Design a remote control transmitter, Mechanical Engineering

You are required, as part of a small team, to design a remote controlled buggy that can be made to move forwards, backwards and from side to side. The basic buggy and motors are provided. Your task is to design a remote control transmitter, receiver and motor drive circuitry  that is to be used to control the buggy.

You will be required:

1. To present your initial work at an Interim viva. This will take the form of a verbal presentation where each student will contribute to a progress report introducing the project, describing the overall project plan and assessing the progress of the project. The assessment will be aimed at the visual and verbal communication skills of the student. Also, a group mark will be given for group cohesiveness and efficiency. NB: You will be required to produce your own personal project plan which is to be derived from the overall plan. THIS IS TO BE SUBMITTED AT THE INTERIM VIVA.

A total of 30% of total marks will be given for this assessment. 20% will be given for individual contribution, 5% will be given for the level of group cohesiveness and professionalism. NB: all members of the group will get the same mark for this part of the assessment. A further 5% will be allocated to the Project Plan.

2. To present an individual Project Reportfor assessment.40% of the marks will be for an individual project report, submitted in advance of the final viva and indicating your own personal contribution to the project.

3. To attend a Final Viva: Final Viva where you will present, as part of a group, your buggy anddiscuss its design and development. Your buggy, if sufficiently complete, will then attempt to traverse a pre-defined course to demonstrate its overall ability. Extra credit will be given for buggies achieving this stage.

25% will be allocated for individual's personal contribution (assessed at Viva).

5% will be allocated, as a common mark, for the completed project.
