Field Elements Have Arrived!

The best day of any new season is when the field elements arrive! We spent all afternoon setting up the field in our garage. We are most excited about the carousel element of Freight Frenzy. So many ideas are bouncing around in our heads for how we are go make sure we accomplish the carousel part of the challenge. A rubber duck will be sitting on the carousel (picture on the right), and our robot will have to spin the carousel to deposit the rubber duck onto the field…during the autonomous period. Our programmers really have their work cut out for them! The carousel will be an important way to score points later in the driving portion as well so it is essential that we think of and design an effective and efficient solution!
