ConclusionIn conclusion, we discovered through running the quality part of the model with many different test subjects, that having a good knowledge of the temperature of an area, and having that readily available to the user, greatly increases the success rate of the robot. By simplifying the problem and applying it to the virtual coordinate grid, we were able to isolate this variable in a way that would be totally impossible if we had built a real robot. Through this discovery, we are able to conclude that haptic technology would greatly improve the success rate of a robot used in this type of dangerous situation. We also discovered, by running the speed part of the model, that haptic technology also greatly increases the speed at which the robot can locate the target successfully. This speed can have a big impact in this field. Robots used in dangerous situations are usually under a time constraint that makes having a faster robot operator combination important. The increased speed comes from the faster response time of a person’s sense of touch as opposed to the response time of human sight. In the speed model, we were once again able to isolate the speed variable in a way that we would never be able to do in a real-world experiment.
