Pittsburgh Competition

Last Thursday, the team traveled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to partake in the competition at California University of Pennsylvania. The competition was a blast, and we learned a lot about our robot, as well as other robots that we will see again at Finger Lakes Regional. We saw many fantastically constructed robots, and Fezzik (the man himself) performed great. Our team didn’t make it into the elimination matches, but we learned a lot about what our capabilities are, and troubleshot a lot. Fezzik is now functioning at close to full capacity, and we look forward to seeing him in action at Finger Lakes. The team had a ton of fun interacting with other teams and other robots.

Week 1 After Build Season

Week 1 After Build Season

With the robot finally completed and bagged earlier this week, we have focused all our attention on our replacement robot, Inigo. He’s fully put together and is undergoing testing to make sure that he works like he’s supposed to. Mechanical has been very busy the past couple weeks getting everything completed in time, and it has paid off. Once we got the 3D-Printed wheels from Rochester Optical, Mechanical was able to put Inigo together quickly so he can be tested. Electrical has been working on Inigo’s board, and with it completed has joined Mechanical for troubleshooting. Programming is testing their vision code for use on the final robot.

The entire team has been progressing immensely lately, and we’re happy to say that we are feeling great about this year’s game!
