Chassis Testing

Today we made progress with programming and prototyping, and we’re trying to get our robot in order. We prototyped a six-wheeled drive center drive train and tested to see if got over the crater. After many tests, we found various issues that are shown in the picture below. After the testing was finished we concluded that it wasn’t the best drive train for this year’s challenge.

Conclusion: This chassis get stuck on the crater. Moreover, the gears will grind up the crater and it will certainly be declared illegal. Therefore we must not use it.
