January 25, 2016 – Monday Meeting Recap

New members of the electrical team were tasked with brainstorming ideas for safety videos that will be shown at O-ZONE’s booth at competition. The 3 ideas for video topics were to always report injuries, solder without distractions, and never touch the battery while power is flowing through the robot. They will start filming at the next meeting.

Fabricators requested other members of the electrical team to add a victor and move parts of the board on the catapult prototype so that the intake will be able to fit on it. For the 4-wheel prototype, researching needed to be done on ways to cut the metal that will attach the bumpers, which for practice purposes are currently represented by pool noodles. Another group of fabricators begin to make gear boxes.

Programmers completed a code for autonomous mode on the 4-wheel prototype and the drive team was able to test it. Work still needs to be done on the coding and a gear box on the robot needs to be fixed in order for it to move.

Members of both the electrical and fabrication teams edited the pneumatics involved on the wheel shooter sled, a victor had to be rewired in order for the prototype to run smoothly.

The design team continues to make plans for platforms, the sally port, wheel shooter and climbing arm in SolidWorks.
