The CyberCards have been working hard and tirelessly to get the competition robot ready for FIRST Stronghold 2016. Here’s what the separate teams have been doing.
CAD has modified the kit chassis, constructed the intake system, constructed the arm, and constructed the arm drive. Soon, they will be working on the design review for the judges.
The electrical team has completely wired the robot, and will be wiring the basket motor, and the mini sim.
Mechanical has finished the practice bot, and have nearly gotten done with the comp robot. They still have to work on placement for the arm mount in the comp robot, and the tires.
Programming has been working on color sensors, buttons, and coding for the robot.
Control team has been working on sensor placement and the control board layout. They have CADed the control board and are getting ready to build and wire it.
Media finished the Chairmen’s essay, the Woodie Flowers essay, and the video for the Chairman’s presentation.
Strategy has been working on the strategy for the robot. They have decided that it should be a main breaching bot, small enough to go under the low bar, and it will be able to clear all the possible defenses.
Business has turned in the Chairman’s and Woodie Flowers essays, and are currently looking into human player stuff, seeing how it could possibly affect their strategy.
We have come a long way, and there is still so much to do. The CyberCards will pull through with the perseverance and dedication they have become known for.
