CAD & Design

-Intake Crayola CAD continues. We should have it ready within the next couple of days.


-An adjustable launch angle catapult was developed from the original prototype, allowing for more accurate testing.

-The AM14U2 kitbot revision 2 was completed and driven over the defenses. We were unable to achieve a conclusive result, however, due to the chains continuing to pop off and the width of the drivebase is almost as large as the platform width, making initial alignment and maintaining alignment difficult. The wheelbase needs to be shortened for adequate testing.


- We started with investigating the memory problem of GRIP.

-Fist, we watched to see if there was a memory leak. It did not appear to be so. If there was one, it was unnoticeable.
-We deployed the GRIP program, watching the RAM before and after. The GRIP program used almost 50 mb of RAM.
-For now, it seems that GRIP only causes memory issues occasionally during deploys.
-Since this did not cause a serious problem, we decided to wait for a GRIP update to address this issue.


Field Elements

-The ramparts were completed and the seesaw remains under construction. Construction also began on the portcullis and tower.
