My own final task is to create a robot which will use non-violent techniques to
retain animals out of yards. Using the Lego Mindstorm Kit I was in a position to complete
this kind of project. The moment certain pets walk by simply my robot, it throws gears on the
animal to scare this away. It might tell the difference between good family pets and awful
and does not injury them at all.
For several years people have recently been trying to find non-violent ways to retain
animals out of their back yards and away from family household pets. Various attempts have
included motion uncovering sprinklers, electric fences, false smells, and ultrasonic
appear bursts. These devices work in many cases but not in all.
Motion sprinklers spray brief bursts of water after they detect pets or animals.
Some family pets however , love to get wet so the motion sprinklers will never
necessarily focus on all. Ultrasonic sound burst open devices detect when an creature is
near and sends out a two second ultrasonic sound broken. These bursts can be
heard by family pets but not by humans thus they may have trouble figuring out
if the batteries run out or in the next broken. Electric fences can sometimes
hurt animals, including house animals that are in order to be in the backyards. Fake smells
with the animal's foe can also help scare the animal away.
You will discover often undesired animals in my family's back garden. They eat our
fruits from our trees and shrubs, and split up the grass. We have been trying to find even more
effective ways to hold them to a long time.
To get my last project, I decided to make a automatic robot that will identify when an
dog walks because of it. When it picks up an animal, it will eventually throw little objects for
whatever it truly is that transferred. I have not decided what that my own robot will
throw. It really must be harder compared to a sponge, nevertheless cannot be so difficult that it will damage
something. As being a warning to humans, it can make a beep sound before that throws
I built various small parts to set up to make my functioning robot. It is
composed of the launching pad, gear/motor station, the RCX platform, and the
brain. I 1st built the launching system. It is made up of black beams ranging in
size from a single to sixteen. They are put together in series with rearrangements on
the alternative sides using the other direction. They came together to form a
triangular shape with two gears towards the end.
I then attached gears and a motor to the system so that the engine is able
