The Challenges

Custom Printed Circuit Boards

One thing that has cropped up each year with our robot has been wiring issues. This comes about due to the modular nature of our bot.

We can swap modules based on the challenge we are doing. This has normally led to needing to swap wires around in a very cramped space.

This year the team have decided to replace as much of the wiering as possible with custom made Printed Circuit Boards (or PCB’s).

The boards needed some of the components surface Mounted! Keith worked his magic and with the small components mounted we are ready to test them out!
