CHECKLIST: REPORT FORMATTING AND SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS Names: __________________________________________________________________

� Report sections, headers, and sub-headers to be exactly as instructed � Main headers uppercase and bold, Sub-headers lowercase and not bold � 1 inch margins all around � 12 pt font size, Times New Roman font type � Single space all � Put 1 blank line before and after headers � Figures and tables, along with their labels, to be center-justified and positioned “in-line with text.” Always

include labels (numbers and captions) for all figures and tables; For example: Figure 1. Robot Axes and Table 1. Reliability Results

� Figure and table label lines must be on same page as that figure or table � There must not be any additional whitespace in the report � All sections and sub-sections MUST have some verbiage (at least a single sentence) in addition to any

bulleted list, figure, or table. That is, you can’t have a section that has only a bulleted list; it must have some paragraph also, if only a single sentence.

� Include page numbers at bottom center of page; only a number, nothing more � Include appropriate photos, presented throughout the report as appropriate � All figures and tables MUST be referenced and discussed in the body of the report, and must be

referenced BEFORE the figure/table is located in report

� All photos must be in color � Figure and table sizes must be APPROPRIATE (no excessively large or small images; this will be evaluated

in scoring)

� NO FLUFF in report; get to the point and be clear and concise. I am your audience; speak to me as if I understand robotics in general and that you are writing a report to/for me; i.e., do not give a general introduction of robotics since the beginning of time, etc.

� Spelling, grammar, punctuation, word choice, and sentence structure will be graded; proofread! � Print only on one side, not both sides of the paper � Staple only a single staple, at top left corner � Do not include a report folder of any kind � All team members must contribute to report, lab, and video

You will submit the following 6 items for each lab project:

1. This sheet, with each checklist box “checked” by you after your own review 2. Hard-copy of report 3. E-copy of report, in PDF. Filename to be “last names of all members_report”. E.g.,

Gerlick Kai Piper Ethan_report 4. E-copy of video, in Windows Media Player. Filename to be “last names of all members_video”. E.g.,

Gerlick Kai Piper Ethan _video 5. Publish video on YouTube, show during submission of report 6. Peer evaluations, on the given evaluation form, unfolded

REQUIRED REPORT CONTENT **** the bullets below are NOT used here to indicate how you should use bullets in your report. Use bullets in your report how you wish, but appropriately (which means sparingly and only when really needed. Do not use bullets when paragraphs are more appropriate. This will be evaluated in your score) Cover Sheet Include the following:

• Team name • Course name • Submission date • School • Submitted to Dr. XXXXX (your instructor’s name) • Document name (either “Robix Robot Lab Report” or “Industrial Robot Lab Report”) • Overall project photo (in color) • Member names


Starts on a new page after cover sheet Must include the following sections and section headers:

Background (discuss the “problem” and the “need” for your project solution) Goal (state what a solution is to this problem will do; but don’t discuss your actual solution; just what

the end goal of it will be… what will happen) Design (explain your solution; state how it works) Results (state how your solution worked; state numbers and facts only) Conclusions (interpret your factual results above: was it a success or not)

Each section above must have the header and include 3-5 sentences each; no more or less Abstract should be approximately 500 words total


Starts on a new page after the Abstract Must have the header (“TABLE OF CONTENTS”) Section names to be left-justified, numbers to be right-justified, with connecting dots between Double spaced


Starts on a new page after the Table of Contents Include the following sub-sections, with more detail than what was presented in the Abstract:

Project Background (what is the problem that needs a solution, who are the stakeholders) Solution Need (why is a solution needed and what benefit will the solution provide; note that this does NOT include ANY discussion of your actual solution design) Goal (what is the goal for your project; that is, what exactly will a solution do. This must be abstract,

with no mention of your actual solution) PROJECT DESIGN AND DETAILS

Describe your robot with the following sub-sections: Design Introduction (general description of your robot, all system components, and overall system operation… i.e., describe generally what is being done, how, etc., full details will be later.) Robot Specifications

o Type of robot o Axes and degrees of freedom o Drives

o Controls/feedback Inputs and Outputs

o Inputs: list and discuss the inputs you have in detail (sensors, buttons, etc.); this is NOT how they work in your project, just a discussion of the sensors/pneumatics in general that you are using)

o Outputs: similarly, list and discuss the outputs you have (pneumatics, motors, lights, etc.)

