After extensive internet and forum research, review of how we built past intakes, and quick prototyping, we came up with a new wheeled intake plan. This plan includes
- Motor placement over the robot body instead of hanging out front of the machine.
- Four 3â wheels on the intake to move the stones all the way through to the back of the machine.
- Room to put in a lift mechanism that does not rely on rotating the arms.
We will work on this over the Thanksgiving break as we can.
