PRAlpha Robotics presents iBonni, a multi‐functional robot platform which will be capable of manipulating objects and allows future add‐ons and user‐definable functionalities. For home secure usage, house owners can remotely access robot from anywhere via internet and drive it to monitor their house through night vision camera. Using the powerful built‐in sensor system, our robot can take the roles of smoke detector, flood detector, temperature detector, etc and generate alert in case of emergency. Besides security applications, our robot is also able to operate other home devices via IR transmission as a universal remote controller which can be accessed by house owners through network. Therefore, our product can achieve various functionalities. For instance, with speaker and MIC on robot, house owner can even talk and play with their pet.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
