It is week four and the entire Vault 6936 team is working at top gear to complete the robot, now affectionatelly known as "The Lorax". The Build team has constructed the final arm mechanism for our robot, created custom pieces of assist in fastening the arm to the base, and cut out metal according to CAD designs for the arm. The Programming team has finished programming the linear actuator and are now working on programming sensors and cameras. Our CAD team finished and tested jackscrew design; due to the jackscrew design not working as well as expected, they started making a new climbing mechanism; worked on the layout of the electronics plate, and assisted the build team. The Business team completed the chairman’s essay and questions, and practiced using Premier, a video editing application, for the chairman’s video, got another sponsor (thank you so much Yaskawa!), logged finances, worked on designs for shirts and banner. Vault team appreciates those who participated in the Pizza Dive Fundraiser last week! We're working hard as we approach the much anticipated bag day and would like to thank everyone for their support!
