We have been keeping busy these last couple days. All the drive train parts have been sent out to our sponsor CK Tool. Parts for our shooter and Frisbee pickup system have been sent off to our sheet metal sponsor, Advanced Component Technology, Inc.
In the shop we have been working on our climbing mechanism and the robot frame. Most of the parts we need to assemble the robot are on order and should be arriving in the next week.
Programmers have been working on two main tasks. Our experienced programmers are working on implementing consistent velocity and rotation control on the robot. This will allow us to have both more consistent, controlled, and faster tele-operated driving along with a more consistent and effective autonomous period. The less experienced programmers have been learning how to use the sensors we will be putting on the robot.
