Pre-SVR Day 10:



The polycarb flap that indexes the frisbee was modified to be thicker. The indexer superstructure was changed and we reverted to old butcher knife plates to lower compression on the disc. The default state of the indexer was also changed from the bottom to the top. The team is making these modifications to increase the rate at which the robot shoots discs.


Team members took apart old wheels, cleaned them up and removed old rivets and tread. The wheels were not re-treaded.


Members started wiring the photoelectric sensors for the shooting and indexing sequence.  This would optimize and speed up rapid firing as well as autonomous mode.IMG_20130322_210552IMG_20130322_210934
