Our prototyping is slowly dying down as we prepare to build our competition robot. Our kitbot had been fully equipped and is now being tweaked to figure out all the small details.
We are still brainstorming on the best way to take a 10-point climb. Some of our ideas include a spring powered arm, a pneumatic arm, or a two-part arm with a rubber connecter to allow our slightly fast driver to ram into the pyramid without bending the shaft.
The coders tested their autonomous successfully in the simulator, which is a huge improvement to past years when autonomous was more of a last minute thing.
Our robot is really starting to come together! We’ve even designed the bumpers.
