This week we have equipped our robot with new functions such as two encoders for our motors. Unfortunately one of our encoders is not working, and we are trying to fix this problem. Hopefully we have two working encoders next week and can finally drive through our school with our robot ^^. (author: Daniel)
Due to severe illness there were no updates to our progress on the website. We are going to catch up on the current status! Some time ago we upgraded our wooden robot with motors and fixed them with 3d printed mountings. Oh... yes.... We know... It is no masterly work. But noone of our team … Student Robotics – mountings for our motors weiterlesen
Student Robotics 2018/2019 - our trip to Student Robotics was quite adventurous: As travelling across countries with robots and electronics as luggage can be quite unpredictable (you might be stuck with security for ages...) we planned our trip with a lot of extra time in between. Additionally it was unclear at the time of booking … Student Robotics – airport adventures with team MAI weiterlesen
As we told you some time ago: We are building with tools that have more power! 😉 This week we upgraded our robot with an arm. With this function we are now able to collect the necessary cubes to win this competition. Furthermore we decided to code with Arduino because our kit hasn’t arrived yet … Student Robotics – robot arm weiterlesen
This week we upgraded our robot with hinges on the backside. Now we can separate the battery and the robot more easily. By the future we need to think about: How are we going to transport the robot to England by airplane. (author: Daniel)
We started to build the chassis of our robot. As an advantage with designing our robot with a modelling program, we could measure the necessary sizes for the actually building. We decided to use wood for the material because it fulfills our requirements. Further pictures incoming as soon as possible! (author: Daniel)
We had a huge problem with the weight of our robot a few years ago. Maybe you remember: Our robot drove weird turns and we lost the knock out match. Take a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PZ3qB3ChQI&start=400 Maybe you have noticed in our latest post: We upgraded our robot. As I mention last week we have a problem … Student Robotics – solving the weight issues weiterlesen
Christmas for robot enthusiasts means: The first parts of our robot arrived. And as "Tim The Toolman Taylor" knows: All you need is MORE POWER. 😉 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBNPAJLhKZ4&start=0&end=10 The building process is up and running. We hope to deliver some more evidence of the progress soon. Stay tuned!
Merry Christmas for everyone! And let's hope for a lot of thrilling competition days in the year 2020!
