Picture me Rollin

It's been a little while since the last post, we've been insanely busy trying to get Yeti's wheels on the ground. On the mechanical end, we've been held up for a week on the welding due to the repeated snowfall. Our welder has been working overtime keeping the snow-clearing equipment for Dartmouth running, so we've been nervously biting our nails as the deadline slid. The bulk of this got done today, so we should have the chassis and hub components assembled tomorrow.

We've ordered enclosures from Carlon to house the electronics on the robot. These will be arriving on Monday, so we should have most of the bot assembled by the middle of next week. This has been an interesting lesson on how to motivate subcontractors when they have no stake in the final product and you're not paying them.
