Forklift Delivery Run V1 

February 28, 2022

Today the team has been working on the Forklift robot drop-off section. The forklift is designated to commute between the conveyer belt in its final version. Here the forklift picks up buckets with boxes, transports them to the sorting facility, and empties the bucket into the sorter.

The task was to get the forklift to follow the white line until it reached the wall in front of the sorting facility. Here it triggers one of the two touch sensors at the bottom of the forklift. The forklift would then stop after the bucket was emptied as its tilted.

Brandon and Leon reviewed and fine-tuned some of the code we prepared for them. The drop-off mechanism is not fully functional yet, but we have made good progress.
