Day 9: Working Intake (prototype)!

Today our intake team made a working intake prototype! At first, the intake only took cubes in straight on, but adding springs fixed the issue.

Climbing also decided which motors to use and worked on a third design. This innovative design is much simpler, although it does have some disadvantages.

Lift researched different mechanisms that they could use. They also worked on more calculations.

The software team programmed a robot to drive forward and then turn 90 degrees. The accuracy is decent but still has room for improvement.

Some team members also worked on making a CAD model of the drivebase.
