We just perfected our 73 point Programming Skills run! It’s working very constantly now, and we should be set for tomorrow! We should be getting 90-100 in robot skills, but we will see. We didn’t get any driver skills practice in
If I get to it, I will post some pictures of our robot
We did okay at this tournament. This was our first time really driving with the new robot, so we didn’t do the best. We placed 4th place in our division after qualification, and the 1st place seed (323X) picked us for their first pick. We went through the eliminations pretty well, but ended up losing the finals due to our lift getting caught because we forgot to fix a standoff (lol, we failed). We are happy with how we preformed. We learned a lot, which is great.
We did not get 73 in programming (our code was wacky at skills). It didn’t want to back up as much as we told it to Oh well. We will be getting it at state though.
We absolutely failed at Driver Skills. For one, we hit a 4th buckyball into the goal zone from the tile while holding 3 in our robot, and apparently that DQ’s you?! This is what we did: http://youtu.be/6oPJcCEkZ7I?t=43s . We really just need to practice driving. Our robot is solid, and works very well. We just need to get some practice with it, and perfect it.
We should be set for State! Our autonomous will be 100%, and our driving will be significantly better.
Congrats 5003, 7701, and 7702 for winning See you guys at state.
I don’t think you know what I am talking about. After the skills situation at your skills tournament, we did not do that maneuver anymore (holding 3 in our intake then driving through the 3 in the bump; even though it is a legal action per Karthik). We didn’t want to cause anymore confusion for the refs.
I posted the link in my previous post of what we did.
We picked up the 3 buckyballs, turned around and went directly over the bump (we didn’t even push the large ball into the buckyballs on the bump). Once over the bump we hit the pre-load on the MZ starting tile (we didn’t even see it). I guess when we bumped the pre-load, the force of our push moved it into the scoring zone which I guess was illegal to do.
We will be thoroughly testing our 74 point programming skills run. Now that we are just practicing, I’m sure it will work perfectly -_-
