Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – striding ever closer to competition

We are now in the final stages of the design and should start printing by the 10th of January. Parallel to that the programming team has also started familiarizing itself with the Arduino programming enviroment. While we are making really good progress on finishing the robot before the 24th we sadly found out that some … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – striding ever closer to competition weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – refined design of our robot

We are now very close to finishing the design of our Sumo-Bot. Our new design features a separated space that is able to store up to 2 kg of Iron-Power. This enables us to increase the weight of our robot up to the competition regulated limit. Having a heavy robot in a small form factor gives us incredible amounts of grip, … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – refined design of our robot weiterlesen

Eurobot 2018/2019 – changes to the small robot

Last week we changed the design on the small bot and did a lot of brainstorming about it. We came to the conclusion that we need more sensors on every side for collision detection while rotating to be homologized. Since the small robot is for collecting the elements and throwing them into their container nearby … Eurobot 2018/2019 – changes to the small robot weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – a new design and a new plan

This week we worked on our design of the “Schüler bauen Roboter” robot. Our new plan for the interim meeting on 24 January 2019 is to go with a completely functional but not so well-designed robot in order to have more time to design and develop the final robot. We decided to do this, because … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – a new design and a new plan weiterlesen

Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – almost finished design

After we had finished our final design this week, we bought wheels and motors for our robot. Finally we bought two 50 mm aluminum wheels with a bore of six millimeter. We also bought two 12 V, 380RPM engines which will presumably arrive on the sixth of January 2019. We paid attention to the size … Schüler bauen Roboter 2018/2019 – almost finished design weiterlesen

Student Robotics 2018/2019 – technical design decisions

We are mostly done with planning our robot. It took us quite a while because we had many different ideas for solving technical and tactical problems. We had the idea to store the tokens in our robot and then distribute them to the areas where we want them to go. We do not tell you … Student Robotics 2018/2019 – technical design decisions weiterlesen
