Our project idea is to modify a a iRobot vacuum cleaner into a more advanced technology robot that can go on the streets and sidewalks and clean all the mess. An attachment that I would like to put on the Robot is the ability to recycle trash and to create that mess into something useful. Our cleaning robot would of course have some features. One of the features the we would like to attach to the robot is the ability to recycle and to make the mess into something more useful, as mentioned earlier. The reason we chose this feature is because this machine or robot will be in the future, and in the future, most of our resources would be scarce or not easy to get. So with this feature, we are able to recycle trash and to reuse the resources in the trash and to make it into something so we can save resources for as long as possible. Another feature that we decided to choose is for the Robot to be controlled by technology and for it to have different modes of cleaning. This feature will make it much easier to clean. There can be a deep clean and a regular clean. The deap clean could clean everything and is used on the streets and on people’s sidewalks. The regular clean could be able to clean in the houses or something. You could control or see how much progress the robot has made on a device and set the robot goals in how much trash it can pick up in a day. The last feature is that the robot doesn’t acquire a charger. The futures technology won’t acquire a charger, instead the rays sun will be enough to charge up the machine. By using this inexpensive feature, more resources will be saved and more people would want to get this product. The features that I wanted to have for a little bit, but changed my mind later, is something that would make the robot much faster by having a boost. I didn’t choose this because the robot would go to fast and the robot wouldn’t pick everything up, therefore, making it a bad feature. Of course, with great technology and ideas, always comes consequences and sometimes failures. The good things about this piece of technology is that it would help the environment and the economy. This could help recycle and be inexpensive for everyone to use. This could also encourage the people to recycle. This machine could bring back recycling by having a built in recycling machine that turns trash into something useful. These are the most important positive things this robot has to acquire. The negative things that could happen is that a malfunction might occur because the robot is dealing with so many things at the same time. The malfunction could destroy the whole machine and if you try to get it repaired, it will be too expensive. If you take a look at the streets or sidewalks, you will see a lot of cigarettes. If the robot picks them up, they might burn the inside of the robot, therefore causing an explosion, your robot getting destroyed, and danger to the people around the robot at that time. The robots explosion could send tiny metal bits flying everywhere and this could harm people. The mess that the robot picked up could also go everywhere. Another consequence is that since the customers robot malfunctioned or blew up, they are going to be mad. Riots or rebellions might occur and the conclusion of this would be the robots going out of business and all of the resources would be gone and the economy would slow down. As you can see, our idea has positive and negative effects on the economy, environment, and the people. Let’s just talk about the positive effects. So this information can do a lot in today’s world.
