Week 3 Build Update

We drove the robot for the first time yesterday, having 2 motors per side makes for a speedy robot, but we're still not satisfied - we plan to order new sprockets and give up some torque for extra speed!

The arm is almost done, our pneumatic storage tanks and cylinders arrived two days ago. We need to get some C-shafting so that we can build our gripper - having an arm won't do us much good if we can't pick up those huge trackballs.

The season is almost half way over - can we build a gripper and still have enough time to debug?
