Week 1 robot progress
Today we continued building and designing our robot.
We started by watching inspiring videos from “Robot in three days” where we got some inspiration for our creation. Later we went on making a part of our drive train, including assembling the gearboxes and the mecanum wheels. Assembling the mecanum wheels took more time than expected.
We also built prototypes for the climbing mechanism. We had fun ideas, we decided on making a spring loaded arm wich can be moved back in with a rope.
In conclusion we couldn’t do everything we hoped to do but the base of our creation has been layed.
