What are the desired features of the robot?
- Appearance (human-friendly, technical, efficient)
- Gripping ability
- Degrees of freedom, number, type
Communication with the robot?
- Voice commands
- Remote Access
- The degree of autonomy
- Remote monitoring
- Data transfer method: wired, wireless, CAN, optical...\\ - Other?
- How to avoid dangerous situations

- Fault handling situations
To summarize the results:
|•||Present 3-5 concepts, where the ceiling robot will perform different tasks in different environments|
|•||Describe the main characteristics and requirements in A4 paper|
|•||Create colorful draft about the robot in operation drawn on a A3 paper|
|•||Create 3D animations|
|•||Present the results in final report, presentation and poster|
Project progress in Fall_2009
The official kick-off of the project was 23.9.2009
The project is started when a sufficient number of people for carrying out key task areas have been assigned for the project. This page presents the documents and presentations from the Ceilbot project during Fall 2009.
|Home robot team||Sportshall robot team||Fire fighter robot team||Mapping team||House construction consultation|
|Home robot team develops a concept to be utilized at home for fetching things, cleaning and vacuuming. It utilizes a sophisticated trunk-like actuator.||Sports hall robot team develops a concept for large halls where the robot can participate in ball games and perform cleaning and ball-picking tasks.||Fire fighter robot team develops a fire fighter robot for large public areas for rapid in-situ fire extinguishing.||Mapping team presents a ceil-walking robot and concentrates on sensing and navigation activities of Ceilbot.||House construction consultant tells about structures and mounting methods to be used for safe mounting of the Ceilbot.|
