Progress - January 9, 2012

posted Jan 9, 2012, 8:31 PM by I.C.E. 3038
Today was another good day. We made really good progress with our design. All of the different groups presented their ideas for the final time. There seemed to be a general consensus that the robot should include the following:
-swivel shooter
-a mechanism to roll the balls into the shooting mechanism, sort of like a street sweeper, with the brush rollers
-use the wider side of the robot to suck up balls into the shooter
-rubber conveyor to move the balls up to the shooter
-the drive train is still being talked about at this point
Tomorrow we will be getting together again at Chisago Lakes from 6-9pm again.
Also, on Thursday, January 12, we will be getting together, same time, same place. We will be doing a team picture as well, so try your best to be there. Wear your 3038 shirts as well!
See everyone tomorrow!
