Challenges 5/17/18

Image
The end of AP testing is today for both Garrett and I. This means the completion of the autonomous code for the ball robot challenge comes soon, most likely next week. Hopefully with all that needs to be done as we near the end of this school year we can still find the time to complete this fun challenge.









AP Robots 5/15/18

Image
This week is the 2nd week of AP Testing and everyone is on edge especially with the robots to deal with on top of it. The autonomous code for the robot is unfinished as of now and will probably stay that way for the rest of this week. Once we get going again next week it shouldn't be difficult to complete it.









Pause 5/11/18

We've taken a bit of break from the code for autonomous while AP testing and EOC's take up a significant amount of time. After next week well be back to the challenge and for now we work on the solid works mock up and updates. Garret is still at work with the code when theirs time.

Onward 5/7/18

Today I continue with the autonomous code for the ball challenge. The ball must be lifted by the robot and placed in the white pillar within a minute of starting. It's definitely a bit quieter without Garrett here. I don't believe i'll finish this code today but i expect to finish by the end of the week at the latest and complete the challenge.

Autonomous Ball 5/3/18

We haven't been in engineering for almost a week and are now beginning to work on the autonomous challenge for the blue rubber ball. This happens to be the last minor challenge of the year. After completion we will take apart the robot and begin building for the competition challenges.


Blue Balls 4/27/18

Image
We finished the manual ball challenge yesterday afternoon. we had to move the blue rubber ball from the ground to the white tube in less than a minute, finishing with 16 seconds to spare. Now that we've finished the first part of this challenge we will be moving on to the autonomous part of this challenge. We will be writing the code for this challenge today and hopefully move on to the next on Tuesday next week.

Autohedron 4/23/18

Image
Today we completed the code for the autonomous tetrahedron challenge and have been given the ball  and obstacle for our next challenge. The challenge entails picking up a small rubber ball and place it inside a large white tube. we've begun to build the extension on our arm in order to pick up the ball and will be able to complete the challenge next class.
