Week 1 of deep space has come and gone. The team was fast at work brainstorming, prototyping, and learning new software tools.
The CAD team has been working non stop and has completed the drive train as well as beginning to CAD the intake.
The Mechanical team has brainstormed many ways to get the robot on to stages of the HAB zone. As well as prototyping mechanisms to pick up cargo and hatch panels. The Mechanical team has also begun measuring and building game pieces.
Software and Electrical
The Software and Electrical team explored integrating image recognition and working with raspberry pi's in tandem with the roboRIO.
Listed below will be useful resources that members of the team can refer to. They will be organized in categories of software, mechanical, and electrical.
Please let me know if you want to suggest any resources that the team can use!
