We haven't built anything yet, but design is close to finishing. However, the rest of the team hasn't been sitting around - animation is cookin, strategy was, of course, done before design started, and controls has been programming and testing using new controller on last year's robot (we know we're using skid steer so we disabled the motor that did the car steering and rewrote the code in C) and writing modular code so we don't have to do EVERYTHING after build. Build team has been working with everyone else and prototyping stuff for design...but we do meet a lot more often than you guys
. Keep in mind that this year, a box on wheels and a basketball player aren't all that bad...I guess my point was that you might not be all that behind schedule just because you haven't built anything.
