We make the final adjustments in the construction department so that we can write the final version of the code for the autonomous period.
SEASON DIARY 2018-2019 ROVER RUCKUS
We use vaseline in order to ease the extension of the collecting arm.
We had a discussion about what to work on next and decided to invest more work into the collecting arm.
After assembling the new dual motor system, the time it took to get off the lander improved significantly.
Because the time it takes the robot to get down for the lander was too high, we decided to use two motors for this task, yielding results at least 33% better than the last system.
We worked together with Alexandru Stan in order to find a solution to our autonomous program issues, fixing both precisions and speed. We researched more about the gyro integrated into the REV Expansion Hub.
We had the pleasure to visit Autonomous R&D center to create some new pieces for our lifting arm: using a trapezoidal screw.
We assembled the collecting system and the extending arm. We are very pleased by the way the elastics behave and how efficiently it collects.
