Meet 3 preparation

Today we did some preparation for meet 3 such as tuning the robot’s mechanics including it’s program. With the new parts attached on our robot, this will make harvesting minerals over the crater a lot smoother. We started by cutting off both bottom parts of the harvester including an inch of the skirt. This makes climbing and harvesting over the crater more smoother. Then included a guider next to the harvester’s deposit hole with a senor placed inside the dumper. When the robot harvests 3 or more silver or gold minerals, the senor will active which causes the dumper to get rid the extra mineral and continues its harvesting and dumping process.  Finally, we attached a sonar sensor on one of the side panels for more consistency on the autonomous.
