Layout Redesign

January 15, 2022

One of our members had exposure to a classmate who had tested positive for COVID, so we had to cancel the onsite meeting this week. However, that didn't stop us from progressing! We held a 45-minute Zoom session instead, and it's time well spent!

We redesigned the layout, and were thinking about making a robot that can pick up the packages from the warehouse, and take them to the distribution center. We also wanted the robot to pick up the recycling from those houses and return to the warehouse. We found a robot design for the NXT 2.0 called Snatcher. It uses a single motor to both grab an object and lift it up into the air. We thought we can add a line follower sensor to turn Snatcher into a line follower so that it can find directions to go to places.
