Our bracket and crater wall sections came today, so I assembled that and we put it on top of a bunch of floor mat sections so we could practice driving with it. Benno drilled a couple holes in the side of our small bookshelf and attached the bracket to it at the right height to mimic the lander. Jane figured out how to solve our coding troubles and has configured the robot! The driving works very well now, which is something to celebrate 😁
So far it looks like we haven't quite figured out how to drive over the chassis wall, but with enough practice we'll be able to solve that problem. Hanging from the bracket is being somewhat troublesome as well, so Benno is trying to fix that using our handy dandy tube of thread locker.
We're hoping that December 9th will be our first qualifier date, which means that we have 44 days left.
The code is working, the robot is driving, it's a good day for our team.
We are the Droids, and we'll be keeping you updated on our progress.
