2011 Build Season Update: Week 6 Activities

Though most construction is complete, the team continues to optimize the robot’s operation. Most of this work falls on the shoulders of our programming team: Their work this week included:

      • Completing the logic for the solenoids that controls that open and close the robot’s “claw.”
      • Wiring the line sensors that control the robot during its autonomous mode.
      • Troubleshooting drive issues, i.e., fixing a damaged motor controller.
      • Developing programming logic for the mini-bot deployment.

Our competition drive team started practicing their robot moves.
