The first week of build season is behind us. Today we were at work again, we learned about PWM crimp heads in order to wire the motor controller…We also prototyped a shooter and tested it out outside. (This may or may not be part of the shooter prototype!)We’re not ready to divulge our plans yet, but we certainly had fun conducting tests!
We worked on CADing the pyramids……and we have got chains ready to stop the frisbees when they fly.
Today we got the code to download to the cRIO. With many new programmers in our controls group, we’re learning lots every day.During down time, there was a little bit of robot driving going on in the hallway.It takes a lot of practice to be good at navigating obstacles.The mechanical design of our robot is coming along. We have a CAD office set up where it is nice and quiet.We’re looking forward to week 2. Thanks to the parents for feeding us all week! Thanks to the mentors for the many hours you are spending with us.
