Today officially marked the beginning of build sessions for Viking Robotics as we kicked off our first meeting since kickoff last Saturday. After our Boeing mentor Eric gave us a fascinating demo on our new laser sensor, team members broke off into small groups to prototype their various ideas, create the human player station, and work on the drive system. Also, several members worked on designing CAD drawings which will be used for 3D printing parts for the robot. However, CAD was not the only work being done on the computers today, since our wonderful programming team was hard at work downloading new software tools that will allow our robot to actually work once it is built. Great job everyone, keep creating!
Our next meting is Thursday at 4.
