The design process
Orientation and Grip alignment
To begin, the robot orients itself in the field. To do this, it drives along the long and short walls. In order for the grip to be in the correct position to pick up a stone, the robot aligns the grip, places it on the floor, and reverses until the grip is horizontal.
Picking up and placing a stone
The following graphic shows how a stone is picked up and placed on the tower. In order to place the stone, a wireless signal is required from the Chur robot, to signify that it has already placed its stone. Bot Spencer then places its stone on the tower.
Picking up the tower-top
The following graphic shows how the tower-top will be picked up.
Placing the tower-top
When the Chur robot has placed its final stone (red), Bot Spencer will place the tower-top on the tower.