How the Robot Works o Walk reader through the process of how the robot works (what it does), from beginning

to end o Discuss how your inputs and outputs (e.g., sensors, pneumatics, motors, lights) are

used; include the logic for each as utilized in your code o Discuss all active/passive compliance

Code (only discussion here as instructed below; put the full code in appendix) o Introduce your code (e.g., how done… on teach pendent or computer? How many lines

of code? What’s the major architecture here… main routine and sub routines/labels?) o Give (in a figure) a flowchart of your code o Give (in a numbered list) a pseudocode of your code o Discuss your code (the details in the sequence of each major step and logic process)

Schematic (provide a professional looking schematic figure of your electrical and pneumatic system; research how to do this online)


Include the following sections: General Results (discuss in general the results of how your robot met the overall project goal. This is just facts here… what happened) Reliability (FIRST define what reliability means to this project, THEN present your testing process, and THEN present results) Accuracy (FIRST define what accuracy means to this project, THEN present your testing process, and THEN present results)

CONCLUSIONS Include a discussion on each of the following below, in this order. Each of the 4 bullets below to be a single separate paragraph (no deviation here; and DO NOT bullet your report here, use 4 paragraphs).

• Discuss your results and give your interpretations of what they mean… was your solution a success or not, etc. (your Results section above was just the undisputed facts, this Conclusion section is YOUR INTERPRETATION of those facts)

• Discuss what went right and wrong and explain any problems • Discuss what you would do differently if you did the project again • Give insights of what you learned


Include your code, nicely formatted. Note: The length of each section above must be “balanced.” That is, use appropriate length for each section, with the lengths of each relative to each other (one section should not be very large and detailed while another is small and sparse of detail… be consistent and get on the same page with each other as you write the report). This will be considered in scoring.


(free for you to copy/paste for your report) Use these exact headers and sub-headers in your report, in this order, formatted as shown. NO DEVIATIONS! Place one blank line before and after all headers and sub-headers; no more ABSTRACT Background Goal Design Results Conclusions TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION Project Background Solution Need Goal PROJECT DESIGN AND DETAILS Design Introduction Robot Specifications Inputs and Outputs How the Robot Works Code Schematic RESULTS General Results Reliability Accuracy CONCLUSIONS (need exactly 4 paragraphs here; content per instruction) APPENDIX


You are required to create a video of your lab projects and submit it alongside your lab report. These videos not only show your professors your hard work for grading purposes, but we also ask you to publish them to YouTube so other students can see examples of what has been done with the resources in the lab. General Tips

Here are some helpful tips on creating your videos.

• Create your video in MP4 format. All of the major software packages allow you to export your final video as MP4, and we know MP4 is well supported by YouTube and Windows Media Player (which is what is used to grade your project).

• Keep your video short. Don’t include multiple (more than 2) full runs of your program. 2-3 minutes is

usually plenty for Robix projects, 5-6 minutes for industrial.

• High quality video and audio. The library has cameras and tripods available for checkout. You pay for this as part of your tech fee – use what you paid for! See https://www.ewu.edu/library/resources/students/checkout-tech for more information.

• Check for typos in text overlays. Don’t spell your (or your professor’s) name wrong.

• Include your name in the video. You can share the link to your video as part of your portfolio for future

job or grad school applications – make sure your viewers know who gets credit for the work.

• Recommended: don’t use copyrighted music or video clips in your video. Note: the following does not constitute legal advice. Using copyrighted materials is subject to a number of laws and regulations, which vary from country to country. If YouTube detects copyrighted material in an uploaded video, you’ll see a copyright notice in our channel manager. In some cases, your video will be blocked in one or more countries. In other cases, ads may appear over your video. You should read the YouTube provided pages “YouTube Copyright Center” and “Fair use – YouTube” in order to learn more about using copyrighted materials in your videos. If you really want background music in your videos, we recommend using the YouTube Audio Library, or any other source of music that is freely distributable.

Selection criteria for the EWU Robotics YouTube channel

We are now also selecting exemplary videos to publish directly on the EWU Robotics YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClQQQ1ic10nmnx1FYmbw2nA) after the quarter is over. These videos are selected as representations of the best projects and videos created throughout the years of teaching MENG 385. Videos published to the EWU Robotics channel are selected independently of grading criteria – in other words, projects with a high grade might not have their videos published on the channel. Whether or not your video is published on the EWU Robotics channel has no effect on your project or course grade.

• High quality video and audio. These videos represent the best work of the university’s students, and

serve as role models for future course sections. Avoid making a video that is shaky or blurry.

• Hook the viewer in the first 30 seconds. It should be really obvious to the viewer in the first 20-30 seconds what your project is about. This can be a title screen, or video of your robot’s core functionality.

• Be original. If your project is a remake of a project done in a previous quarter, it’s probably not going to make the cut.

• Required: don’t use copyrighted music or video clips in your video. If we upload your video and it receives a copyright claim, we’ll remove it from our channel.

• The video must upload to YouTube without needing to be converted. We won’t convert your video from

another format – we need to be able to upload it to YouTube as-is.

• No depiction of alcohol, drugs, or other controlled substances that violate a university policy. Even if your vodka bottle is filled only with water.

• We won’t edit your video in any way. We’ll give it a standardized title and tags, but that’s it. If your video

would need editing to meet any of the above criteria, we won’t upload it. These videos demonstrate your effort, not ours.
