Student Projects


Microprocessor Continuous Speed Control for the Fire-fighting Robot

This project was a two semester project for the advanced microprocessors class and a senior project. The student analyzed, designed and built a proportional-integral controller for the speed and navigation control for the fire-fighting robot. The project required the design and implementation of a real-time closed loop control speed controller for a fractional horsepower DC motor. Mathematical analysis and modeling provided a solution which was implemented via a 16 Bit microprocessor which was interfaced to the ultrasonic and optical sensors as inputs and the DC motor as the output.
