Milestone 1: (26th of April)
Completion of the Online NI LabVIEW Training Course (Core 1 and Core 2) by all team members.
Milestone 2: (9th of May)
Submit Project Proposal (300-500 words in MS Word or MS PPT format)
Demonstrate usage of NI myRIO and LabVIEW to control at least one actuator/motor or acquire from at least one sensor.
* LabVIEW Code submission and review will be required from Milestone 3-6
Milestone 3: (8th of June)
Requirement: Preliminary design and prototype with obstacle avoidance implemented.
Demonstrate: Create a prototype that moves forward avoiding obstacles.
Milestone 4: (25th of July)
Requirement: Demonstration of navigation/localisation and obstacle avoidance.
Demonstrate: Move from location A to location B while avoiding obstacles. Then at location B, wait a few seconds then move to location C.
Milestone 5: (29th of August)
Requirement: Navigation and obstacle avoidance.
Demonstrate: Move from location A to location B avoiding obstacles. Then from location B, move to location C speeding through a curve. Then go back to location A through uneven terrain.
Milestone 6: (3rd of September) Requirement to Qualify for Finals.
Requirement: Building an executable
Demonstrate: Package your entire code into an executable and deploy a “start-up VI” onto myRIO so that the program will be auto-loaded when myRIO is powered on.
- At least one team member must attend all online training sessions for the team to qualify for the live final.
- Code submission and review will be required to pass Milestones 3-6.
