Day 19

Today's meeting was much shorter than usual, due to a lack of mentors.

In such a short time, there was only so much that each subteam could accomplish, but we tried.

The drivebase subteam stole a bunch of brand new electronic components from the electronics cabinet and began designing the electronics board. It seems as though the drivebase subteam is always doing random tasks such as these, probably because they have one of the simplest systems on the robot.

Meanwhile, the gear subteam (with a much more complex system) continued to make multitudes of loud noises as they continued to design and build their system.

The software subteam (consisting of only one person this time) worked on the raspberry pi with the full intention of taking it home and testing some more.

Such are the advantages of software...
