Outlining Robot Characteristics

We decided that the deadline for the robot chassis was September 22 because we have a scrimmage on October 4. We made a list of qualities our robot should have. The chassis had to be:

  •  sturdy
  •  easy to repair
  •  precise in both attachments and turning radius
  • compact
  • heavy enough to push challenge obstacles

The sensors we decided that we might use are light, infrared, and touch sensors. Ultrasonic and sound sensors were ruled out because the sound of the auditorium would disrupt them. Light sensors would be used for the colored lines on the mat and possibly the search engine model.

We talked about the project and narrowed to topics down to learning patience, learning how we learn, social cues, and money management.
