The current project is aimed to design and build a robot named INKAROBOT, with automatic mobility and remote communication with a central host. This robot is made to participate in several robotics competitions in Japan: 2nd YAO city ROBOT FAIR in February 2010 and in ROBOCON Japan in July 2010.
The proposed research will give to the university: The practical knowledge of how to successfully create a robot and the theoretical knowledge so we can discuss and reflect about the current situation of robotics in our university and in our country.
This document will present to the reader the requirements and the objectives set by the research team to properly conduct and conclude this project.
Robotics has been one of the most important milestones achieved by us during 20th and 21st century. The advancement of technology and revolution in the capacity of microchips have given rise to a condition, where we are now talking about building a robot with equivalent or better capacities than human beings.
In only less than 50 years, robotics has evolved in such way that plays an important role in key areas of society. The future of robotics is very exciting, and allures the young and adults alike.
The research centers dedicated to robotics in Perú are becoming competitive every day. These centers are developing new models of robots and participating in several contests.
The current project looks to place USMP as one of the top universities in the field of robotics by creating a research and development center formed by teachers and students to research, design and create robots in mechanics, electronics and systems level.
The current project is aimed to design and build a robot named INKAROBOT, with automatic mobility and remote communication with a central host.
The current document is a result of analyzing the problems, aims, requirements and research methodology of the project.
