  • Used smaller test robot to create an autonomous program that goes down the ramp and travels 3 feet then turn; left and travels an additional 2 feet.
  • Problems
    • Need to steady the bucket with additional screws
    • The autonomous program worked however the angle was not always consistent. Need to trouble shoot for speed and weight.
  • Next Time
    • Work on wiring the robot and start designing the ramp for the bucket, continue working on autonomous program
