We’ve almost reached the end of Week 6! Mechanisms are complete and the robot is assembled. On Tuesday, our robot will be bagged for competition.
Chassis completed the first chassis. The second chassis is almost complete, but it still needs pneumatic gear shifters.
Hatch Panel completed and tested the mechanism. Cargo is adding limit switches and optical sensors, but is otherwise complete. Climb is making modifications to extend the length of its skis and requires more testing.
