first step to a successful robot is the brainstorming process. The engineering
design process begins with a definition of the problem to be solved. This
includes relevant calculations and strategy planning.
Once the table was completed, it was analyzed by the entire team in terms of simplicity of design and construction, and the efficiency of potential designs. The team decided as a group that it was best to keep the strategy simple to avoid over-complicating driving and increasing likelihood of robot malfunction. From this analysis, the strategy was narrowed down to two potential game plans for which designs could be formulated.
