Week 4 Day 27

Today we stated installing the gear mechanism after finishing all major components on it. We are continuing to work on the release mechanism for the gear mechanism but that is in its final stages. Electronics board is under construction and pneumatic are being prepped. In terms of our gear lifter we have 3D printed the hooks and have in stalled it. We are now working on a new iteration that has three prongs instead of four as to prevent the rope bouncing off the prongs. In programming news we have an exciting update. We have developed stabilization system. Using the gyros we can return to our previous position if our robot is hit from the side. It is still in development but we have it currently at the stage where it will return to its previous heading.
