08/26/17 – Climbing Mountains

Today in engineering, we worked on Clockwork, disassembled old robots, and began making decisions for THOR.

On Clockwork, we made yet another change to the winch by adding a CIM with a 45:1 ratio. This makes it climb in six to seven seconds. Rahul and Yanis also worked on wiring for Clockwork.

Zuha, Isabelle, and Peter spent the meeting disassembling our old hopper. This was primarily done to salvage motors as well as reusable pieces of sheet metal and gussets.

For THOR, we established a general idea of who would be on drive team and in the pit crew. We also made the deadline of deciding which robot to take on October 7.
