Competition Season Meeting

Meeting Date Meeting Time Location Attendees
Sunday, November 23, 2014 Nick, Akhila, Laura, CJ, Brad, Braden, Josh, Trevor TCHS Brandywine

Tasks Reflections
Mechanical Work
  • Trevor cut PVC with the bandsaw and dremel tool. Trevor also used the belt sander on PVC and an axle.
Electrical Work
  • Mentor Julie, Laura, and Akhila worked on figuring out a realistic electrical configuration, thinking that the robot should built around this.
  • Akhila then made a schematic in LabVIEW, as well as a schematic in Paint to create a visual of how everything would be wired.
' Braden and josh worked on putting the linear slide and shooting system together
  • CJ with the help of Mentor Julie created a autonomous program that would go along with Nick and Laura's program. The program in theory can now drive until it comes into contact with the Ir then stop within an approximate time period.
  • Braden was able to get parts of the linear slide cut and parts of the linear slide on the robot
  • Josh developed millophobia as he had to mill all of the pieces to 2.5 inches
