Build Season Update: End of Week 2!

As of Week 2, Team 980 has developed its strategy for this year’s game, FIRST Power Up. Our robot will need to deliver cubes quickly (including in autonomous mode) and be able to climb during the end game. Our design team is creating the robot in SolidWorks, has completed the drivetrain/chassis and is drawing the cube forklift. The controls team has developed the vision-targeting code and has demonstrated autonomous modes on our prototyping robot. Team 980’s business team is preparing submissions for the Chairman’s and Entrepreneurship awards. We are making great progress in these areas in preparation for our first regional competition in March. Our goal is to bring home some blue banners this year and attend the FIRST Championships in April.
