Reflections For This Meeting: 

Lots to do, not enough time...

Today we have a bunch of little projects to achieve, but all of them are important. Coach started us out with figuring out what our priorities were, and we wrote them onto the white board and designated which team member should work on which project. Then, we  commensed to get to work. We have a good team that each can work on their own or together and I am confidant we will achieve much today.

The list of everything to be done this meeting.

Chris mounting the servo on the side of the hand to control the door opening and closing.

Chris working on attaching the servo for the door on the hand.

Al working on the right wheel base in CAD, and Gavin soldering the prototype board.

Chris playing around with some new ideas for attaching touch sensors, thinking about where they could be attached and how it would work.

Karl working on one of the sensors, and figuring out the best option for wiring it.

Gavin soldering the new prototype board, attaching wires for the potentiometers to be connected to.

Chris taking the number plates off the sides so he can have more room to work.  Al working on the CAD for the wheel base.

Al helping Gavin with the soldering of the new prototype board, doing our best to make it as perfect as possible.

Al holding the wires across the prototype board while Gavin solders them in place.

Chris mounting the touch sensor on the back of the robot.

Just one of the many ideas for how and where to put a touch sensor on the back of the robot.

Karl using the calipers to measure spacing for attaching the power switch to the robot.

The potentiometer attached to the robot to measure the elbow movement.

Karl attaching the other potentiometer to measure the arm's position.

Karl and Chris finishing attaching the sensors and tightening everything into place.
