Thursday, February 7

Today, the mechanical team worked on the intake system, installed rollers and attached the poly cord.  They also continued working on the CAD design for the climbing mechanism.  We are trying to have the whole robot completed by Saturday.  The final construction has begun!

The electrical team continued to work on modifying the old program.  We were mostly trying to get the tank drive to work on the simulator, but had some trouble with the directions of the motors.  After hours of switching axis and polarity to different combinations, the robot still spun in circles when we told it to go forward and vice[-versa.  We think it could be a problem with the simulator.
