We are practicing the line challenge today!! super excited with the improvement. We are now waiting for Paul to design a proper mount for the pixy 2 camera. Most importantly, Jimmy spent a lot of time with the coding for this challenge. He started with finding C code from Robokits, he then chose different pieces of the code and translated it to Python..THEN he added it to our previous code from last year in hopes to improve. Great work!!!
Yeah that's right, back and better than ever. Paul got down into it, as he began using his brain power to come up with the new chassis. How did he do it you might ask? With just a little bit of focusing on strength and a minimalist point of view he was able to come up with the idea. In addition he spent 4 months(realistically-two afternoons of serious hard work) to learn a new software called Fusion 360. Fourteen hours later and 1 kilo of plastic, our chassis was born.
Our expected changes
-Hard wire mounts
-forming the design
-implementing changes and working creative work around.
It’s that time of year again. Jimmy Alexander Here...
As CNM students are starting up the 5th week of classes, the Solar Cat’s Team is starting up our now yearly #PiWars Robotics fun! We have started setting up additional meeting times so that we can work on creating the BEST ROBOT EVER!!!!!!! As we are just getting started we do not have a whole lot to update everyone on, but we decided we would give a brief overview of some of the ideas we have come up with so far.
Ideas: (NOTE: Some(most) of these ideas will not make it past the planning stage)
Things we plan on keeping from last year’s robot:
My name is Abigail, I'm a CNM student currently in pursuit of a biology degree. My current role in the team is to clean up/organize the lab, blog/take photos, and I'm one of the drivers for our robot.
