Be Pro Be Proud Georgia needed a new robotics and automation display for their 50' trailer. It needed to be rugged enough for mobile use and have an average cycle time of 2 minutes. Firestorm Robotics members, with support from Cherokee Makerspace, Georgia FIRST Robotics and Automation Direct designed and built an robotic tic-tac-toe machine using industrial components.
Firestorm member Alexis Cua connects the 24v power supply, controller, and stepper drivers provided by Automation Direct so that the programmers can work on the logic. At the same time, the rest of the machine is being designed and fabricated.
