The design team is proud of itself for finishing up most of its work with a week to spare. Now we just need to print off our designs and send them to the mechanical team (which has already completed most of a chassis) and get them machined. We are still messing around with different methods of holding the ball inside of the robot, but it should not interfere with the building process. We are having a good day, except for Jacob, who drove his car off the road and also ran out of gas while he tried to get out of a ditch. And, of course, Teddy got that concussion a while back, so he’s not having a great time.
Congratulations to our two raffle winners: Bryndon Page and Flo Sutter! Have fun at that Patriots game!
For the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition challenge, Stronghold, team Northern Force is planning to use an imaging system. This 2 Mega-pixel IP Camera has built-in infrared illumination and can operate over a range of high resolutions and frame rates which will be helpful in optimizing bandwidth with our software interface. At some point in the feature we hope to use the camera over wifi using an access point as explained in this wireless ip camera setup guide. Northern Force’s programming team is developing image-processing algorithms that will help the drive team target boulders at the opposing Stronghold tower!
