Meeting Log February 16, 2019

So, its the last week before Regionals, so we have a lot of work to do, from robot work to presentation.

  • Linear slide arm repairs
  • We started off the day with working on the elbow for the arm. For the past week, we've been dealing with the gears on the elbow stripping. So, we replaced the gears on both sides, threadlocked the motors so that the shafts wouldn't wobble, and installed upgraded triangular gearkeepers so that that that that the gears would fully interlock, preventing the gears stripping. This process took about 90 minutes per side, taking up time we needed for autonomous. But, our build freeze has persisted - we haven't added anything else. In the same vein, Justin worked on the 3D model, integrating the corncob into the design.

  • Blog updates
  • We're also trying to finalize our journal, so we're finishing up posts. Janavi was working on a post about the research poster; Arjun was working on computer vision posts; Abhi was updating code posts. Ethan was going through and retagging posts so that the table of contents is accurate, fixing the posters we're printing, and updating presentation photos. Janavi and Kenna were also working on the handouts for Regionals.

  • Driver practice
  • Since Karina isn't here, we're letting Ben practice driving. We're consistently getting 2-3 cycles in the lander with him as opposed to Karina's 4-5, but practice will help. He's not all there yet, he crashed the robot somehow, but its a start. We're also working on autonomous delatch and tuning as he drives using telemetry data.
