System Specification Document

here's a rough draft of the system specification document.

ECE 453
Software Practicum


System Specifications Document


Purpose :
This document is to provide a description of the higher level functionality of a prototype defense application designed to utilize the Adaptive Warfare Laboratory in Riggs 15.

Description of equipment:
Two Pioneer robot platforms will be equipped with a camera, laptop, and a USB driven foam dart gun. These two rovers will be controlled by users over a web interface, and may use the sensor feeds in Riggs 15 as well.

Functionality:
The objective is to create a system that will allow two users to interact with their rover and compete with each other, using a web interface to control the features on the rovers remotely.
This web interface will have a video feed from the on-board camera. This interface will also provide the controls for navigating the rover, controlling the pan, tilt, and zoom on the camera, and controlling the aiming and firing of a foam dart gun. There will also be a proximity sensing system to determine objectively if the dart from one user hits the target, and the result of this will be returned to the user through the web interface.
The rover will have the capability to move forwards and backwards, as well as be able to turn. It's movement will be controlled by the user through the interface.
The camera on the rover will be controlled by the user, and will have the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom. The camera will also deliver an image feed to the user that will be shown on the interface.
The foam dart gun will interface with the user and have the options to pan and tilt. It will also be able to fire a dart. These darts will have some sort of sensing capability to be determined later to establish whether the dart successfully hit the target or missed.

Constraints:
This system is designed to operate within the Riggs 15 laboratory. The sensors, cameras, and networks provided here may be used in the implementation of this system.


Any suggestions, typos, comments, etc. feel free to add them and such.
A revised (as needed) copy will be sent out via email to everyone on Tuesday evening, so we all have it for class on Wednesday.
This is the First Deliverable and 5% of our grade

Additional Notes:
An addendum will be presented by January 28, 2009 that will include frame rate of the camera imaging, camera movement range, steering capabilities, pan and tilt movements of the foam dart gun, and a hit range for the dart sensors.
