Ozone robotics team continues to develop new ideas for this year’s challenge and test them. Our goal for Saturday is to have multiple prototypes on sleds and able to test so we can choose which ideas we want to further pursue and make better.
On Monday, our team captains met to reorganize the robotics tools in the wood shop in order to increase efficiency. Today, members from every team took apart old cabinets and organized any tools left in them.
All pneumatics on the pneumatics test board are hooked up. Returning members taught old members about parts and FRC rules regarding pneumatics through building the board. The electrical team continues to work on wiring components and placing them on the board.
The electrical team worked on modifying a sled to fit a ball shooter prototype on it. They swapped out a roboRIO and wired an extra victor. The coding team flashed the broken roboRIO in order to fix it. The coding team also worked on tank drive and ultrasonic coding. They proceeded to test the ultrasonic coding on a sled and continue to modify it.
The fabrication team continues to build parts of the field such as the boiler, gear peg, and hopper. They are also working with the drafting team to construct and test prototypes. Currently, there are multiple ball collector prototypes that spin horizontally and vertically, as well as shooters and rope climbing mechanisms.
