This week we started to work on the design and the mechanism to collect the balls. Our first idea was that we collect the balls by driving over them and storing them under the robot so we don‘t have any moving parts that would only make it unnecessarily complicated.
Furthermore we now know what parts we will probably use. We decided that an arduino would have not enough pins so we will search for another cpu. We also need some infrared sensors to detect the lines, hall sensors to detect the magnetic field and lasers to navigate trough the maze. Our design is simple but effective. We will keep you up to date.
