Comments and General Information:

PDXBot.03 Summary:

Renamed as Eezy Fasheezy, this robot was designed and built by my brother, Kevin Jorgensen. (I did, however, wire it for him.) The robot has a history of bad luck. In its first year, the OOPic board had an unseen short; in its second year, a servo's gears broke. As a result, its speed and torque are drastically worse than they should be. It lost to the robots LandShark and Fluffy, and was eliminated from competition. Its OOPic is the same chip from Giskard.

PDXBot.02 Summary:

The night before the contest, an unseen short fried out all of the analog ports on the OOPic. Considering we had only analog sensors, this was a huge disaster. Eezy Fasheezy, in its two contests, managed to spin around blind and fall out of the ring backwards.
