Build Season is officially halfway over! We have finally completed several important aspects of the Robot’s final construction. The CAD designs for the robot are complete, and we will soon have hands on all the physical parts necessary to build the robot. The robot is set to be completed a week and a half before build season ends, giving us ample time to test and streamline the design and controls.
The Electrical Team is working on a printed circuit board, which will be used in the final design of the robot. The printed circuit board is a great addition to the electrical arsenal, as it is extremely customizable, making it easy to make one to exact specifications, even those heavily restricted by the mechanical construction of the robot.
The Inventory Form system has released beta 1.0 and is steadily improving. A mere 3 hours after release, patch 1.1 was released, enabling the use of offline addition and subtraction from the spreadsheet. In layman’s terms, the Inventory Team has created paper forms for part removal and return instead of requiring the presence of an Inventory Team member to input the change.
Programming has been working on getting the gist of the code within the understanding of both old and new members. Their focus is currently on interfacing with cameras and helping the newer members get used to the programming concepts used in programming the robot.Read More »
