On Saturday, January 6th, Cyber Blue attended a kick-off event at the University of Indianapolis alongside a handful of teams from central Indiana. After the event, the team read the 2018 Games and Season Manual to understand the rules more. Throughout the next seven days, the team made a few advancements:
- The manufacturing sub-team rearranged the field for more space and constructed the field with game elements including the switches, the scale, and the portal.
- The design sub-team created multiple prototypes using CAD while the manufacturing sub-team built some of those prototypes.
- The public relations sub-team started working on the Chairman’s essay and the Woodie Flowers essay.
- Lastly, the electronics/programming sub-team executed some ramp tests and worked on vision for the robot.
