Finish wiring (to have robot ready for the Auburn Community Festival).

Reflections For This Meeting: 

Wiring is a job that must be done, that doesn't mean I have to enjoy doing it.

 

With the robot done we now need to do the long and gruesome part of wiring. We decided to stack the motor controllers in a rather clever way under the robot. Almost in the robots belly.

Slowly more and more wires get put in as more and more zip-ties get used.

We decided to build a small dual servo pincher to grab candy so that we can present better at the fair we will be going to. On the main arm we placed holes all down the elbow so that the wires will be held tightly in place.

The wires are secure!

With all the wires ready to be plugged in we have the problem of knowing which is which.

Luckily we have a labeler so that our wires can be named so the crossing of wires is rather hard.

All ready for the fair. Well not quite but in a few more hours the entire thing should be done.
