Tour of the Robot
Theory 7 - Identifying Electrical Components
In the first step of “Tour of the Robot”, apprentice electrical members will learn to identify the names of the different components found on the robot. Even just the ability to recognize a PDB or a PCB from each other, for instance, is a great start to a general understanding of how the robot functions electrically.
Theory 8 - Identifying the Purpose of Electrical Components
In the second step of “Tour of the Robot”, apprentice electrical members will learn what each of the components is for. After this step, students should be able to give a brief description of why a component is on the robot - both its name and its function as part of the larger electrical system.
