Question about bumpers not being “articulated”. If we build “C” shaped bumpers, with the top and bottom of the “c” (short pieces) attached to the long piece with small hinges, so that the C can “open up” and then close around the frame, and be attached in a fixed position, is that OK? So the bumpers would be “articulated” when they are OFF the robot, but fixed in place when ON the robot; no hinge-action could happen when the bumpers are installed.
The idea is to have a connection to stabilize the short pieces, which would only have one bracket each, but still be able to take the piece off the frame by removing the pins and opening the hinges.
I think this is OK but just wanted another opinion.
