Design Methodology and Behavior Based Robotics Laboratory

Mission: Education (Undergraduate, Master's, Doctorate), Research

Founding date: 2011

Laboratory Sponsor: Atılım Üniversitesi

In engineering design process, conceptual design involves informal description of functions and intended behaviours, which will be elaborated towards a well-defined engineering system in terms of the physical components and corresponding physical behaviours at the end of the complete design cycle. Intended behaviours should be represented and simulated by a domain-independent approach for conceptual design of mechatronic systems. Design Methodology and Behaviour Based Robotics Laboratory is dedicated to investigate design methodologies for mechatronic design artifacts, to develop and implement a systematic behaviour based design methodology for robots at the conceptual design level.

COMPLETED/ONGOING PROJECTS IN THE LABORATORY

Behavior Based Modeling at Conceptual Robot Design and Desktop Design of Educational Robots

Relevant Institution/ Organization: Atılım Üniversitesi
Beginning-ending date: 01.02.2011-31.01.2013
Summary: This research project is focused on the development of a behaviour based design methodology which is composed of conceptual representation including functional decomposition, modelling and simulation of the intended operational behaviour for a mechatronic system using Discrete Event System Specification formalism and Petri Nets, and implementation of the behavior on a distributed physical structure (called Desktop Design Model) with all mechatronic/mechanical/ electronic elements and interfaces independent of geometric and dynamical parameters of the system. Behaviour based design methodology is implemented on educational robots and the completed case studies are a line following robot, a dog robot a cockroach robot, an pick packing AGV and a frog robot.
