Big Saturday

we gathered all the different systems into one cohesive robot and finally got to put our pneumatic trigger (shown in picture) to work.


The robot works with the feeder station and shoots automatically. Our shots need to be more consistent to work properly.


We also tested a simple 10-point with the back wheels still touching the ground. Hanging still needs work to effectively level the robot.
