07/26/17 – Clockwork Running!

Today in engineering, we worked on Clockwork, Veronica, and the t-shirt cannon. On Clockwork, we fixed a motor for the agitator and prepared a versa planetary encoder stage. Aftter that, we were able to hand Clockwork over for vision, skills, driving, and general practicing. On Veronica, we fixed the gearbox by changing a bad bearing that we had not previously thought of. We also began prototyping Veronica’s gear mechanism. On the t-shirt cannon, we put all of our electrical team in attendance to work on the wiring to get it running.
