Project Introduction
Project Description
Phase 1
While Vehicles are available in vehicle dispenser
Robot picks one up
Takes it to the testing area
Determine what type it is
Places it on the appropriate block

Project Description Continued

Phase 2
Robot will interact with user by asking questions
Robot will make an intelligent decision using knowledge
gathered from the user

Phase 3
Robot will deliver the vehicle to the final destination

Robots Modeling Human

They dont really attempt to model human internal
mental processes
Procedures for solving problems are preprogrammed
More actions may be performed but they are done at a much higher

Non-human approaches to solving problems

Programs that use non-human strategies to solve problems are
often more successful than their human counterparts
This is true when system performance is the only measure of the
robots successfulness

Importance of AI
in the Robotic Industry
Artificial Intelligence for abnormal situations
Extra sensors, adding more knowledge to the
system, helps the robots to perform even in the
event of accidents or other abnormal situations

Artificial Intelligence in user interface

The implementation of an expert system, for user
interface, guides the user in decision making

Intelligent Reactions
Knows if there is no vehicle in the gripper
If a vehicle has been lost then the robot gets another

Knows if three blocks are emptied or filled

In the event of three blocks being filled, a light will turn on
specifying that it is full
In the event that all three blocks are emptied a light shuts off

Knows when no more vehicles remain in the dispenser

A light will turn off
The production will move to the next phase

Expert System Interface

Why is an expert system interface used?
An expert system interface guides the user in
decision making
Expert systems cut down on the amount of mistakes
made by the user

How does it work?

The user is asked to specify how many passengers
If the user enters a value that is out of range then an error message will be
displayed and the user will be asked to enter another value

The computer decides which vehicle would be optimal

The user is asked to specify how many vehicles
If zero vehicles are chosen then
The user is told that this is the optimal vehicle
The user is told to specify a different number of passengers and loops back to the beginning
of that phase

Else the robot packages the specified number of vehicles

The user is given the option of continuing the vehicle selection phases

Artificial Intelligence

Increases production throughput

Makes production safer and more reliable
Lessens the need for human interaction
Guides the user in decision making
Helps eliminate errors in decision making
