Mid-Point of Robot Build Season!

Team 980 members are working hard, building our 2013 competition robot!

We are meeting Mon-Thurs from 6 pm to 9 pm and Sat from 10 am to 4 pm at 907 Flower St in Glendale.

Here is a CAD image of our robot climbing up the leg of a pyramid:

Week 3: CAD model of Team 980 robot climbing pyramid

Team members are prototyping a frisbee catapult, laying-out electronics and pneumatics, assembling the chassis and drive train, and designing our control system. As an example, we’re deciding how to approach the pyramid leg when ready to climb: can we use the camera or should we design mechanical guides to properly align the robot?

We plan to take our robot to the scrimmage at Harvey-Mudd on Sun. Feb 17 (just 2-1/2 weeks from now).
