With competition quickly approaching, we had to get up to speed with our driving skills. One of the reasons we decided on building a practice robot this year was to enable the team’s drivers to get additional practice between events (since we can’t touch the competition bot between events).
We’re still chugging away at getting the prototype climber built. Initial testing showed promise, but the geometry needs to be tweaked a little. The elevator and intake team has also finished mounting the elevator on our test chassis and will be installing the intake in the coming days. Once that’s done and tested, we’re going to prep material for manufacture. This year, we’re going to be a little more organized and prepare a “cut-list” of pieces so that multiple people can work on fabrication.
