Power Up Build Season Update Week 2

January 20, 2018 at 10:01 AM by Brennan Roberts

We've officially made it through the second week of build season. A lot was accomplished this week especially in the areas of programming and build. That's not to discount others work though, CAD continues to model our robot on computers and adapt to each change made non-stop while fundraising currently has relations with several prospective sponsors. But the big highlight of the week is the completion of our drivetrain. While there is still much to do this accomplishment marks a step up from last year and the ability to begin testing the code. In fact, the programming department has already been able to test, and successfully so. Now that the drivetrain is complete and functioning properly we can expect to begin taking prototypes for other necessary game function into production for the robot. With another full two weeks before our target completion date, we may actually be able to pull it off.
