Robotic

PART A: STRUCTUAL DESIGN AND MANIPULATIONS 40%

Level 1 (low)

Robot chassis weak – falls apart when handled or run Robot designed from book or web with little modification by the team.

Level 2 (fair)

Robot chassis base structure has some stability Attachments are not precise or repeatable Robot show signs of team’s design ideas

Level 3 (good)

Robot chassis stable but not robust Attachments are somewhat precise and repeatable Robot designed by team

Robot chassis stable and robust Robot displays wide range of capabilities. Attachments perform tasks extremely well and are repeatable Robot is designed by team; design is unique and creative

PART B: LOCOMOTION 20%

Rank 1 (low)

Robot has difficulty traveling the same distance on repeated missions Turns inaccurate or inconsistent

Rank 2 (fair)

Robot travels the defined distance sometimes Turns are sometimes accurate

Rank 3 (good)

Robot travels the defined distance most of the time Turns are reasonably accurate and consistent

Rank 4 (excellent)

Robot travels defined distances accurately and efficiently Turns accurately and consistently

PART C: ORAL COMMUNICATION 20%

Rank 1 (low)

There is little knowledge of why some parts are located as they are on the robot There is little or no understanding of the parts of the robot do The building appears primarily to be DONE by the coach

Rank 2 (fair)

The knowledge of robot structure shows minimal understanding of underlying design, science and technology The building seems primarily DIRECTED by coach

Rank 3 (good)

Knowledge of robot structure shows moderate understanding of underlying design, science and technology Building mostly directed by team members, with HELP from coach

Rank 4 (excellent)

Knowledge of robot structure shows thorough understanding of underlying design, science and technology Building was done by team members

PART D: SENSORS 20%

Rank 1 (low)

Sensors are not used Robot makes no effort to know position on table beyond distance traveled

Rank 2 (fair)

Sensors are occasionally used effectively Robot makes little or no effort to know position on table beyond distance traveled

Rank 3 (good)

Sensors are used effectively Allows for variables like battery wear and obstacles Robot uses various sensors to know position

Rank 4 (excellent)

Sensors guarantee certain actions in every trial Excellent allowance for variables like battery wear and obstacles Robot uses various sensors to know its position accurately at all times
