How we’re doing so far We are currently in the process of prototyping dif- ferent mechanics for the robot and testing func- tions. The team has broken up into sub-groups to start working on different parts of the robot to Worked with CNC to prototype, testing different intake prototypes for power cells to see which works best. Control Panel Looked into making the arm pop up horizontally. Created a prototype that spins the control panel. Modeled the drive train in Solid- works, had design review to make sure everything is in the right place, and started manufacturing. Electrical Intake Drive Train Made a mock up turret for lime-light programming and assembled electri- cal and pneumatic test boards. Tested the color sensor and the limelight, while training the new students. Pro- grammed electrical and pneumatics test board. Issue 2: February 1, 2020 PAGE 5 Programming
