Week three update

In the third week, the remaining obstacles were built, the electrical board was completed, and the gearboxes and the associated motors were connected to the board.  Some robot code had also been written. So far, we are able to get the motors run in both stages of the game, the autonomous and the teleoperated stages, so that it can move on its own, but can also receive commands from the human drivers. Aside from that, the image processing code was also being worked on, so that we can later see from the robot’s point of view when we drive the robot. Lastly, work has begun on our ball handler, and the robot frame is nearly completed. We expect to begin driving the robot in the middle of week four.
