Monday Week 17

This week there is not much to do due to testing so this post is going to be nice and short. This week since we only have two days of engineering we plan on putting our arm on the robot and maybe if we have time begin testing the robot.

Friday week 16

Out of our two goals for this week we were able to complete one of them. We finally after all this time finished the autonomous challenge with a B. Now its time to put are full focus on the robot arm so we can finish that.

Monday week 16

We are back and forth with the same two challenges. Our goal for this week is to finish the autonomous build and attach the arm to our robot.

Friday week 15

Our group is back on the autonomous build again. We are getting closer and closer with this code and hopefully we can finish it by next week so we can continue working on the tetra challenge.

Monday Week 15

This week we fixed our bluetooth problem and now we are up and ready with autonomous. Our goal of the week is to come up with the right code to finish the autonomous challenge so that we can continue working on the robotic arm challenge.

Friday week 14

On this Friday our group decided that arm arm is to short for the challenge so we managed to find a rail that is tall enough for the challenge. We installed the rail and we are almost done with the lift. Now with the autonomous challenge we are having a few Bluetooth issues so we still haven't
completed that but we have are code ready for it.

Monday week 14

Well we managed to build half of our robot arm for the challenge. So now our goal for this week is to build the other half of the arm that consist of the gears and the motor that shifts the lift part up and down. We also want to attach the two parts together and attach are finished arm to the robot.

Thursday week 13

For the end of the week recap we made a design for the arm and we began building. The design for are arm is based off of a system of gears and a motor that moves a metal bar up and down. By next week we should be finished with arm.
