The Innovators have worked manufacturing the parts to build the robot. With these parts manufactured, they finished assembling the base. Another group on the team finalized the CAD of the gripper. Other members have been machining gear base box plates for the driving motors.
The programmers have been busy testing the new controller. They have done initial programming of the elevator on the robot. The drive system code is mostly in place, but needs testing. They have also done initial programming on the tilt arms.
After much brainstorming, the scouting programmers have been deciding what aspects of the game needs to be recorded. Scouting has proven important in the past when the team was in a position to pick an alliance. Good scouting helps identify the teams that would be complementary to make a good alliance.
