Day 35: Active Collector, Powder Coat, & Electronics

After we posted some videos and our CAD part of the feedback we got was people asking us about our collector choice. We liked the passive collector for it's simplicity but we understood why an active collector would help. The last two days we prototyped an active collector for our robot. We got it working tonight.



We also received our powder coated parts back today.




Mechanical assembly will be begin in earnest very soon.

We started electrical assembly of the competition robot today. The belly pan is baltic birch plywood with a 1/32" piece of acetal on top of it. 


Here are a few other photos from robot construction.
