cRio bench test assembly. The programming team utilizes it to test and prove programming and to learn new how to program new instruments for robot construction.
The team assembled a complete pneumatic system on a board for team training and for testing pneumatics systems prior to robot construction. The team used the board along with the cRio bench assembly to conduct pneumatics training at the annual FIRST robotics training day at Messalonskee HS.
On August 2nd, 2013, the shell for the "Beach Bus" for our summer beach trip was complete. But why stop there? Orange Chaos brought our technical minds together and began work on "Autonomous Mode," where the Beach Bus could move all on its own with nothing but a ultrasonic scanner and a couple strings of code. Not too complex... right? In all seriousness, the Beach Bot is coming along incredibly well. 2013's Brewer Days got a sneak-preview of the Beach Bot's new moves. Let's hope we can show it off more in the (preferably near)future.
