March 2, 2022
The struggles of creating a functioning robot are evident at the CTE center, but the Alluminator’s current design is gaining the critical ability to target its shots autonomously.
“I just hope I can get the robot to shoot on its own in time,” said Wylliam Roberts, the lead programmer. “Persistence is key when it won’t work, Why won’t it work!?” says Brandon Wyffles, the secondary programmer. “Our main struggle now is just getting the intake working,” said Mitchel, the lead designer. The robot will have the capability to collect balls from the game field and fire them at a target.
These are all the features that the team can manage to add before the competition which runs from March 3rd to March 5th, although March 3rd is just a practice day. People at home can watch the competition on the twitch channel (Watch here) where the competition will be streamed during the competition days.
