Today we finished discussing the designs for the robot and we have the final ideas!

Chassis: Chassis B- 30″ x 32″ x 36″

Drive Train: 6″ mecanum wheels

Holding Fuel: Ball hopper on top of the robot that can dump balls in low boiler

Collecting Fuel: Conveyor system lifts balls and feeds hopper

Shooting Fuel: Two flywheels push balls down a pipe that can aim for high and low boiler

Collecting Gears: Stationary bucket will collect and deliver gears

Climbing: Pipe with multiple with hooks will spin until it grabs a loop at the end of the rope

We were able to start and  finish the gear bucket prototype and we started up the shooter prototype!
