2014 Build Season Update: Week 4 Activities

In week four, we will mount the pick-up system and finish wiring the robot. Then we will have two weeks to optimize the autonomous program and for the drive team to practice.
Students continued robot design and build tasks.

The mechanical team has just about completed the robot construction. Only task left is to mount our ball pick up system onto the drive train.

The electronics/programming team:

      • Created a wiring diagram
      • Wired the entire robot. This includes nine motors and their associated controllers and the air compressor.
      • created a systems document that detailed electrical and  programming needs.

The media team filmed a video promoting the team that we will use as part of our Chairman’s Award application

In week five, we hope to complete our electrical and programming integration and then start practicing for competition
