Day 10

Today was a longer meeting than usual, thanks to mentors being able to show up at 6, our normal ending time.

Fortunately, business team was able to buy pizza for everybody (despite having a little trouble with the bus) and our team enjoyed some very...interesting dinner conversations.

Because our gripper subteam lead had to leave early, most of the meeting was spent working on the drivebase. With the extra time we had, we were able to finish the new drivebase. However, the drivebase doesn't have motors or gearboxes because we will have to decide on those later.

Meanwhile, software continued to develop and work on robot software. This consisted of working on SmartDashboard, researching GRIP (an image processing library, although we probably aren't going to use it), and fixing git merge errors.

Later on, we stayed for our school's showcase and drove our T-Shirt shooting robot Tomo around. While we weren't driving, we worked on some action items for the next few meetings.
