Tasks This Meeting: 

Build the driving challenge field

Work on a more exact way of measuring turns

Build a baton pusher for the front of the robot

Reflections For This Meeting: 

The exact turning and baton pusher are going to be very helpful during the game.

This meeting we did several things.

- We built the driving challenge field and tested the White Rabbit on it - it worked OK, nut we need to make it more stable.

- We decided to put a baton bulldozer blade on the front of Alice so she can push batons into our one point goal. Of course we only need to do that when we're stanced down.

- We added the gyro sensor for turns, so we started programming that into the autonomous.

We built the White Rabbit (our speed bot) for the driving challenge. And then built the challenge to make sure it worked.

Al built the new baton pusher in CAD first.

Chris building a baton roller for the hand, which should speed up the dump and allow us to go through all of the batons looking for the magnetic one.

Alice and the speed bot, both are ready for the driving challenge.

We're wotking on the new autonomous turning program using the Gyroscope sensor

Bending the baton pusher for the front of the robot.

Placing the baton pusher on the front of the robot.
