Designed to Succeed 10/26/18

At the beginning of this week we dismantled the robot down to the base in order to start a new design for this next challenge. We've decided to use this new design to sweep up the balls in the arena, feeding them immediately into the launcher mounted behind it. This will allow us to launch the ball at the same relative angle as before as well as reduce the area of the robot needed in order to feed the launcher the ball. This extra space will allow us to use it for the arm mechanism needed to move the caps within the arena and put them on the flags on the perimeter.
