Unhappy Really Bad...

My team doesn't seem to realize how important it is to get things done quickly. I know that this is hard to believe (and I am very unhappy), but our team hasn't even STARTED to build the robot! We've only got a prototype, and even then it's mostly just some wood with wheels, motors, and the control system. We're doomed! Not only that, but no one else realizes the importance of meeting over the week. The only time we meet during the week is on Wednesdays at lunch during school (not a good idea because nothing really gets done), and after school on Fridays (sometimes). Also, we only meet about once on the weekend! I seem to be the only one (except for the adults) who realizes that we are in HUGE trouble. I hope that I'm the president next year. I would try to make sure people are better prepared. If the saying: "You learn from your mistakes," were applied here, I'd be the world's smartest person. But even if that were true, I still wouldn't know what we are going to do now.

We were supposed to be driving by yesterday, but we had the little incident with *someone's* bad calculations, and the parts for our new wheel mounts haven't arrived yet.

We do not have a mobile base yet either although the chassis and other items are coming together. Machining, errors and part shrtages are killing us....

We've had prototypes rolling on last year's drivetrain for a while, but as for this year's robot, just as Bill said, casters...

Alex, you better get on your teammates to start getting serious.
We were a rookie team last year and we worked on the bot every day after school, Saturdays and Sundays. We had our bot done with about three days to spare for practice and adjustments.
If the kids don't care about the robot than the engineers will loose interest. I know I would.
Talking about the robot doesn't get it built.

Wayne Doenges

BTW we don't have a moving robot. yet, but we are real close to having everything built.

we've been driving for at least a week

we've had our prototype driving for about two weeks and the kids have been practicing with the drivetrain and rollers now for a week. we're way ahead in that department though and it's mostly a product of luck and extra hard work by a few of us with a lesser amount of credits. we all go to school full time, most are taking 17 or 18 creds, but we have 24 hour shop access and a waterjet cutter so we can rip parts in minutes instead of hours or days. good luck to everyone.

Well, our chasis was just completed yesterday so we "attached" an experimental drive train to it (with C clamps ) and drove it. It only went for 2.08 seconds though.

We have a pretty cool prototype and chassis. our actual bot has yet to come. being a rookie member, I have no idea if we are behind schedule.

Well, we don't yet have our rolling bits and pieces, so we're not moving around - but, we do have our chassis completed and will have most of the control hardware mounted by tomorrow. Then, it just becomes a matter of dropping the drive train into place (and hoping it works!!!)

There's also the little matter of my forgetting to order roller chain. So, right now, we're counting on the wind produced by the muffin fans as propulsion

Our base is up and running, but we still are behind schedule (not that we are ever ahead of schedule). We have only two of the motors running but all looks good.
