Each robot team will choose one area of the robot project where engineering analysis was applied to the robot that includes the following:
Objective of analysis
Method of analysis
Results, which can be in table or plot form. Comparison of theory to experimental results wherever possible.
Free Body Diagrams, if any motion analysis performed.
Discussion of results
How was analysis applied in robot project?
Discussion of accuracy of the theoretical analysis.
What additional improvements could have been done if there where additional time in the project?
Length of Robot Report 2-3 pages, neatly organized, typed, and formatted. Appendixes can be added to report.
Resources for the Robot Report
All analysis used in the turntable project are suitable for the robot report. In addition, some teams may want to look in depth at mechancial componets or other areas of machine design. Some resrouces are:
General Engineering Resources are a list of various resources on the web.
Standard handbook of machine design by Shigley. The link will work when you are on UCSD campus, since it is through the library.
