Today, the Robolancers’ mechanical teams started to combine their subgroups to start planning the nuances of the robot. Previously, Gold and Crimson mechanical had been split into Chassis, Manipulator, and Lifting groups. These subgroups brainstormed, prototyped, and finally chose which mechanisms they thought were the best for each part of the robot. Now, they all used graph paper to sketch out how all of these mechanisms would fit on the robot. This is especially challenging, as both teams decided to build within 17″ by 17″ by 17″ dimensions, losing an inch of width, height, and depth. This made squeezing all three essential systems even harder, with a limited amount of space.
