Well, we know what our robot will do.
It will score all 3 rows.
It will have a mecanum drive base, possibly nanotube.
It will load from the feeder station.
It will not be able to floor-load game pieces.
It will have a minibot.
The Whats are good to go; the Hows should be knocked out tomorrow, unless we have a snow day. As of right now, we’re looking at a telescoping or forklift-style lift with a very simple, possibly not even articulated, end effector. Tonight and tomorrow are research days; we’ll come to a conclusion tomorrow.
Great work done by all, we’re going down a very good road. We’ll likely have a very simple robot that will perform well (don’t all teams say that the Monday after kickoff?).
The decisions we came to weren’t necessarily voted or consensus; we simply listed the possibilities, debated the pros and cons, and the best ideas rose to the top in a very obvious manner. (Thanks JVN!)
Hopefully soon we’ll have pictures to share here.
