Lot of reworking the structure. Redid the walls, the entire base replaced with wood, mounted the controllers to the wood from below, mounted the NXT, etc.
Worked on remodeling the physical structure of the bot, Changed the gear ratio of the ramp motor, changed the ramp structure, took off the metal base structure (moving to wood over the weekend), changed the code. Etc.
I was sick on Tuesday, had an allergist appointment on Wednesday, and did some website work on Thursday since I was feeling unwell from the appointment, so minimal work.
Working alone, today is my first day after July. I’m attempting to finally get the image gallery working, but mostly to work on getting the Carrier Robot ready for a 2 day workshop in August. I plan on improving the ramp, by using both encoders and a 180 degree lifting mechanism, as well as improving on the crater detection system.
Future plans for each robot are highlighted below:
