- Get Samantha so we could control robot over Wifi
- Driver practice
We had a simple goal for this meeting: practice. When Mr. Porter came with the robot, Hunter and Fletcher got to work trying to connect the robot to a wifi, but did not succeed. Farr and Bugert from the Deadbolts, team 4153, tried also, but came to similar results. Both the Deadbolts and we ended up just driving the robot with a wired connection.
We found that we could easily get six rings on the top row like so:
The Deadbolts also got their rings on like this:
We found that what the Deadbolts were doing was very good. We practiced our end game on them (as their robot was light — 11 lbs rather than the 20.9 that had broken our scissor lift previously)
Because of their lightness and ring scoring abilities and our IR capabilities, end game ability, and ring scoring abilities, the Deadbolts would be a serious consideration for us if we were a chooser in final alliance selection.
