Vision Logic Open File Report

Updated 3/4/09

3/4/09 - Level 1 base finished

   Here you can see the first two levels on the new robot, the bottom one has the 12v gel cell battery (hidden under the lid), and mounted on the front of the lower deck is the bumper array. This is a new design, and consists of cut panels of circuit board mounted on an aluminum bar. The tactile switches are mounted on each of the four corners on every plate, and the plate is then covered with 1/8 lexan. The lexan is attached with silicone rubber adhesive on each pad of the switches. This offers excellent grip, and good flexibility. Once we get the main robot board installed on the middle deck next, we can evaluate the performance of the new bumper array.
