With much work to be done, the all sub-teams set straight to work. The electrical sub team continued to work on the camera code, this time focusing on the main base of the code. The mechanical team continued to work on their P.O. and those not working on the P.O. began to prepare for the sprint review. After the sprint review, the electrical team went back to coding while the mechanical team searched for parts. After finding the parts, the frame layout was drawn out and then electrical and mechanical worked together on figuring out how to fit all the electronics on the robot.

As soon as study hall was over, the electrical sub-team went straight to work on the camera code. They were able to make it compile information, but the camera image wouldn’t go onto the drivers station LCD screen so they continued to work on that. They also documented the sensor and tank drive codes. The Electrical Bible was modified with a custom template. The mechanical team completed most of their P.O. and organized the current parts that were in stock. They also cut the parts for the robot frame and retrieval device.

“Bend your knees, not your back! Back up, now turn! Bring it in!” Today was an exciting day because the raw material came in. The mechanical team gathered raw materials and refined their P.O. to a greater extent. The electrical team worked on the camera code and Electrical Bible.

The electrical team continued to work on the Electrical Bible as they documented the d-link and robot code. They also got the vision testing to work after much trial and error. The mechanical team tested band mounting in Solid Works and built a mechanism that engages and disengages dog gears. The P.O.s were also revised to be a precise as possible.

Behold the all powerful and knowing Electrical Bible! Along with documenting the electrical bed and getting the new axis camera to work, our electrical sub-team began to put together the Electrical Bible. Our mechanical sub-team researched the parts they would need to order for the gearbox. When that was finished, sights were set on building the catapult bucket.

On this fine Sunday afternoon, we gathered to work with what time we had. The electrical sub-team began the documentation of the drive code, driver’s station, motor controllers, and wiring diagrams so that they could be used for the years to come. More of the camera tracking code was added and the camera was prepared with a light. Wires that needed to be soldered were also taken care of. As for the mechanical team, the catapult was rebuilt to make it stronger and a force was determined to disengage the dog gear. Along with all of this, a P.O. and BOM (Bill of Materials) were written out for the winch system from AndyMark.
