We are in the last few weeks of robot building. Our plan is to finish the robot in the next few days. Then we will have a week or so to test drive the robot around. This period of time is meant to break anything that may break during the main competition, so we can fix it and make it better.
The robot is almost complete, and we are using a elevator with an arm on it to complete tasks in game. Overall the robot seems pretty solid and shouldn’t present any problems.
The last main things that need done are the wiring up of the motors to the main control unit, and the programming of the robot. It may take some more work than usual to get the robot programmed, because we are using a different type of speed controller this year. There is still a lot of work to do, but we are all looking forward to being done, and competing.
