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.
