Day 20: Programming & Gear Intake

Our programming team has started getting our autonomous running on our 2014 practice robot. We are using a very similar drive train to that year so it makes it simple to test code on it.

We did a lot of research into alternative gear intakes over the past few days. The geometry we were working with wasn’t really working out the way we wanted and we think we found a better solution. We are still using the carbon fiber sheet as a bottom but now the intake pivot directly around are main Fuel intake shaft so it’s lower to the ground and we will score the gear just by rotating it a little over 90 degrees instead of the 180 degrees we needed for the previous geometry.
