Saturday Week 2

Yup, that’s a driving base. Saturday of Week 2. Yup.

Of course, it’s got the 2010 code in it, so there is no strafing to be done, but hey, it’s a start.

Today we built the tower, we (mechanically) built the minibot, we finished the wiring on the drivebase (not in its final configuration), we finished the field CAD, we started lathe-ing some of the manipulator components, and we started designing our deployment system.

Still waiting to hear back from the 8020 distributor; hopefully we can obtain direct contact early next week.

Our deployment idea is to have a ~17″ arm, base-high, on a horizontal pivot. It swings around and engages the pole. At T-minus :10, we’ll deploy the minibot with pneumatics in some way.

    It’s great to see such a transparent view of how another team runs their build season. Thanks so much for showing how you approached the task, and how fast progress is being made.
