Merlin System Robotics has given the Nottingham Trent University the opportunity to conduct research projects working with the Miabots. Firstly investigating artificial swarm intelligence and for a portable charging station for the Miabots. This report considers the latter. The aim of the principal project is design a new system for the Miabots. They are controlled with Artificial Intelligent, this means that you can order a task and the Miabots complete it without any further instructions. The other part of the project is develop a portable charge station, make a prototype, check its functionality, ease of assembly and the design. This kind of portable charge station is not current on the market. The function of it is to charge the Miabots when away from the main power supply. This is in order to allow them to continue the task without returning to the main charging point. This charge station should not have a wire to a power supply because the robots need to carry it in a stage so they can charge anywhere. The results of this report will give indication to the best options for making a portable charge station considering materials, design, batteries, costs and marketing the final product.
