Today was our last day of build season, and we could not be more proud of our robot! We named it Artemis, after the Greek goddess of the moon.
We were able to successfully test all of our mechanisms, as well as make a lot of progress on our second robot, which we did not bag and will use for practice between now and our Hudson Valley competition.
We are extremely proud of everyone on our team, and would also like to thank our mentors and parents for their support throughout the season. Without their help, we would not have a robot as amazing as Artemis!
We have finished our first robot, and started making our second robot, which is the one we will use in competition!
We also CNC’d and 3D printed a bunch of new parts, such as parts for our hatch and cargo mechanisms
Electronics has finished their board, including all of our pneumatics parts.
Our programming department has continued their testing, and will be able to use this year’s robot to test soon!
We have had a very productive last few days! Firstly, electronics has made a lot of progress on their electronics board, and it looks amazing.
Programming has also made a lot of progress with their limelight and camera codes, and have been testing them on our robot from last year. Here is a video of them working!
Engineering has built a lot of our mechanisms, and they looks great! Our cascade group has made their own custom gearboxes, as well as finished assembling their mechanism.
Our hatch group is almost done constructing their mechanism as well, using a new idea involving gripping the hatch with triangles. This is a video of us testing our final prototype, which will look very similar to our final!
The chassis is almost complete, and all of the components are assembled, including our gearboxes.
The cargo intake is also finished, and we are in the process of making a second one as well, using our new CNC machine!
