Paper Abstract

75% to 80% of the mobile robot cost is determined by robots design, and to a large extent the efficiency of the production of robots and their performance are also determined. Quantitative evaluation of the virtual design cycle has been plagued robot designers. In this paper, CBD technique is used to design the mobile robots. Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) is used to compare quantitatively the design cycle between virtual design and traditional design. By way of comparison between the virtual design and traditional design used in the design process for the mobile robots, virtual design cycle was shortened the design cycle by more than 40 percent. And at the circumstances of same design cycle, the completion probability of using virtual design is much higher than the designs of using traditional design.
