Project-Based Learning プロジェクト ベースト ラーニング

What is PBL?

Project-Based Learning (PBL)

Project-based learning is offered in the “Flying Robot Project”, a part of “Creative Engineering Projects”. Junior and senior undergraduate students, as well as graduate students are welcome to join the project. An important goal of the project is to offer a chance to students to put in practice the knowledge they have gained in lectures to build and test their own aircraft. Following a PDCA (plan-do-check-act) cycle, the students analyze and solve an assignment, and validate their answer. During the aircraft building and flight test phases, the students work in teams, where discussions about the progress of each task helps the students develop their leadership, management and organizational skills.

PBLとは

プロジェクト・ベースト・ラーニング(PBL)

「創造的ものづくりプロジェクト」・「創造性工学プロジェクト」で開講している「飛行ロボットプロジェクト」においてプロジェクト・ベースト・ラーニングを実施します。

このプロジェクトでは、大学3年生以上大学院生を対象として、講義などで培った知識を、飛行ロボットの製作と飛行試験を通じて実践的に身につけることを目指します。その中では、与えられた課題を分析して解を見つけ、それを検証するというPDCAサイクルの体験をします。製作と飛行試験はチーム単位で実施するために、プロジェクト進行におけるディスカッションを必要とし、リーダーシップやマネージメント、役割分担の能力を高めることにつなげて行きます。

    We change its electronic central control system (ECCS) with a new one. As changing its ECCS, we simplified and rebuilt its electronic components because of its complex wiring and was difficult to do maintenance. As a result of changing its ECCS, the four motors worked properly, but its calibration wasn’t good, so we couldn’t fly this drone.

    We built the structure of the drone, and its electric components. However, one of its motors did not work properly, so we couldn’t fly our drone. Through looking at our drone, we found that its flying control system had somewhat malfunctioned. In next week, we will replace its flying control system with a new one to have four motors working properly.

    Hello, this is Yokomura of Group B. Our group is working on the production aiming for a stylish drone with robot hands. Each part of the body was completed in the last time, and this time we connected the electronic parts such as the motor and the speed controller. I was mainly engaged in the production of the body. At first, I planned to produce most of the aircraft with a 3D printer. Plastic is stronger than wood, so you can make a more sophisticated body. It should have proceeded smoothly, but the base made with a 3D printer was heaver as I expected, replaced by a lighter plywood. The strength will be slightly weakened, but because there is a plastic cover on it, it does not seem to be a problem. We also proceeded with the production of motors and foundations at the same time. I did not get used to it because I did not solder for a long time, but we managed to finish it. This completes the connection between the motor and the speed controller, the battery and the connection terminal, and the remained task is the connection between the battery and the motor. Next time I will combine everything and I will check the operation of the motor. By the way, although it is about the robot hand, I am not currently producing it, because the design and the creation of the electric circuit were not made in time, and we were concentrating on making the aircraft. Although it will become a drone with no change in this way, we will continue to work towards the drones being able to stably fly.

    This month, we have brought our flight model airplane to completion. This airplane was designed to be folded in a can and fly by manned operation. We processed it efficiently based on experience of our first type model. As a result, our flight model succeeded in folding in a can. However, it did not fly stable. We analyzed structures of the airplane and concluded that the lack of the vertical tail wing volume is responsible for its unstable flight. Therefore, we remodeled the vertical tail wing and did a second flight test. The result of second flight test was satisfactory. It flew stable aside from non-effectiveness effect of the rudder. From this result, we decided to redesign our flight model to one which can fly more stable. Though we have made some progress in this month, there are still some challenges regarding autopilot. From now on, we are going to tackle on those challenges more seriously.

    Our team bought the thick Balsa wood from Tokyu Hands. We made the wings by laser. We also made the joints which connect the wings and the main axis.
