Wednesday February 3, 2010


Today has been a very eventful day. The PAIATAAOTGOR (Pneumatics as it applies to alternative aspects of the game or robots) sub team has successfully developed a method for elevation! Hopefully we will get a video if the testing posted soon. The best way to describe it is that there is an I shaped frame that is located under the chassis. At the intersections of the frame the pneumatics actuators are attached. The remained of the pneumatic cylinder is attached to the chassis frame. So when the actuator extends the chassis is lifted up and the I shaped frame remains on the ground. Then if we add hooks to the top of the robot, we should be able to retract the I shaped frame, so that the robot is elevated. Hopefully we will be able to get a total of 4 2 ft actuators in order to make this elevation method more stable (so if there is anyone who would like to give us a gift we would be very grateful :) )

Good Night
