Rack Attack


The purpose of this report is to walk readers through the conceptual design development of an autonomous transporter that carries a golf ball and shoots it as far as possible. High and low-level design requirements are outlined to discuss intended functionality of the transporter. Preliminary design concepts are presented. An Objective Tree and a Pairwise Comparison Chart are then used to select the best concept based on desired qualities. CAD models of the chosen design are shown. Preliminary calculations for the drive and launch systems are formed and discussed to prove the robot’s ability to succeed at accomplishing the proposed task.
