Our Final Post

Today is the 2nd to last Friday of the school year, We have attached and started to program our third motor located in port 6. This motor is the brain of the whole arm operation. It will provide power for our arm and will allow ability of movement and function. By monday we hope to have the arm done and ready for the challenge. Anyways this is our last post to KAMIKAZE KOBBLER. The blog will be heavily missed by everyone in the group and we hope to all of you who view that you enjoyed what we had to share.

Building the arm

We are now building a arm for our robot. The arm itself is an easy build but programming it will definetly become a challenge later on. We have built the basic structure of the arm so far but hopefully plan on having it completely assembled by friday towards the end of class. This is another step closer to another challenge.

Aiming For The Grade

Today is Friday the 15th, We previously mentioned we hope to complete this challenge today for our final grade of autonomous bot. We have to complete 2 and 1/2 laps in order to get a A for this challenge, we really need it because our group is far behind and are at low grade averages. After today we hope to leave this class better then we came in.

Are we ready?

May 11th, 2015

Henry is currently editing and finalizing the autonomous programming for our robot, which I am planning on giving a name to today. Our two other group members, are attending an assembly for juniors. We plan on finishing the programming by Thursday morning and bringing the robot to Mr. Martin for an official test. We are optimistic, and predict a good grade on the robot.

2 Laps

We have made progress. Our square bot can accomplish 2 full laps before it crashes into the chairs. The first lap is very clean with a simpler 2nd lap to complete 2 full laps. It took us awhile due to all of the adjustments and what not we had to make to the program. We hope to have the square bot programmed to due at most 4 laps for a A by friday the 15th.

Today we are taking a break from our bot and are currently updating our blogger. This primarily is to benefit you guys so that everyone can see our progress and we can collect our thoughts on everything that has been happening with our engineering class.

We have been working no stop in order to get our square bot to move a lap around the chair track. Its been a rough year for our group, we have had many setbacks and dont know if we will even pass 4th quarter because of this challenge but we hope to get this completed and done.
