Don't be alarmed, friends. No one had to take any exams in the shop today. Rather, the focus in the shop was on testing my different parts. All of these tests are helping my builders to fix my designs and make them better.
In order to really text my ball intake and hanger, the girls needed to mount the mechanisms. A lot of time was put into considering the spacing because I am such a small robot. The team also talked a lot about where my compressor and tanks will go. Some people worked on designing the wheels that will guide me while I hang. Others worked on a smaller hook design. The hanger went through a lot of adjustments today but I can tell that it is getting closer and closer to becoming strong.
The programmers completed a lot today, too! They spent a lot of time cleaning up the code. Later, the new computer got a new hard drive. How exciting! The girls also spent a lot of time looking at the field measurements and using math to figure out the distances that I will need to travel during autonomous.
I cannot believe that the build season is just about halfway over. That's crazy!
