Week 3 saw the completion of significant prototypes such as the hooded shooter and intake system.
The hooded shooter prototype was cut with CNC router, drilled, and fully assembled. They modeled the intake/shooter using CAD and cut out a piece for the feeder walls on both sides. The heavy lift team finished the main piece and is preparing to mount the lift to the chassis. The light lift team has begun testing out their design and are working on modifications to ease the movement of the lift.
The business team has accomplished the completion of the outreach documentation, which involved recording the information, history, and future goals of our FTC teams. The next project to be completed was the financial plan. After the group had discussed with mentors and checked inventory, they finished finances for this season.
The electrical team began planning the electronics panel for our 2020 prototype. They worked with the mechanical team to figure out the implementation of motors and other mechanical components on the robot. The programming team modified the control panel by including code to spin the control panel based on the color sensor.
