Week 5 Build Update

The robot is almost finished; we finished the gripper and bumpers today! The infrared sensor still needs to be installed. It will be used to recieve a limited set of commands from the "Robocoach" during the Hybrid mode. Our calculations on the amount of force needed to grip the Trackball were off, so we need to buy a larger pneumatic cylinder.

On Saturday and Monday we are going to practice competitions hosted by Simley High School & Eagan High School. This last week is the critical phase during which we modify our existing systems to make a robot that works in practice, not just theory!
