The Brehm robotics team works with the new control system for the ‘09 season. The system is a wireless router that is more high tech system than last years. This system is required by the regional robotics competition. The team will be going to visit Aisin, a large manufacturing corporation, which will be sponsoring Brehm Preparatory School in this spring season. This company is a very important person to have sponsoring us. The team is still looking for more sponsors to help fund us. the site was launched about a month ago launched the website after weeks of work. Although we have lost a few team members, we still are a very strong team despite the losses.
The team has contests with two teams from different class periods that battled robots built to resemble the ones used in the competition. The simulations included models of the robots used in competition. The controller stands in the box with the control while the robots are in a square now. The square has many obstacles in it that deterred the robot in certain tasks. The tasks include picking up balls and putting them into boxes. Each box is worth points for the team. These competitions include many robots. The team needs more sponsors for the ‘09 season. The team is assembling a robot right now in preparation for the robot to come. The robots are tried on time and effort. The robot that best completes everything with in the time limit wins and goes onto the next round. At the competition the robots are judged on their skill and the skill of the people controlling them. The robotics team works daily on assembling robotic pieces and wiring them. They are now using wireless technology. The wireless technology is what will be operating with for the ‘09 competition.
