Prior to putting this year's robot under lock and key for "Bag Day" (also know as "Stop Build Day"), the team and their creation jumped onto a bus to La Crosse for testing on an actual competition course. Here are some highlights:
Day 1 - Hardware and Software subteams both worked on the robot, and after some tweaking, many of the kinks associated with a fast-paced build season were straightened out.
Day 2 - More minor kinks were worked out. More testing was done. Drive/Strategy group got a chance to launch the robot on the practice field and do some live testing, such as climbing, lifting, and grabbing of game objects. During this day, the team also learned how to assemble the bumpers, a feature required for all robots to compete.
Team members participated in practice matches against other robots, and proved their ability to successfully gain points in all categories. The robot was able to control a total of four power cubes, which will put the team at an advantage in obtaining their "levitation" points, and allow them to assist their robot alliance with levitation should the need arise.
After this practice run, the team is confident in this year's robot, and anxiously looking forward to upcoming competitiions!
