Day 9

Today we officially voted on the drivebase we would use: 4 wheel, non mecanum.

After changing such a crucial part of the robot, our subteams spent a lot of time designing and building the robot.

Using ancient technology known as paper (I think that's how you spell it) our drivebase subteam drew and designed the drivebase for our new robot.

Our gear manipulation subteam continued to put together a gear intake system.

Meanwhile, software researched GRIP, worked on some software for controlling the gear intake system, and worked on testing NetworkTables with the roboRIO (we were able to install NetworkTables on another raspberry pi).
