Engineering Notebook – 12/22/14

Attendance:

Jacob, Tyler, Spencer, Joey

  

Goals:  

  • Go to South Carroll.
  • Test Shelf liner.

Meeting Notes

  • Ran two games with South Carroll.
  • Problems:
    • The robot wasn’t connecting to the computer for a long period of time
      but was later fixed.
    • The glue connecting the shelf liner to the wheels was getting reheated because of the heat from the friction.

Attendance:

Jacob, Tyler, Danielle

  

Meeting Notes

  • Tested many different autonomous programs.
  • Played many matches.
  • Reflections:
    • Why do we have Mikayla and Jacob in the same squad?
    • Why isn’t Brianna doing anything?
  • Next Time:
    • Practice at South Carroll
  • Shelf liner on the wheels

Engineering Notebook – 12/18/14

Attendance:

Jacob, Tyler, Danielle, Mikayla, Joey, Brianna

  

Goals:  

  • Change tape to shelf liner.
  • Skirt.

Meeting Notes

  • Mikayla completed both programs for ramp to pole and box to goal.
  • Danielle thought about how to adjusting the servo.
  • Jacob finished the ramp to goal program.
  • Joey and Tyler put the shelf liner on two of the wheels. Then tested it and decided to put it on four.
  • Joey and Tyler measured for the skirt and that we are going to use scrap metal for the skirt.
  • Brianna assisted Joey and Tyler with the wheels and recorded what we did for the journal.
  • Reflections:
    • Brianna should not cut shelf liner or design bracelets
    • Her sole job for building is a gofer (go fer it)
    • Jacobs program worked very well
    • Hot glue hurts (who knew?)
  • Next Time:
    • Go to South Carroll and practice.

Engineering Notebook – 12/15/14

Attendance:

Jacob, Tyler, Danielle, Spencer

  

Goals:  

  • Go to South Carroll and critique each others robots.
  • Drive on their playing field.
  • Test autonomous.

Meeting Notes

  • During testing of the autonomous period we found that…
    • We don’t need to drive the robot down the ramp, all we need to do is push it
      1/10 of an inch and then gravity pushes it the rest of the way down into the goal.
    • We should use six wheels instead of four.
    • We can use shelf liner to put on the wheels for traction on ramp.
