Tonight was spent on many things. One was finishing programming and testing our autonomous tracking code. The code’s objective is to move itself toward a certain hue of yellow, which will be useful while in autonomous mode at competitions! We also worked on many prototypes on Autodesk, those being an intake system for totes, placement of our electrical board, and placement of our upper frame. Meanwhile, off of Autodesk we had a group working on an actual attachment for our mock-up upper frame. What the attachment does is uses pneumatics to grab ahold of totes and pull them into the main cavity of the robot. Back in the shop the mechanics were working on grinding down and smoothing our frame, which had been confirmed for the design and welded together within the last few days. Keep checking for more news about Build Nights for the team 269!
