Team Updates

The team decided on a prototype and constructed a second revision of it. Our design is a mix of the velcro arm and the wheel intake making it a viable option for hatch and cargo manipulation. This design is meant to be attached to a REV lift to place hatches and cargo on the cargo/rocket ship.

The Robotiators have finish building the practice stages to help us show the obstacles that we need to overcome to help us in the future competition. We also are beginning to build a lift for the robot, seeing how high we can lift, and if it’s capable. We are also building a claw for the ball and for the screen.

Today, the team finalized prototypes for the robot. We plan to vote on the best ones on Monday. Here are some photos of what the team came up with. CAD models for each prototype are almost complete and we are almost ready to begin testing with a prototype of the robot.
