Week 5 Update 2016

During Week 5, our team finished putting the final touches on our robot, which included mounting our electronics onto the aluminum frame. After attaching the pneumatics and wheels, we were ready to  test drive! Our team was extremely excited to see our robot functioning and driving for the first time. We encountered robot communication problems, but these were quickly resolved. As our robot drove over the defenses, it flipped over a couple times. Fortunately, our robot was undamaged, and was able to get up and running.
