We started off with the idea that we would try to progress with our bot as normally as possible. Unfortunately, the current situation the world is dealing with has put that to a halt. Currently New Mexico is in another shutdown as of November 16th, 2020. This has decreased the availability of components and shipping, along with the fact our team has yet to be able to meet up in person. We have continued to meet up weekly online to visit and talk about ideas and work on problems together.
Currently Colin is working on object recognition, Jimmy is working on voice recognition to hopefully allow the bot to have a different way to be controlled. Joseph is continuing to try and refine the bot’s armature and grappling claw. I am looking into new ways to remotely control the bot itself. We are continuing to do this with our personal Dexter robots, as we only have one competition robot. The plan is hopefully we should not have many problems transferring over what we have learned with the Dexter bots to the competition robot.
