Today we tested a few of the robot’s main functions. One of them is the cannon. This part of the robot shoots the balls (water) into the water tower. The loading process had a few problems. The balls didn’t fit into the spaces where they should fit. Another problem is that the balls did not … Eurobot 2017/2018 – Hardware Test: Revolver Cylinder and Beacon Towers weiterlesen
We updated our GitHub repositories.
Yesterday we had a long testing period. Because of the different ground surfaces we tested on, our turn method works inconsistent. We decided to test in a classroom as its ground is similar as we expect it to be at the competition. Through many adjustments we managed to turn our bot precisely. We also fixed … Eurobot 2017/2018 – Hardware Test: Driving weiterlesen
We have learned: Thorough testing is one of the most important parts. All modules of our main robot are undergoing practical tests these days. The examination of the cannon consisted of several tasks. The cannon should not only shoot the balls. The balls should be landing inside the tower. We think that we found the … Eurobot 2017/2018 – Hardware Test: Cannon weiterlesen
We solved one major equation for our positioning system. Let's hope we didnt miss any important variables. 🙂 We updated our repositories, too. The working parts of our code are committed to GitHub.
HOLIDAY! And we are proud to be at our school preparing for our competitions. 😉 Both teams (the one for Schüler bauen Roboter, the other for eurobot) are doing their very best. Take a look how beautiful the little one on life support parks next to its older brother.
We finally assembled our main robot for eurobot competition. First tests .... sound promising! 😉
We are setting up our testing area. Towers, home automation panel, ultrasonic beacons... You may also sneak a peek of our robot. 😉
Just a short update for today: Our automation panel is going to be built this weekend. Hopefully our builders know how to use our conceptual design. 🙂
Our first approach to collect the balls was a tube-shaped object. The balls would be accelerated by a hair-dryer and.... Yes, we noticed it. The tube was too big for the contest, the hair-dryer was a stupid idea. And it didn't work at all. 🙁 But at least we tried. 😉 So our hardware team … Eurobot 2017/2018 – Technical Approach weiterlesen
