Designing a Mars Lander

For the start of our design we tested all of the three bots on the mars lander and disguised what one was the best out of the three. We all decided that the Mawson was the best design because of its solar panel charging and its suspended wheels, but the other two hade it’s good things to like the Mammoth. The Mammoth was two wide and two slow but had good hydraulics. The Continuum was to slim and would of been easy to tip over if going over rocks and it also had a glass cove witch would easily smash, but it had a good camera, one it went way further out and zoomed in more than the other two. So basically my design had the body and wheels from the Mawson the camera of the Continuum and the hydraulics from the Mammoth. What we need two do know is to make a sketch of what it would look like when we make it. This will be helpful to know what we need to fix about it and what we need to improve about our design. For my hand made design I made an own design and then tested them out with the sphero and I figured out what we need to change about my original design and what was the best way to in prove it.
A Bit About Mars

The Martian terrain is a dry and stale ground it is covered with massive landslides and rocky mountains. But the there is two different sides on mars one is super rock and the other is  super smooth there is very little known about this and that this is on of mars unsolved mysteries, one of the theories is that a meteorite hit mars. Mars terrains are basically are rocky desert and if you were going to design a mars rover you would have to make it wide so it doesn't tip over and you will have to make the wheels big and grippy so it doesn't slide and so it can get ofer bigger rocks.

When building a mars rover you will need to make it with:

The Martian atmosphere has under half the amount of force at earth's atmosphere witch means that if your were on mars you could jump six times higher than you could jump on earth. The Martian atmosphere is made out 95.32% carbon dioxide 2.7% nitrogen 1.6% argon 0.13% oxygen 0.08 carbon monoxide
Using Javascript With Shero

JavaScript is one of the most popular types of programming in the world it is the type of commanding that is in scratch, it is when you write something on a ipad and that the charter does that action. It is really easy to program with the Sphero, all you need to do is to download the sphero app and connect it with a Sphero that you can buy from the warehouse. Once you have done that you could go on to Sphero EDU to learn how to control it, then start commanding by dragging commands down from the app on your ipad and pressing start.    

A Bit about Robots

I know that robots are a huge study in the future
Technology and that they are being used for stuff like helping humanity using them for fun like the sphero and even for newly made high tech weapons.     

This is my design of a mars rover and what it needs to get past the terrain.
I think My design of my mars lander will work because it has has good base it is steady it's not thin so it won't tip the wheels are thick and will get over the terrain, and it is my own design out of my group this was the design I built. It may need a bit more work on the cover but so far it travels it turns and it is strong and fast.

Supporting my Hypothesis

I think this is what’s going to happen because…
  • Our Robot design has this shape because
  • Its steady and strong and won't tip easily
  • Our Robot will navigate the terrain with these features because
  • We still need to add more things on it but we will build up and build a sensor
  • Our data capturing tools are these because ( think of your first goal)
  • Our lander will be manoeuvred by( .javascript.  describe the remote controls)
  •  The controls are when we put them into a ipad and then our drone does what we put in 
Variables that may affect the outcome...
  • The geological materials
  • Weather
  • Temperature
  • Terrain
  • Breakdowns (repairs)
  • If it does tip  

Today we worked with pick-angels these are little robots that when you change there wires around they move in the way you commanded them to. When we had a turn with it We was able to make it go in a straight line and turn.   

From this we came up with a Mission

Our Mission to Mars for our mars lander is for it to be able to withstand the harsh environment of the Martian terrain.

In my robotics and Programming class, I am learning how to use my programming knowledge to design my mars lander.

On the Ninth of April Me and all of the year nines from Greyhigh school went on a trip to the small village of karma. When I got at school that morning we hat our role call and then left on the busses, it took about twenty minutes to get there. Once we got there we it was split up into four activities and they were the London Dairy Rock Walk, the Miners Rock Pool , Team activity and the History lesson my two favourite Were the London Dairy Rock Walk and the Team  activity.

The Reminisce……….    

