Week 1 and 2 progress

The design team has been busy and has successfully created a chassis design and a good conceptual model of the rest of the robot.

The mechanical team has been keeping busy modifying the cart, assembling gear boxes, and building field elements. James Libby, the LANCO cnc master started, on Saturday, cutting the box tubing that will make up the majority of our robot’s chassis. He hopes to finish it Monday night. The mechanical team has also been doing some prototyping for the design team.

The electrical team has rewired our batteries, replaced the cRIO’s and speed controllers on the two older robot chassises. The new roboRIO has now been installed on a drivable chassis.
