pic: 258 testing traction on the ramp.

A picture of 258 testing the ramp with 2002’s robot.

Amazingly, it didn’t tip over once, during testing, despite the fact that Bill was visibly afraid of that possibility.

At one point, the robot became stuck, and while the wheels spun, the grate of the ramp tore pieces of the already worn tread off. A very interesting discovery.

The picture was taken inside of the secondary gym at Lincoln High School. The Robotics Lab can be seen through the doors in the upper right of the image.

Bins are being used as seats. Oh the humanity. Will the madness ever stop. Etc.

Apparently Harry Garland wears retroreflective shoes. Perhaps we could program our autonomous robot to seek him out, and knock him over. But perhaps not.
