Day 20. Jan 28, 2016

  • Today, we assembled the shooter and tested it. It performs as well as or better than the wooden prototype does, in terms of consistency and distance. However it is much more compact and will fit in the drive base once it is assembled.

This is a video of the launcher using a low battery at not-quite full power.

  • The drive base is now almost complete, with several sprockets installed, and the gearboxes assembled.
  • The programmers also continued working on the drive base code, as well researching how to make  buttons control various parts of the robot, like the intake and shooter.
