Tonight, the mechanical team worked some more on the chassis of the robot. We’ve designed a mechanism for sucking in the balls that involves spinning plastic ‘noodles’ that direct the balls towards the launching mechanism. Some of the other team members worked on making the ramp that our robot will have to cross over during this year’s competition. We also now have a working launch mechanicm that has two wheels on either side of the ball. So far so good.
