The original plan for the day was to draft strategies, so we met to arrive at a team consensus for our game plan. As our team debated on what design to follow through on, we came to the realization that our discussion was not making progress. Evenly divided on whether we should shoot for high goal or low goal, we separated into two groups: one for the high goal and one for the low goal. The designs that each group would come up with would be presented at CDR (Critical Design Review).
As the day progressed, selected designs were solidified and important decisions were made; by the end of the day, each team had written stories and tasks and had begun to assign roles to each group member. While some people researched previous robot designs online, others created prototypes out of things like pneumatic cylinders.
