"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Robot Steering Calibrator Stand

Robotic Calibration Systems (RCS) is a multidisciplinary team of engineering students comprised of two electrical engineers, one computer engineer, and three mechanical engineers.The team was assigned the task of designing and building two service test stands for Continental Automotive Systems (CAS), a world-wide leader in innovative technologies for vehicle safety applications. The stands will be used to calibrate the Sprint 3 Programmable Steering Machine, which is manufactured by Heitz Automotive. The Steering Machine used by CAS automates testing applications pertaining to vehicle rollover testing.Currently, Continental has no way to test the calibration and/or service its Steering Machines after installation in a vehicle. The RCS test stands would provide a means and a tool for performing static, functional and dynamic maneuver testing to make sure the Steering Machines are calibrated properly and operating correctly. Continental would use the calibrated machine to assist in the quality assurance and development of its electronic safety systems.
