Aside from this exciting news, things are still coming along nicely at the shop.  We have attached our elevator, and have now been testing our code with the container grabber carriage assembled.  We’ve also been busy tweaking various minor, initial issues in our design, including some belt tensioning problems.   We are also still making progress on our second robot, but right now the focus on that robot is still simply on assembling the drive train.  With one day left at the shop until Week 0 we still have lots of work to do, but the robot is definitely coming along!
