Still working on one turn that the Robot keeps messing up on ( Week 7 )

As in today Mr. Martin made the challenge easier by adding cones, so now we have to do the figure eight but around cones instead of chairs which makes it easier because the turning angle is not as tight. Although, the robot still keeps on messing up on one of the final turns. We are still re adjusting the code and putting the battery power in the range in needs to be at.

In here the robot basically keeps turning the opposite way instead of going around the cone

Adjusting speed and turns ( Week 6 )

We are checking if one of our motors has more power then the other and adjusting the speed. We found out that we needed a new motor since one of them was putting to much friction on the cortex having the danger of blowing it up.

Still working on the figure 8 code ( Week 6 )

So far we keep getting pretty close but is that one turn who is always messing up the code. So we are trying to figure out why is that turn messing up we are messing with the wait time and the speed and power. We know what the codes are but the variables is what we have to change. We also changed the wheel because it was loose etc.

Still working on the figure 8 ( Week 5 )

As in today we are closer to completing our figure 8 project than last Monday, we had to make the code longer so we can do the figure 8 twice and also adjust some power and turning coding. We have successfully tested the robot about twice but we are still working on some coding since it doesn't go as supposed to every single time.

Autonomous Figure 8 (Week 5)

 This week we are working on coding and testing our robot to do a Figure 8. Our robot is fully functional and moves with the controller just fine. Our batteries are fully charged after being charged overnight and we are planning on hopefully making our robot autonomous by the end of the week.

Making our robot move ( Week 4 )

Right now we are moving the cortex more towards the back of the cortex so we can make space for our battery clip and put the battery in it. This needs to be done so the battery is not left hanging in the robot. We are also programming our Robot to make its first basic movements.

Robot Wish List (Week 4)

Today we have completed our robot and added the final wheels and screws. This week we hope to start coding our robot. Konnor is adding the screws we added to our robot today and the finishing touches to the SolidWorks build as well. We are also connecting our robot to our controller today.
