HRI Human-Robot Interaction (Demonstration) It is widely believed that, in the future, robots will take over dangerous jobs. Even today robots are used in the military to defuse land mines. Therefore, companies will be looking for talented individuals who can program these robots. In the end, robotics is quickly integrating into modern day life, creating a safer and more productive world. This event will access students basic programming knowledge using a humanoid robotics platform. A team of two contestants will be evaluated on their ability to develop, document, execute and deploy a computer program for a humanoid robot to complete a series of tasks. This challenge will recognize outstanding students for excellence and professionalism in the fields of HRI Human-Robot Interaction, Computer Science, Computer Programming, and Robotics. CLOTHING REQUIREMENT Contestants must wear SkillsUSA official attire or official attire for the occupational area of the demonstration. For men: Official SkillsUSA white polo shirt with black dress slacks, black socks, and black leather shoes. For women: Official skills USA white polo shirt with black dress slacks or skirt, black socks or black or clear seamless hose, and black leather shoes. These regulations refer to clothing items that are pictured and described at: If you have questions about clothing or other logo items, call or ELIGIBILITY Open to active SkillsUSA members enrolled in CTE programs that are associated with or include Human-Robot Interaction, Computer Science, Computer Programming, or Robotics. EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS 1. Supplied by the technical committee: a. 110 volt outlet for each work station b. Timer c. Access to the Choregraphe and Webots for NAO simulation software d. Graph paper e. Items robot will retrieve f. NAO robots 2. Supplied by the contestants: a. A PC laptop computer and charger that meets the following minimum specifications: GHz CPU (dual or quadcore recommended) 2. 3GB of free disk space MB RAM 4. Graphics OpenGL capable graphics adapter with at least 128 MB of RAM is required (recent nvidia or ATI graphics adapter recommended) 5. OS Windows 7 / XP 6. A USB port 7. Administration rights (or admin password) to load competition software on the laptop. b. 25 Tape Measure c. Engineering Notebook d. Calculator (or calculator software on the computer) e. Pencils f. All competitors must create a onepage résumé and submit a hard copy to the technical committee chair at orientation. Failure to do so will result in a 10-point penalty. SCOPE OF THE CONTEST The contest will consist of the following parts: 1. Knowledge Performance a. A reflective paper b. A presentation c. An exam 2. Skill Performance a. On Site Programming Challenge Each component of the event is described below. 1. Knowledge Performance NOTEBOOK: The purpose of the notebook is for the Contestants to write a reflective paper that outlines an innovative way a humanoid robot could be implemented into everyday life in the future. The paper should also contain ideas and recommendations on how others could implement the idea. The notebook must be brought to the contestant orientation meeting. The format listed below must be followed: 1. Notebook Details a. The notebook must be an official SkillsUSA three-ring binder (two inch # from e-group). b. The notebook must not contain more than 20 pages (40 surfaces). Note: A surface is only that material which can be pasted or glued to a notebook page. Any pockets, foldout pages, individual materials contained in plastic sleeves, multiple pages or similar features will count as additional surfaces and will be subject to penalty, except where specifically stated otherwise. Pages may be plasticized without affecting the scores. c. The notebook should be organized in the following format: 1. Title Page The title page must include the name of the event and title of the innovative idea, chapter name, school address and the names of the presenting team members. 2. Introduction Provide a brief description of the idea, not to exceed one page. This statement should provide a brief and concise description or overview of your idea. 3. Table of Contents The table of contents should indicate page numbers. All surfaces should be numbered and the information should be organized according to appropriate sections as indicated below. 4. Section I Objectives Objectives should be specific. 5. Section II Impact Describe what you feel the impact would be after the integration of a humanoid robot into everyday human life. 6. Section III Benefits Explain how your ideas would benefit society. PRESENTATION: The purpose of the presentation is to provide the judges with an understanding of your idea, how the idea was decided upon, and thoughts or recommendations of how others could implement your idea. a) Presentation is a minimum of 5 minutes and a maximum of 10 minutes in length. b) Time Penalty: 5 points will be deducted for every 30 seconds (or fraction) under the five minute timeframe, and or for each 30 seconds (or fraction) over the ten minute time frame. Time is started when the presentation begins. c) Both members of the team must participate in the presentation. Exam: The exam will consist of basic geometry and choregraphe programming knowledge. 2. Skill Performance On Site Programming: Using Webots for NAO and Choregraphe software, students will program the NAO robot to perform a series of tasks provided to them by the technical team. The programming component will test students skills using a variety of robotics sensors, such as movement, vision, and color recognition. Below is a list of some potential tasks the robot will need to complete: 1. The robot will need to locate an object, go pick it up, and bring it back to the starting point. 2. The robot will need to identify a specific object out of three (based on size, color, or type), go retrieve a specific object, put it on a shelf, and return to the starting point. 3. The robot will need to identify three unique objects, put a specified object in a trash can, a specified object on a shelf, and bring a specified object to a predetermined location and place the object in the outstretched hand of one of the contestants. In each scenario, the robot will need to explain what it is doing while it is performing the tasks. The students will use the Choregraphe and Webots for NAO software to program the NAO robot to conduct a series of tasks (like some of the ones above) in a virtual environment. Prior to developing the programming, students will need to develop a programming flowchart that outlines the program flow. The simulated tasks will be submitted at the end of the event to the judges. The judges will review the contestants submissions and pick the top three solutions to the challenge. The top three simulations will be downloaded to the NAO robot and demonstrated to people attending the SkillsUSA event at a time specified by the judging team.
