Which problem are you trying to solve?
Many applications require having leveled surface regardless of any out disturbances such as transporting hot drinks and
How are you going to solve the problem?
Our Project is designed to work as a stationary or mobile self-stabilizing platform depending on the application that it
is used for. It has wheels that can be wirelessly controlled by the user
What is the impact of your project?
it will attract restaurant owners, as it will save a lot of money by hiring fewer waiters/waitresses, and reducing the
cost of having broken plates or spilt hot soups or drinks
How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?
All components are pre-manufactured like motors, pre-made brackets, sensor module, and wheels kit. Therefore, they can
be assembled in an open lab.
Describe your project in detail
The project consists of two platforms: lower and upper. The lower platform is attached to wheels that are controlled by
the user. The current position of the upper platform is continuously checked through a sensor then compared to the
position at which the platform is required to sustain. two motors are responsible for compensating to any unwanted
movement of the upper platform by making them move in the opposite direction of any movement detected by the sensor.
