We had a great time visiting the USF Racing Team yesterday, and got some terrific construction and design ideas from looking at their baja cars. We learned a lot about strengthening up the robot’s construction, got more ideas for improving our belt design and learned a bit about electrical considerations.
It was great fun to learn about the racing team’s design and construction process and to see this season’s car in progress.
An evening Skype meeting gave TDT members an opportunity to discuss some of the new ideas and what they want to accomplish at their next couple of meetings this month.
Lots to do, and actually a decent amount of time to do it (64 days until our next competition!) if everyone stays focused and on task.
