Computer Aided Design (CAD) Modeler
The CAD designers work out design ideas before committing to building them physically. Our team uses Autodesk Inventor software.
The programmers write the software code that controls the robot's sensing, processing, and movements. Our team uses the RobotC programming language.
Machines and assembles the robot parts.
Operates the robot on the playing field using joysticks/controllers. Drivers typically have another role as well.
Documents the progress of design ideas, including diagrams, calculations, results and lessons learned. The documenter also logs the participating and activities of each meeting and team event.
Everyone is a brainstormer, contributing to the ideas for the robot.
