It is a bittersweet feeling coming to the end of this module. We’ve put in so much hardwork and have had lots of fun along the way, and now it’s all come to an end. 😦 Regardless, we have learnt so much from the module and creating Imp Bot. The power of creation is truly … More Week 18 – And here the road ends
The final week has arrived! With one final major component left of calibrating the coiling up and down of the containers, we are well on track to complete the project on time. First, we had to locate the position to secure the bicycle brakes. Once they were secured at the correct position, we had to … More Week 17 – Calibration and Videography
As the week draws to a close, let’s recap on what we’ve done the past week. We 3D printed 2 propellers and 4 spool connectors to be connected to the servo motors controlling the container. We also 3D printed new motor brackets as we made some dimensioning errors previously with the old motor brackets. … More Week 16 – Final touches and float testing!
The past few week’s put our efficiency to the test – and our spirit at the same time. We pulled through, worked very hard and managed to get everything working by the Final Technical Review day. That morning we uploaded the Arduino code to the Arduino board and tested out all the various parts, but … More Week 16 – Final Technical Review
Now we have arrived at the final day before the final technical review! With lots to be done, we arrived at the workshop early at 10am to get started, braving the heat in the workshop due to the air conditioners not being scheduled to turn on. The very first thing we did was cut new … More Week 15 – Final Day!
Now the final technical review is just 1 week away. This is a prime example of where the saying “It takes 90% of the time to do 10% of the work, and 10% of the time to do 90% of the work” holds lots of relevance. All the previous time we spent planning out the mechanisms … More Week 15 – Home run
This week was a very hectic week as all of us were heavily involved in the entire fabrication process due to the very limited amount of time left before the final technical review. As such, our progress accelerated very quickly. At the same time, we had to think of the weight to trigger our container’s … More Week 14 – Fabrication Progress
