Deep Blue Robotics Update: Monday, January 16
Today, the gear prototype team presented their test process and results to the team mentors. The morning was spent making finishing touches on the prototype before their presentation. After a few minor adjustments, the mechanism will be fully designed and ready to fabricate!
The shooter team completely redesigned their prototype today. The fixes allowed for fewer clamps to be used and for increased accuracy. In addition, the hood will now be adjustable to change the angle of the shooter. Several other designs have been considered and prototyped, including a two-wheel shooter that will include two wheels to compress the ball and increase accuracy.
The climber team performed several tests on their prototype today. They attached the practice electronics board to the mechanism and tested various weights for the climber to lift. Making good progress!
The mentors spent the day reviewing prototype tests and designs from the various prototype teams.
Programmers: Programmers continued their individual projects to get the robot to work.
