Today was a very successful day; it looks like a good start to the K-Botics weekend.
In the controls group we started by learning about programming “classes”, a type of program. We also learned common C++ syntax and basic programming terms and skills. Some programmers started mapping the Xbox and Logitech controllers so they can be used with the Robot. The electrical group rewired the radio and Victors/Talons. Finally, one developer computer is finished and ready to go; the rest are on their way.
The mechanical group spent the time cutting spacers……and bending Lexan. Many of us continued building a practice field-goal for the top of the pyramid. It is well on the way, and some prototypes for shooting should be ready by tomorrow for testing. Also, the feeder system and targets are ready to go.Please remember to sign in and out of every meeting in order to account for your hours. If you have not signed up for the fingerprint scanner, talk to a mentor about it during your next meeting. Thanks to everyone for cleaning up! It is important to keep our workspace safe.
