  7. Things that pull in opposite directions • Speed vs. Torque (Pushing Power) • Weight vs. Complexity • High reach vs. low center of gravity Trade-ables

  8. Requirements Objectives • Your team must be able to build it • Pass Inspection The LIST of Functions Move Thing? Thing Thing Thing

  16. Conceptualization • Start Thinking of Robot Designs! • Start by thinking of some designs alone • State how it does stuff • Then work with your table to pick a design • DO NOT GET EMOTIONALLY ATTACHED • Don’t say “Because I want to” or “Because another team did it” January 9th, 2013

  17. Critical Design Review • Work with the table next to you to review your designs • Look for possible flaws • Did they meet their requirements? • Go through their list number by number • How did the team meet each one? • Why did they make those choices?

  18. BUILD • Welcome to your primary design! • Change based on prototype results • Watch out for ship date • Be aware of unexpected problems • Snow days • Parts not shipping/arriving on time • Rules Updates!!! • Pre-Ship Regional(s) January 13th, 2013
