[Ranger] Modifications for International Competition

Post by cleblanc » Sun May 12, 2019 11:31 am

Our Ranger team won at regionals and will be attending the international competition.

We have a few questions:

1. Are there restrictions as to what can be updated/improved on the ROV?

2. Are we allowed to update our documentation (Due May 23rd) from what we submitted at Regionals?

3. I understand from the manual that power will be Isolated Power Supplies. To make sure we understand what is meant by this terminology, does this mean a continuous source of power that will not drain like a battery? (we had a misunderstanding about power terminology at regionals so please excuse the possibly unnecessary question)

You may upgrade / improve your ROV between your regional competition and the international competition.

You may update your documentation as needed. Hopefully your regional coordinator returned your score sheets to you so you can find areas for improvement.

At the international (RANGER) you will plug into a Powerwerx Power supply. This will provide a constant 14.1 volts DC.

Good luck.
