Day 26: Testing Begins (For Real)

Today marked the end of a long week. It also marked the end of a long wait for a working robot to test.

The drivebase subteam continued to build bumpers for said robot. They also started to work on building some more field elements.

Meanwhile, the programming and gear intake subteams took turns working on/testing the robot. Many changes were made, and many more will likely be made when we meet tomorrow (yes, we're meeting on a Sunday for the first time in forever). Fortunately, the gear intake now works (sort of).

The team also took the electronics board off last year's robot, Sir Costalot, and put it on another drivebase to use for drive practice (although today it mostly served as practice fixing communication issues)
