This week, the robot has finally started to come together. We have begun the final assembly process, and the countdown to “stop build day,” as well as the competition, is imminent. Although many small problems have arisen, our main road block at the moment is cutting the robot’s weight by about twenty pounds. One of the most important milestones of the week was the final mounting of the sweeper. After about an hour of frustrating adjustments and tweaks, the design has been finalized. Finally, our electrical team has begun to wire up the robot in its final configuration.
