Our project.

Project „Battleship“ is one of our pioneer projects.

The purpose is to develop and build a state-of-the-art prototype robot that  is capable of detecting colors and positions of objects in its surrounding autonomously.

The collected data is the used to mark the position of the objects on a map of the battlefield.

Our story.

October 29 – First observation of laboratory and hands on equipment

What a mess! This was our first impression when we entered the laboratory for the first time. But being full of productive optimism and enthusiasm for the project, Tobias Kekule (Hardware engineer), Marian Roebke (Quality Manger) and Tim Hornung (Software engineer) made their way through the mess to evaluate the components available and thereby to be able to plan the implementation of the model. Marian Roebke set up a parts list including the amount of parts available for the components needed. This enables us to track our stock of needed parts in order to prevent unnecessary downtimes of the project’s workflow due to empty stock.

November 04 – Engineering has started

Our Hardware Engineer Tobias Kekule kicked off the first core tasks of the project. The engineering in form of the creation of the CAD model. After several meetings and discussions with the team and also an in-depth analysis with his engineering colleague, our Software engineer Tim Hornung, the first model and the planned implementation of the prototype has been set. Of course, challenges will come up along the way, but we are ready and excited to meet them!

November 07 – First testing on the planned transition

No sooner said then done, our hardware engineer starts off with the first testing of the planned CAD on the actual model. We built the first set-up of our transition to evaluate our model – with success! Our planned implementation seems to work and has passed the first test exemplary.

November 12 – First programmed movements

Stoked by the successful tests of the first transition set up, our engineers Tobias Kekule and Tim Hornung moved on doing what they can do best – build great products with passion.Having both of these masters of their arts working together on the project, it’s no wonder that the next success would not take long to wait for. The first movement of our robots has been programmed successfully. Also, the „tone“ for our final presentation has already been set. So, if you have any request shout them out…

November 14 – Next level compliance management

Our Hardware Engineer Tobias Kekule and Quality Manager Marian Röbke came up with a very creative but effective solution to prevent unwanted espionage and collusion between competitors. It does not only look like one but is in fact a real treasure chest – containing all our hard work, our skills and our technologies for project battelship. We are proud to present you the Soturi Safety System.

November 19 – Unexpected difficulties

 Well, that did not work as planned. In the initial model, which can be seen in the CAD on the right hand side, the movement of the marker should be realised through a cable pulley. Sounds like a good idea? It did to us as well. But the friction caused by the two wheels was too high which caused problems for the engine that had too less power to fulfil the task conveniently. So, how should we go on? Increase the power of the engine, a more powerful transition or come up with another solution?

November 21 – No challenge is too hard

After evaluating the issues of the last engineering session, our engineers came up with a new solution. As more power or a stronger transition would cause a higher stress on the robot itself, we quickly came to the conclusion that the only considerable option is a new set up. This meant hard work for our two engineers, which immediately started to work on it.

We do not just construct – we build with passion.

November 26 – Hard work pays off

Excited about our new solution and driven by the question how it would work in practice, our two engineers met at the laboratory to implement the new CAD model. And hard work pays off – the new model uses now three instead of the initially planned two engines but vanishes the need for a transaxle. Furthermore, the friction has been reduced to a minimum, reducing stress on the construction and maximizing efficiency and accuracy.

December 03 – Time to dress up

Just before the final reunion of the hardware and software, the mechanical set-up of the hardware has been finalised successfully. The engines run, the joints work smoothly and the precision is on point.

While our hardware engineer Tobias Kekule already started to evaluate options for cost reduction, our software engineer Tim Hornung worked on the final implementations for the software.

Now, it’s time to get our suits and dress up for the long awaited „marriage“ (Of hardware & software of course) before we start with the final testing rounds of the integrated system.

December 12 – Final Robot

Two further busy weeks of testing and improving later, our engineers are as proud as they can get. After three loops of tests & improvements, our final robot is set and ready to fulfill the required tasks on time. Needless to say, our quality manager will have a closer look on the product to ensure that all the set quality standards and requirements are met.

Furthermore, it is now time to finalise the offer and the five year financial planning in order to be ready for the final presentation in January.

However, one thing is sure: We are already excited to present the final product to our customer. A product that has been created by us – The project team behind Soturi Robotics.

Created and built by us – with passion.
