about our Project
that moves on rails, fills up a glass of water at the start, carries and
discharges it on the finish location.
specifications of the rails are as follows:
dimensions of the rail path are as follows:
are not scaled.
the finish line, a container will be placed as it is shown in the figure
to collect the discharged water.
Limitations and Requirements:
time should be minimised.
of water transported after 5 cycles should be maximised. (The minimum requirement
is 1 full glass)
of the vehicle should be minimised.
satisfaction (A measure of how close the predicted performances to the
V DC voltage will be available at the rails all along the path.
allowed time for 5 cycles is 5 minutes.
amount of total discharged water after 5 trips of the vehicle is 1 full
water filling unit will be provided at the start line as a part of the
mechanism will be part of the vehicle and should be designed by the team.
