The first drive train is complete! Electrical has finished their prototype drawing! They are also almost done with their computerized drawing! Hybrid programming is collecting parameters for the robot and making steady progress in general. The rest of the teams are also hard at work and have been for the entire day.
Testing the Drivetrain
Electrical Designers at work - or are they reading the blog?
I wasn't able to do much more than collect some statements from each sub-team, but at least the blog is finally getting updated!
Week three of build season in upon us! The control and electrical teams are both nearly finished with their respective designs and we should see both by Thursday. Students and mentors have told me that the shooter is going "Fantastic." The chairman's group has started filming this year's chairman's video and the essay is being circulated for edits and comments. The drive train group is chaining. Dogtag sales should hopefully be picking up soon; see Austin (the alumnus one, not the student) to order one. Andy has a functional scouting program set up although he plans to make further improvements before loading it onto the scouting laptops. Finally, marketing would like to hear people's input on the team logo for this year.
Everyone is working very hard! The drive train is nearly completed! Field has a fully functioning ramp! Andy says the scouting system is going very well! The conveyor is being designed! Mechanical is making steady progress! Yay.
