E 122 D Group 7  Page 3  Introduction Group 7 of E-122 D Engineering Design is proud to present a proposal for the design of a prototype of the Urban  Search and Rescue Robot (USRR) as per the request of the Fire and Police Departments of Hoboken, NJ.  Stephen  Bates, Matthew Dos Santos and Robert Lee-Own will be the lead engineers on the project, designing the structure and  function of the robot to meet the stakeholders' specifications.  The team has submitted this proposal due to its  recognition of the necessity of such a rescue robot in cramped, urban environments, as well as a strong interest in the  software, mechanical and electrical aspects of the project.  Requirements There are a number of people who have direct or indirect stakes in the success and design of the process.  The major  direct stakeholders of this project are those who will be using the USRR directly.  The needs of the Fire Department,  the Police Department, and the First Aid Squad were carefully considered during the formulation of this proposal.  The  team recognized other stakeholders that had more of an indirect stake in the project.  The shareholders of the  company, the regulating bodies of search and rescue equipment, the manufacturer (considering large scale production  of the USRR), and the marketing, sales, and quality control teams that would be in place throughout production of the  USRR were all determined to be the indirect shareholders.  The direct stakeholders have several clear requirements  for the robot.  1. The USRR must include an on-board battery which will provide full power for at least one hour of operating time.  2. The USRR will be run by a microcomputer that will control DC motors and will provide signals of digital output that  activate auxiliary onboard devices.  The microcomputer will require Data Acquisition functions to acquire both  analog and digital data from sensors. 3. The USRR microcomputer will communicate with the PC of the remote operator through an RS-232 serial  communication using an RS-232 Bluetooth adapter to a distance of at least 100 meters.  4. The USRR will consist of two wheels controlled independently by the user through the microcomputer.  Start/stop,  speed and direction of rotation will be dictated by the operator through the serial communication link and carried
