2012 Build Season Update: Week 7 Activities

Crunch time! During week 7 our sub-teams had to integrate their work. We finished construction of ball capture and pickup system, the ball accelerator, and the shooter. Students assembled them onto the chassis/drive train. The electrical team completed wiring controls and sensors. And the programming team optimized the code that controls the robot.

Last minute tasks include finishing the bridge arm and programming the shooter.

The stop build date is Tuesday, February 21. We have to “bag and tag” our robot and can’t touch it until we open the bag at the regional competition. As we built two robots this year, the team will continue to prepare for the competition by using the second obot to perfect our driving skills and game strategy.