2033 september the 29th………. Los Angeles  
A group of seven survivors are in a steel cement bunker under the city of Los Angeles, the bunker is 6  by 15 meters wide and it is on the west side of the city, the survivors names are Shay, Mason, Mark, Jack, Woods, Christa and Emily. The sur vivors are some of the very few left in the world. Overall there are only about  500 million people left in the world, what happened you ask? Well. let me take you back to the day it all started

2032 September the 26th…….Mid Autumn, Three Days Ago

      It was the year 2032, the 26 of September, it was the day of the dead or what you might call it judgment day.  President James Palma declared nuclear war on North Korea . The first missile strike sent from North Korea hit Washington D.C. the second hit Vagus killing millions. America send a full attack of 12 nuclear missiles straight to Kim Jong Un's doorstep from then on the entire world went straight to war. Explosion after explosion, there were no allies no friends no nothing, in this war  everyone was shooting everyone.

Three days went by and the entire world was a wasteland. There were only very few survivors and the air was extremely toxic and deadly if exposed to. There is one big nuclear fallout cloud covering the entire sky that rains radiated acid.
Oh and did I mention there is a new disease called radacis that can turn you into a mutant or what I call them reapers. When you catch this disease makes you mad it take control of your body by turning you into a cannibalism
Present day 2032 September The 29th ………. Los Angeles

The seven survivors have just received a radio transmission from the U.S. Navy: “Sierra five five Fox leader to Bravo Whisky Delta calling all survivors! Repeat! Calling all survivors! This is the U.S. military. We are sending a military rescue pursuit up the west. The Bravo point is Los Angeles.  It will take us five days to reach that point. If there are any survivors please respond.”

Day 1
The survivors are running low on resources of water and food which means the have to leave the bunker to salvage what fresh food and water they can they drew straws on who should leave they needed two people to guard the bunker  emily who was nine months pregnant got automatic pass to stay at the bunker once they had finished drawing straws it was christa who got to stay at the bunker with emily. They left at 7:00am.

The survivors were roaming  the streets of Los Angeles or what's left of it. And there was nothing in any warehouse or supermarket and we know why looters looters are people who don't care about anyone else if they even see you they will hunt you down like a bloodhound and feed you to reepers obviously they have taken all of the food to one of their camps.  The sun was setting and this is a bad sign because it meant it was going to be night in a few hours and that's when the reapers come out. There was only little hope for finding food for the survivors  “we need to head back to the bunker or we’ll be dinner scraps for the reapers” said shay that's when they stumbled upon a lotters camp, and what they saw something  they couldn't turn round to it was mountains  of food they had enough to feed a small town for weeks. They had to get there hands on some of it so the came down with two trolleys from an empty warehouse and took as much as the could by this time there was only a glimpse of sun left that's when the realized the needed to start moving. They bolted down the streets of los angeles and kept a tight hand on the food the they reached the bunker. Emily opened the door and they all came in with the food then they decided to wait the rest of the days in the bunker for the military to come.

Day 4
It’s been three days since anyone has left the bunker tomorrow at 12:oopm the military wil be here but there is a problem woods left the bunker two days ago to investigate a strange noise coming from outside the bunker and never came back so mark went looking for him yesterday and he hasn't came back either we all decided to go out and have a look for woods and mark when we left the bunker we saw nothing but a trail of blood going round the back of the bunker we decided to follow it it came down the bank which the bunker under it came round to a river and stopped and there was mark's body lying face down in a ditch. His neck was slit and had chunks of hi ripped out, no doubt this was a reaper's doing. We went to flip hi over so we could bury his body when we flipped him we saw his face and it wasn't him it was someone else wearing his jersey… that's when we heard this noise down the stream it was like the growl didn't sound like are reaper more like a much bigger reaper, just then woods and mark came sprinting from the bushes yelling RUN! RUN! RUN! Get out of here after them ran at least twenty reapers were charging them. Then came this type of mega super titan reaper about three times the size of a normal reaper. We ran and we ran right then this sound rang our ears BOOM! BANG! BANG! it was the military firing multiple rounds at the reapers, by 30 seconds those reapers and that super reaper was nothing but dust. The captain of the pursuit said  we're a small bit early but you're still welcome to come aboard.

When we were all on the military convoy truck we asked woods and mark what happened they said that lotters taken them hostage and took took all of our stuff including marks jersey the they were asking questions like where's your camp is there anyone else with you when the reapers came out and started attacking the lotter camp  luckily they were able to escape just in time. After all that they took us to a military civilian bunker somewhere in the State of Washington  this this bunker was much bigger and could hold 2,000 people but there were only about 900 civilians and about 300 soldiers.

The End
