Along with two team members, we designed and tested a 100-lb robot for participation in the FIRST Robotics Competition, an international high school and college-level robotics competition. Specifically, I led development on the intake and hopper subsystems: I CADed, machined, and assembled wood prototypes, designed parts (aluminum mounts and gearbox plates) with ease of manufacturing in mind, iterated based on testing feedback, and integrated the hopper frame with other subsystems.
Technologies: CAD (Onshape, Fusion 360), machining (mill, lathe, CNC router), prototyping, design for manufacturing
