This week (yes, we met on Thanksgiving weekend, we’re dedicated like that), the team made many improvements on Excalibur.
The programmers finished the IR sensor detecting autonomous program, tested it, fixed it, retested it, refixed it, and finally completed it. The pragmas on all codes also had to be adjusted – thanks to Ashru Septim for doing this tedious task without complaints!
Meanwhile, the engineers were busy doing many things to enhance the performance of Excalibur in tournaments. Because there is a one inch varient in the flag spinner that the team was not aware of, they must make a new attachment to the back of thr robot that is able to move to grasp the hook to turn the flag. They prototyped that change. The engineers also re-geared the lift to be faster, attached the IR sensor, and daisy chained the motors.
Oin and Nocturna also searched for companies who might sponsor thr team. They have reached out to Hasbro (it’s worth a shot…) and Thinkgeek. If you want to sponsor Team RPG, emai, us at email@example.com to get our information. We appreciate all of our sponsors!
In other news, weather permitting (Coach Foo doesn’t do sleet), Team RPG will be at the Mount Juliet parade on Saturday. They will have some fun things set up.
