- Test all components, don’t just check that they are present (we found out the last week that we had a motor that was probably broken from the beginning)
- Always check for software updates.
- Be sure to leave plenty of time for programming and move quickly from the start.
- Get a machine shop to sponsor the team.
- Don’t forget to apply for awards.
- When testing your robot, don’t put the wireless router really close to a plug strip or transformer; it might cause a lot of interference. In my case, it didn’t work at all and it took a while to figure out what the problem was. There is also a lot of interference in garages.
- HAVE FUN!!
