Over the past four weeks the Lake Monsters have made a lot of progress. This year's challenge is called aerial assist, which is played on a 25 x 54 foot field and is played by two alliances of three robots each. The objective of the game is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two minute and thirty second match.
During the past four weeks, the Lake Monsters have built and their catapult prototype and received positive results from testing it. The chassis is completed and they are in the process of laying out and constructing the field goals. The programming team is making a server to provide statistical analysis on scouting data and is also working on new methods of robot control using gesture technology. The electrical team is currently designing the electrical board, and the marketing team has started working on awards.
