Current collector

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

The current collector Figure 8.10 is a flexible shaft mounted on top of a Duckiebot. Its purpose is to make contact with the charging rails.

Charging rail

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A charging rail is a brass tube mounted over a Duckietown with the help of high voltage poles (Section 1.5 - High voltage pole).

High voltage pole

Modified 2018-08-29 by Julien Kindle

The purpose of the high voltage pole is to mount the charging rails over the street.

Insulator

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

The insulator connects the charging rails to a overhanging structure.

Charging rail tiles

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

Charging rail tiles are tiles with charging rails. Duckiebots can charge in both directions. Each charging rail tile has $8$ brass rails. See Figure 1.10.

Charging module

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A charging module describes the combination of a charging rail and all connected straights and curves up to the next intersection. See Figure 1.10.

Charger

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A charger describes one single lane of a charging module. See Figure 1.10.

Maintenance Intersection

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

The maintenance intersection is a 3-way intersection. A direction on the maintenance intersection leads either to a charging intersection (in case of module 2) or to a subset of chargers (in case of Module 1). See Figure 1.12

Charger Intersection

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A charger intersection is a 3-way intersection where the charger entrances and exits of seperate chargers meet. See Figure 1.12

Charging Manager

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A charging manager is basically a watchtower with a traffic light. Its task is to tell Duckiebots to which charger they should drive in. The charging manager must be allocated on the maintenance intersection. See Figure 1.12

Doorkeeper

Modified 4 days ago by Tomasz Z

A doorkeeper is a watchtower that detects which charger a Duckiebot entered or exited. It must be allocated on the charging intersection. See Figure 1.12

Below you can find the definitions of maintenance intersection and charger intersections. You can also see also an example of the placement of charging manager and doorkeepers. See Figure 1.12
