NAsA JPL Mars exploration System Team
In order to further explore and expand on Mars, NASA JPL has assigned us to build a system that will use a 3D Printer to create an infrastructure on the desolate surface of Mars. The project has been divided into three parts, with a designated team for each; A 3D Printer, a robotic assembly, and a system that makes sure the other two can work seamlessly together. This project will benefit the exploration of Mars and further the technology of building new infrastructures there.
For our project, we will be creating a seamless interface between a 3D printer and a robotic assembly. Our team will be building a system that will be able to operate on Mars. In order to further explore and expand on Mars, NASA JPL has assigned us to build a system that will support and connect these two systems. Such systems will need various subsystems in order to correctly operate with one another and to allow for the most efficient input and output of the systems. This will also fall to us and will involve creating a tray unit system and a possible filter and collection method for the materials need to print.
The Mars 3D printer will create bricks that will be used to build infrastructures by using Mars resources.
The function of the robotic assembly is to collect the printed products from the 3D printer system and assemble them to build a structure on Mars. It may also collect soil and filter it in order for it to be used by the 3D printer.
The function of the system should be to insure a seamless interface and make sure the input and outputs of both projects are correctly satisfied.
The system must clean the input and output trays of the 3D printer
Will ensure the printer can complete an accurate product without errors
The system must insure a seamless interface between the 3D printer and Robotic assembly
The two main parts of the system must be able to work together in order to ensure the correct outcome is achieved
The system should make sure each part has enough power to work properly
This would just help to maximize the efficiency of the system as well as give the customer information from an easily obtainable source
The system must be able to handle any sized object that the printer outputs
This is to insure the seamless interface between printer, system and robotic assembly
The system must be able to communicate with NASA JPL
In order for the system to complete tasks for NASA, they must be able to control it
The system should be able to keep track of the Robotic Assembly location
The complete system must be able to stay aware of all sub-systems so that any traveling component do not get lost
The system must meet the necessary safety standards (OSMA, IAASS)
Mandatory to ensure safety of everyone involved
The systems power supply should provide the needed amount of wattage for the entire system
In order to function properly, the power supply must provide the system with enough power
