Day 17: Prototype drive base and intake

This is our prototype sheetmetal drive train and intake. It's actually one of the most cleanly wired robots we have built, mostly because the large center rail hides all the power wires. Once we add PWM and connect all the motors we're sure it won't look this clean.


The electronics layout is working well so far. We are planning to bring back our back panel from 2014 that makes reading gauges, or connecting to the robot much easier.

Here is a picture from our 2014 back panel.

The shooter prototype will have a new back panel made to increase compression on the balls after we worked with magic tape to figure out the level of compression we wanted.
