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 configured the arm switch on the transmitter and verified that all four motors functioned correctly upon arming before proceeding with the flight test. However, during the test, the arming operation proved to be unstable, and an error message indicating a drop in power supply voltage was displayed. Upon reconfiguring the settings, we discovered an issue with the electrical circuitry. It was identified that the logic and propulsion systems were integrated, potentially causing current instability. This might have been the root cause of the problem. When we conducted a test flight, the drone seemed to exhibit weak thrust. Consequently, we switched the battery to a 3-cell LiPo battery. Additionally, upon reviewing the logs, we found issues with altitude estimation. We plan to recalibrate the system before the next class session.

    This week, we checked the operation of the rudder, elevator, and aileron. The rudder and elevator were operated by pulling both rudder and elevator with the embedded servo horns. The elevator has a T-shaped tail fin, so we set a relay point at the base of the vertical tail fin to move the thread. For the aileron, we attached a servo horn inside the aileron, connected it to the wing midsection with piano wire, and pulled both ailerons from the midsection to achieve aileron movement.

    On 26 June, the seventh workday, we added diagonal elements to the upper and lower wings to increase their rigidity. We also started setting washi paper to the lower wings. Unlike the rudder and elevator, these wings were not flat, so we struggled to stick the washi without sagging. We also completed the ailerons, which we had started to make last week. The ailerons will be connected to the main wing with tape in the next week. Also, as soon as the upper wing washi is finished, the upper and lower wings will be connected and the central axis of the fuselage will be fixed.

    This is the Flying Robot Profect Team B, and we would like to share this week's progress.
    Today, we first cut carbon pipes with a saw and continued with assembling the main wing with the joint parts made by the 3D printer: we marked where the ribs are attached to the pipes and temporarily fixed the ribs using masking tape. Using bamboo, we also made the framework of the tail wing. In the process, we were worried about the distortion in the rib in the main wing to which the tail wing will be connected with a carbon pipe. However, it was found that it is cleared when the carbon pipe is attached to the rib, securing its shape.
    Next time, we are going to keep assembling the tail wing and start gluing the frameworks for the main wing and the tail wing.

    This week, we made the servo motor mounting parts, joined the left and right main wings, and fully planked the ailerons. The main wing joints designed last week were cut out and glued so that the dihedral angle is 5 degrees. The servo motor mounts are made of 2mm MDF. The size was designed to fit between the front and rear mounts of the main wings so that the mounts are held in place without gluing to the fuselage. The ailerons are made of 1mm styrene board and fully planked.
