Robotics Team October Update

Oct 21st, 2015

The Robotics Team has been busy! Here is a recap of their October meeting:

During this meeting, we worked on our team website and set up a team YouTube channel.  We also watched videos posted by other teams to get ideas and learn from their experience.

On Tuesday, with the help of John Kelly, we learned that our spinning in circles was NOT a wiring issue.  Instead, it was because there was no programming telling our motors which way to spin.  We will continue to modify our robot design and begin writing the programming needed to control the robot. We are also building an arm which will need to manipulate game pieces during our competition.  We must test the arm to be sure it will be able to handle the pieces.
