First Meeting of the second Semester
We are back from the winter break and hard at work on our robots! We have our 1st competition on the 6th of February. Our big robot has decided to go with a chain and hook manipulator for picking up cubes. Our "Acute" robot now has a working base with a lift mechanism almost ready to be attached.
Prototyping with the Team
On Sunday the 5th of October, the team met to finalize their decision on the design of the robot. The small robot group is going with a tank drive, U-base, Scissor lift robot with a hybrid manipulator using parallel conveyors and a gripper. The large robot is also using a scissor lift with hybrid conveyor/claw manipulator but are opting to use mecanum wheels with a U-base for better maneuverability. A lot of progress was made with the four motor all wheel drive and scissor lift construction.
