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!
