Attendance:

Alex, Zach, Drew, Danielle, Charles

 

Goals:  

Builders

  • Put stages together
  • Put stops in lift
  • Attach lift to a crossbeam
  • Attach chain to gears
  • Attach servo to claw
  • Attach lift to robot

Programmers

  • Make a test set-up to test the program
    • Be sure to include everything that will be on the robot
  • Make a meccanum wheel drive program
  • Make a drive program and 1 motor program
  • Make a drive program, 1 motor program and a servo program
  • Test

Meeting Notes

Builders

  • Put 4 stages1 together
  • Put stops2 in the lift
  • Attached linear lifts to crossbeam which attaches to robot

Programmers

  • Built a test set-up
  • Test drive and lift programs

Stages are a combination of apiece of C channel, a sprocket, 2 guilds, and 2 racks for a rack and pinion
Stops stop the stage from going all the way up

Parts

The picture above shows the test set up the programmers built:

  • The lift motor controls the linear lift
  • RB (Right Back): is the drive motor in the back on the right side on the robot
  • LB (Left Back): is the drive motor in the back on the left side the robot
  • RF (Right Front): is the drive motor in the front on the right side the robot
  • LF (Left Front): is the drive motor in the front on the left side the robot
  • CDR (Core Distribution Relay): Distributes power to other modules
  • MC (Motor Controller): Provide 2 motors power
    • DC Motor: Turns 360 degrees forward or back
  • SC (Servo Controller): Provides 6 servo motors with power
    • Servo motor: Turns 180 degrees
  • Phone: Sends direction to the CDR about how much power to give to the controllers
  • Battery: Stores power
