Today we met to figure out the details on how to get the arm to move. We decided to use a pulley system which helped to extend and retract the arm which allows us to only have one motor controlling the whole arm. This allows us to conserve weight when it comes to the arm, as well as making it easier to move. We watched a lot of you tube videos and brainstormed a variety of materials that we could sue as string. We also made a cardboard prototype of the bucket that we would be using to pick up the blocks. We decided that we want it to be able to pick up 3 blocks at a time and also to be able to have blocks be swept into it by the sweeper.
This blog covers details about our outreach events and other events that are important to our team, and our season.
