8.3 Justification

Design No. Objective Score giving Justification
1 Safety 7 Since it is used for walking mechanism and it is designed for locomotion on rough terrain it requires control of leg actuators to maintain balance.
Not damage the inner contents 8 As the moment of the linkage will be fixed, there is almost no pressure applied. So, the inner contents do not get damaged.
User-friendly 5 As the model works on a Single go
Smooth working and should not be noisy 7 On comparing with design 3, it uses DC motors but design 1 uses a servo motor. So it works smoothly and makes less noise.
2 Safety 7 Six-legged bot exhibits hexapedal motion so it has control over stability and motion. So, bot can balance and move.
Not damage the inner contents 8 As all parts are fixed so it does not damage inner parts.
User-friendly 5 As we are controlling it via mobile application it is easy to use.
Smooth working and should not be noisy 8 We have used servo motor it makes less noise compared to Datum and works smoothly.
3 Safety Datum
Not damage the inner contents Datum
User friendly Datum
Smooth working and should not be noisy Datum
4 Safety 7 Hexapod bot has greater stability due to its flexibility. So, it can move on any terrain.
Not damage the inner contents -8 As all parts fixed so it does not damage inner parts
User-friendly -5 Compared to datum it is more complex to handle.
Smooth working and should not be noisy -4 As more energy is consumed due to its complex design and controls. Also it uses DC motor so it is noisy.
