Racquetball Solidworks

We are having some setbacks due to errors in the left side of our robot. We thought it was the motor so we took it apart and wasted more time. We then found out it was the motor controller and switched it. It works now but our code will not work now. Pretty fun stuff. The racquetball controlled challenge was not completed. I hope everything goes well next week

This week we are starting the racquetball challenge. We will need to extend the arm so it can reach the top of the pipe where it will drop in the ball.

This week we are preparing to conquer the autonomous tetrahedron challenge. We are going through some problems but we will overcome them. Although we did not complete the solidworks tetrahedron, we are on our way to creating a design for the racquetball challenge. Hope it works

This week we did not complete many things due to problems with coding. Solidworks is coming along but is not quite there. Other then that things are going great. I hope next week we can complete the autonomous tetrahedron challenge and move on to the other challenges ahead.

autonomous arm

This week we are coding our robot for the autonomous tetrahedron challenge. lets go team.

This week we had trouble creating an arm design. Many of the designs had small flaws that prevented it from working. Solidworks is going well and I hope we can complete the tetrahedron challenge.

This week our goals are to build the arm to our robot and update our solidworks to resemble our creation. Another goal we need to achieve is conquering the tetrahedron autonomous challenge.

This week we programmed our robot to drive itself around two chairs for 3 laps. The program required extensive tweaking and editing becuase external factors made the ride inconsistent. It seems as though you should be able to program the robot to go for one lap and then copy that two more times but unfortunately that was not the case.
