Planned Work: (Requirements are ordered by due date)

Work - Meeting: 2.00 Time - Hours due Sept. 3, 2018

Group meetings for alignment, planning and decision making.

Work events:
Sept. 8, 2018 1.00 Time - Hours Done by Timx

Meeting with Tibi on the project, wrapping up Milestone 1

Sept. 6, 2018 1.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Meeting with Tim on the project, wrapping up Milestone 1

Aug. 27, 2018 0.10 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Presented the project to Ahmed and Hadi, during a meeting at the Sensorica lab. Helped them find their role in the project.

Work - Documenting: 10.00 Time - Hours due Sept. 3, 2018

Document Information mining findings in a structured way, to induce stigmergy, to help other organizations use and build on the information, and to allow the sponsor of the project to use the information.

Work events:
Sept. 4, 2018 1.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Completely restructured the Milestone 1 document. Communicated new orientations to the group.
The main goal was to make the structure more transparent, exposing the workflow during the design phase, and to make the document more interesting for the network of participants.

Work - Information mining: 10.00 Time - Hours due Sept. 3, 2018

Find information about distance sensors and encoders, electrical motors, electrical motor drivers and motion control algorithms.

Work events:
Sept. 23, 2018 1.50 Time - Hours Done by Ahmed

Proposing a cable length detection solution using cable coloring and image processing. It is based on coloring the cable on predefined distances, and detecting the segments using a PI camera and a lens

Sept. 18, 2018 0.50 Time - Hours Done by Khalid

Pros and cons of indoor positioning using Wi-Fi

Sept. 17, 2018 4.00 Time - Hours Done by Khalid

Indoor Positioning System for spiderman Robot, The main objective of this part is to describe how to determine the indoor position for Spider-Man Robot and recommend the best technique can be used.

Sept. 9, 2018 3.00 Time - Hours Done by Ahmed

Writing the transformation matrix equations which are required for positioning the robot in the 3D space

Sept. 6, 2018 2.00 Time - Hours Done by Timx

Sourced numerous research papers and component parts, reviewed with Tiberius and incorporated into the information mining document

Sept. 5, 2018 3.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Continued information mining about motors and controllers, completed the pros and cons table and proposed scores.
Continued info mining on kinematics, interacted with the Hangprinter community and red some new papers.

Sept. 4, 2018 5.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Extensive literature review on cable robots in general, their architecture and kinematics and kinetics. The main objective was to delineate the domain of expertise. Documented the most important findings in the document.

Sept. 4, 2018 2.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Continued to search for academic papers about control systems for CDPM, the ones that are describing similar designs. Recorded findings in the Milestone 1 doc. Improved the narrative of the text.

Sept. 3, 2018 2.00 Time - Hours Done by Ahmed

Presenting several references such as papers, patents, books related to cable controlled robots, as well as some existing projects for cable controlled printers and cameras

Sept. 2, 2018 3.00 Time - Hours Done by Ahmed

Investigating a new design of string configuration that increase the 3D space for camera movement

Sept. 1, 2018 0.75 Time - Hours Done by Ahmed

Investigating several types of sensors and mentioning the pros and cons of each of them

Aug. 31, 2018 2.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Mostly mining about motors and motor controllers. I send email to Sensorica including the technical crowd.

Aug. 29, 2018 0.70 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Worked with Ahmed in parallel, online, on mining information about sensors and encoders. Did some work with Tim before on the same topic. Documented everything in the Milestone 1 doc linked in this process.

Unplanned Work:

Work event: Work - Information mining 2.00 Time - Hours Sept. 22, 2018 Done by alejandro

Kinematics of parallel robots and the relation with speeds and forces. Also the equations to find the position of the end-effector and the structure of the Jacobian Matrix and the specific modifications that is needed to make when it is used a cable instead of a rigid link.

Next processes:

Milestone 0 - Project Administration to Deliver the Spider Rig starting 2018-08-21 ending 2018-09-30

Process notes:

Sensorica affiliates work in closer collaboration with the R&D team of Sponsor to build shared understanding of the current system, its limitations and possible improvements.
Information mining process for assessing state of the art of available systems.
Revise list of requirements.
