Today is Bag n Tag day, the last day of build season! After finishing the last touches of the robot, the TroboBots enclose the finished robot in a bag, not to be touched until competition.


It was the last day of wet sanding today!!! Every metal part of the robot, with the help of the entire team, has been sanded by hand going through 120, 220, 400, 600 and 1000 grit sand paper and polished. Im sure that everyone won’t be touching another piece of sandpaper for a while. Now it’s a rush to put everything together for testing.


Everyone continues to wet sand the parts of the robot. The electrical subteam tested and fixed issues with the practice bot drive system, tested the new motors for the final robot, and the ultrasonic sensor. Also they continued to test the right autonomous code and repair the practice bot encoders so they could find the voltage needed for each wheel. The mechanical subteam welded the battery support plates and electrical board support angles.
