This video will show Delphi E.L.I.T.E’s safety practices and will hopefully help other teams understand why being safe is so important.
“Data Overload” – Highlights from the Scouting Team
The Scouting Team has been hard at work creating a new database for use in speculating other teams at the competitions. The database includes how much and where they score, what other objectives their robot accomplishes, and addition key information that the drive-team will need to know before a match starts. The team also has been training new members of the sub team to replace the seniors, Tori Cross and Dale Damis, that are leaving for college at the end of this season.

The design team has been up day and night brainstorming how best to play Rebound Rumble. Member of the team have been learning how to build each individual part of the robot on CAD (Computer Aided Design) software. They also discuss what kind of special “powers” the robot should have in order to win the competition. Keep it up Design Team!
“Its Alive… Sort of” – Highlights from the Build Team
The Build Team has begun the six-week build process by building wooden hoops to test the newly made basketball launcher used in this years game. With the practice components built, they worked on prototyping robot components to give the design team important information on what to build. Early in the design process, the Design Team passed on prints for the driving train and the build team knocked that out quickly. The build team is eagerly awaiting the designs for our ball collection and launching devices. Once they receive the designs, the team can switch into full gear and give birth to another amazing robot. Keep on Building Team!
“The Power is Within” – Highlights from the Controls and Electrical Team
The Controls and Electrical team has been thinking long and hard about the layout for the internal parts of the robot. The robot has a special place for each individual part (for example, the battery) in order for the robot to run as smooth as possible and stay within the weight requirements. Once the controls and electrical components are installed, we the controls team can begin the process of programming our creation and bring it to life.
