Senior Combots

Senior Combots Wrap-up

The senior team had a great time designing and building BumbleBot v2 this year. The build was completed a bit ahead of schedule leaving plenty of time for testing. Unfortunately, the night before competition our weapon speed controllers fried and corrupted our receiver(s). We stayed up all night successfully replacing and programming new speed controllers for our weapon. Another unfortunate event took place within seconds of our first match when one of our switches shorted causing us to lose communication with the robot. Eventually (after both loses in the tournament) BumbleBot, now dubbed YoloBot, performed up to specifications after a couple grudge matches versus a printer.
