AGH Solar Boat Team

AGH, Cracow

For many years AGH Solar Boat Team has focused on the promotion and development of water electromobility both in Poland and worldwide. After numerous successes of our first zero-emission electric race boat, Baśka, it is time to swim into new waters. The design of the autonomous boat is designed to be a universal floating platform, which, thanks to its interchangeable modules, will be able to carry out such tasks as locating sources of pollution, bottom mapping or rescue operations in difficult conditions. The construction is based on a hull made of composite materials. During the designing process we used our experience gained with sports boats, thanks to which the hull is fast, agile and durable. Efficient navigation is possible thanks to fusion of data from GPS system, acceleration sensors and stereo cameras. Vision systems based on artificial intelligence allow to determine the position and distance from possible obstacles and then plan the course to reach the destination. The system is complemented by a self-contained flying unit giving the possibility of observation from the air.

Pneumobil V4

Science Club Hydro + deals with the construction of a compressed air vehicle for the international competition of pneumatic vehicles in Eger, Hungary. Our task is to build a prototype pneumatic vehicle, starting from an idea and design to building it. At the competition, we compete, among others, in the competition for the fastest vehicle or the vehicle with the greatest range. About fifty teams from technical universities from all over Europe always come to the competition, which is organized by one of the largest pneumatic companies in the world. Building a good vehicle takes a lot of work, effort and time, so often the same vehicle is refined over many years before we decide to build a new one. Our research club has already constructed three pneumatic vehicles. Since last year, we have been working on a new, even more innovative vehicle with which we want to compete in May 2021.

Wykorzystanie grzybów owadobójczych jako alternatywy dla chemicznych środków ochrony roślin

Currently used pesticides have a fairly broad spectrum of activity and are generally harmful to the environment. Biopesticides based on insecticidal fungi, which are still very few on the market, are species-specific, which may prevent the killing of organisms of ecological importance.
It is also worth paying attention to the fact that along with climate changes, farming becomes an increasing challenge, so the protection of crops is conducive to lowering the costs of cultivation and, consequently, a potential inhibition of the increase in food prices.
Why the project should win: We are a motivated circle to get results and develop our ideas, but we lack the equipment to carry out some laboratory procedures.

Kosmiczne eksperymenty AGH Space Systems – mikrograwitacja i rozwiązania przemysłu 4.0 dzięki podsystemom badawczym integrowalnym z rakietą, gondolą balonu stratosferycznego oraz łazikiem planetarnym

AGH Space Systems space experiments – microgravity and industry 4.0 solutions thanks to research subsystems integrated with a rocket, a stratospheric balloon gondola and a planetary rover
Project description: AGH Space Systems has been developing space technologies for years, such as planetary rovers, sounding rockets and gondolas of stratospheric balloons. The successes achieved by the Circle enable our members to acquire both competences related directly to the created technologies and soft ones developed during numerous presentations.
However, the goal of our Club is not only to participate in international competitions or develop the skills of young engineers and scientists, but above all to contribute to the development of science and space engineering. For this reason, this year we decided to put special emphasis on the development of research subsystems adapted to integration with a rocket, rover and nacelle of stratospheric balloons. They will allow for conducting innovative scientific experiments, the results of which will be presented at international conferences. However, the very process of their creation will allow for the development and testing of technical solutions that can be developed and used not only in space engineering, but also in geology, agriculture and industry 4.0, affecting the implementation of the sustainable development goals. The presented project covers the development of 3 research subsystems, which will be integrated with the stratospheric balloon gondola, rocket and rover, and will allow for carrying out innovative experiments in the field of e.g. biology, geology, meteorology, chemistry and physics.

Projekt Walle

The Walle project is a project to build an autonomous robot that cleans green and urban areas. The main goal is to care for the sustainable development of our world, where the dominant industry (and not only) contributes to a large amount of rubbish in the streets, parks, forests …
A mobile robot moving on tracks will autonomously explore the area in search of garbage (plastic bottles, aluminum cans, crushed paper, plastic bags, etc.). Detection of these objects will be possible thanks to a vision system based on two cameras. It will be possible to implement an intelligent system for optimal and better operation. The robot will collect garbage to the “belly”, as did Wall-e from the Pixar movie, to which the robot will be structurally as similar (media). We do not rule out adding any additional functionalities of the robot from the movie.
It is worth noting that the project will be mainly implemented by me (Jan Brzyk), because it is my engineering thesis, and it will be a master’s thesis. In the team representing the NewTech AGH research group, I will find substantive, constructional and marketing support.
Why the project should win: My project should win because promoting the winning work will signal the problem of ubiquitous rubbish in the world. The prize money grant will be used to develop Project Walle, a further step towards a better, cleaner, more stable future for all of us.

Tor pomiarowy do usprawnienia stosowanych środków ochrony przed COVID19 dla personelu medycznego opartych o maski Subea Easy Breath

Measuring track to improve the applied means of protection against COVID19 for medical personnel based on Subea Easy Breath masks
Project description: Our project is a measuring stand for testing prototypes of direct protection equipment for medical personnel.
As part of the “Mask dla Medyka” campaign, we donated over 350 Subea Easy Breath snorkeling masks to hospitals in Krakow, transformed into improvised means of protection against COVID19 and other infectious diseases for medical personnel using 3D printing technology. Due to the next wave of infections, we want to develop a new version of the mask that will allow even greater comfort of use.
Improving the measurement path will allow you to better compare the effectiveness of different prototypes made in 3D printing. The biggest advantage of the project is the speed with which we are able to test new iterations. Anyone with access to a 3D printer can produce a ready solution.
Detailed examination of the gases flowing through the masks allows us to determine which design solutions ensure the greatest comfort of use. This is important because the concentration of carbon dioxide in the masks is higher than the environment and properly designed valves are able to lower it.
So far, one of our measurable successes has been the improvement of the masks used in action by tripling the CO2 retention to levels that allow long-term and safe operation. In addition, we have improved the valve production technology, thanks to which we will be able to produce several thousand of them a day. Improving the measuring path will allow us to further develop this technology.
Once the pandemic situation has stabilized, our measurement track can be easily used to evaluate changes in effort during physical activity. Oxygen consumption and the concentration of exhaled CO2 correlate with its intensity and duration.

Projekt i budowa autonomicznego bezzałogowego systemu powietrznego na potrzeby ratownictwa medycznego

The aim of the project is to build an autonomous flying system that supports medical services in operations
in sparsely populated and hard-to-reach areas. The main idea behind the project is the use of innovative solutions in the field of autonomous aviation to build a reconnaissance system, which will also be able to establish its own communication channel in the area without GSM network coverage.
A combination of autonomous aviation systems with modern telecommunications technologies and systems artificial intelligence guarantees the interest of investors from the high technology industry. In addition to improving the effectiveness of medical services in sparsely populated areas,
the system can also prove invaluable in times of natural disasters – allowing for evaluation
before the flood, fire or earthquake hit the spot there are paramedics – it will enable them to recognize the area earlier and even make an attempt to contact with the injured persons staying in a place cut off from telephone communication.
Why the project should win: Ladies and Gentlemen, please imagine that you are in the mountains, on a lake or any other hard-to-reach area.
You are injured, have an accident, forgot your medicine or have been attacked by a wild animal. Creating a system that would allow the necessary medicine to reach you quickly can be what will save your life. A paramedic will most likely not reach you quickly, and an unmanned, autonomous drone could do it in a few minutes, establishing radio-video contact with the paramedic, creating a medicine or an antidote to a substance with which you had contact in the wild. Our system can save lives, or at least create a research and development base for such solutions. That is why our project should win.
