Members began the week by working on code for the intake, wrist, and claw systems. The intake system contains spinning rollers that allow the operator to take in game pieces while the claw simultaneously manipulates these pieces to score. By moving the claw up and down, the wrist apparatus acts as a bridge between these two systems, allowing the robot to score quickly and efficiently.
Members continued testing the mechanism while integrating it with the other subsystems in preparation for the Week 0 Event at the end of the week.
Over the final week of Build Season, members of the intake subgroup conducted preliminary tests of durability, speed, and efficiency with the system mounted on the robot for the first time. As the week progressed, students had to work around small problems, such as imprecision in certain areas. After Week 0, the group plans to continue testing and perfecting the mechanism before the team’s first district event.
