Day 28: Drive Tryouts

Today's meeting mainly focused on testing/driving the robot.

The drivebase subteam worked on the practice bot's drivebase and found that the practice robot was drifting to the right because a battery was making the robot off-balance. They also continued to work on the bumpers, which are close to completion.

Gear intake continued to manufacture spare parts for competition.

Like yesterday, programming tested autonomous. The plan is to program an autonomous mode for when the peg is directly in front of the robot. They plan to add more autonomous modes later.

After dinner (Sloppy Joe) we held drive tryouts, which was delayed a little while because of some problems with the gear intake. The team hopes to finish drive tryouts tomorrow.
