Key Technical Challenges Design of Arm AssemblyMaterial Selection, Member Length, Oscillation SpeedMaterials Considered: Carbon Fiber, PVC, Plywood, in addition to HDPELonger-the-BetterFactor of Safety of 4Optimal:30 in members = 2.3 rad/secKey Technical Challenges Sensor Sensitivity Goal: to search at a height where the conical infrared signal emitted by the hazard has a large diameterHeight constrained by the vehicle size per as long as mance requirementResult: Search at the maximum height in addition to a downward orientationDetection radius is 8.3 in at search height h= 42 in.Key Technical Challenges GPS NavigationSought to determine optimal search directionDue north most accurate approach directionAverage deviation of 2.2 ftDue North Residuals: 1 ft/sec
