Getting Ready for Competition

Posted by Lori Dale On March 5, 2019 Comments Off on Getting Ready for Competition

This week the team wired up the testbot chassis to test out our floor pick up mechanism. It will be part of our 30 lbs. that we can add to our robot at competition. We hope to pick up some of the hatch panels that other teams drop on the field.

Above a picture of the mechanism. Below, see a short video of the mechanism in action.

We are also working on an upgrade to our robot cart. It is starting to look a little too “Well loved”. We plan to finish it next week.

Next week is Spring Break, but we will still be meeting. On Monday, we will be preparing for the demonstration at the Machinists and Mechanics Lodge. We are doing that on Tuesday, along with shooting our Robot Reveal video. Be watching for that, we have some exciting plans!
