Week 6 of build season, 2016

With build season ending in less than a week, we have finally finished the first robot, and begun testing. Mechanical is still hard at work on creating the second robot, as well as fine-tuning the first as programming tests and debugs the code. The programming team is also working on implementing some encoders so that our robot can be programmed to take action during the autonomous period.

The Electrical Team has finished their electrical board, and is now at work replicating it for our second robot. They are also working on organizing all of the robot’s wires to make it easier to work with and change the board.

The webpage team has also been working hard this week; they’ve made a new website and plan to launch it soon. The previous website was deemed too old-fashioned, so they decided for a complete revamp. With any luck it will launch within the week, but it goes without saying that it will look fantastic!

Our entire team has been working hard this week, as with the deadline coming up, the pressure is on to complete the robot and everything else as soon as possible. We need as much time as we physically can to test and optimize the robot, and we have a lot of people working on getting it over or through all the defenses. With all the work we’ve put into the robot, we hope to see it excel at this year’s game.
