A place to talk about what happened with the electrical components on the robot.

Today we finished the basics of the electrical test bench. The 4 drive motors and their corresponding talon SRX's are all wired up and ready to go.

To Do:

  • Test the test bench: fix any errors
  • Secure the router, and wire the rest of the motors onto the test bench
  • Get the Mechanical team to give their motor requirements

Today, we made sure the test bench is working without any errors. We added the signal light, which had been forgotten yesterday, and continued work on the remaining part of the test bench.

To Do:

  • Secure the router and the signal light
  • Add more motors onto the test bench (maybe)
  • Figure out where things are going on the robot

The RoboRIO, PDB, Breaker, and Router are all mounted. Still to do are the victors, talons, VRM, and the battery (which moved btw). After everything is done, we could also use a shield above the roboRIO and PDB. But first, wiring :P

The 5 Talon SRX controllers were labeled with numerical stickers so they can be identified visually.
The autonomous rotary switch and gyro assembly was installed, then removed for hold-back (for testbench use).
