During our practice run today, our robot went swimming in a sea of rocks. It started sinking slowly and that’s when the rocks got stuck in the wheels and jammed them. The wheels themselves also became loose where you can move them. The only thing that should be moving the wheels is the motors. Josh started fixing those issues right away.
In todays hour long testing, we were able to collect 13 rocks.
The hand mechanism broke near the end of the day. We are thinking about replacing the piece that broke with an aluminum or wood piece because our 3D printer has already been emptied for the summer. We will find a solution and fix it on Monday.
