Reflections For This Meeting: 

Thank goodness for 1/2 days at school the week before our first Qualifier

Today Gavin worked on programming the wrist, the arm, and the stance as well as working on limits for the each on of the joints on the robot.  Karl worked on rebuilding the wrist with a new smaller arm that could support the hand with all the tubes being held.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

The protective box was almost impossible to make.

The hand will probably work.


 Al worked on build the robot in CAD and the hand.  Karl worked on the hand and the belts for holding the tubes.  Chris and Gavin worked on wiring, and Gavin worked on the prototype board and protective box.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

The season is too short.

The prototype board is amazing.

Today Gavin worked on the prototype board for controling the POT and the magnetic sensor.  Karl and Al worked on bending and cutting the plastic for the hand and wrist.  It looks like the prototype board is going to be extreme helpful on the movement of the stance and arm.

Reflections For This Meeting: 

Our arm is going to be insanely hard to control

Stance works is going to be very helpful for moving the robot on the terrain

 Today we worked on cutting, painting and assembling the field.  We then worked on designing the basic parts of our robot and each on of the module piece that we are going to use.  The team talked about the controling of the arm and stanceworks and its importance on navigating over and around the terrain.


Reflections For This Meeting: 

We need to create a better system for lifting up balls to the shooter mechanism.

Measure and cut walls and barriers.
