We practiced today using the geared robot drive motors and wheels. The robot is much faster, but some adjustments are needed in that the robot drifts slightly when traveling. We will run the robot for a short time to let the chains stretch and gears break in before checking and adjusting. This is a definite improvement in the robot.
We also started working on adding a rotating arm onto the skyscraper lift. We also finished modifying the stone clamp. Here are sketches of the modified clamp.
We also started planning our autonomous skystone scoring mechanisms and programming. We plan on identifying both skystones and sliding them into scoring position one at a time.
