Dueling projects!

Somehow we've ended up with two projects brewing at once in Robotics I. The first one is to improve upon the bumper bot so that the back bumper (and perhaps the front one as well?) is more compact and curves around the sides of the bot, to improve behavior when the bot is cornered and minimize the back-and-forthing that happens in that condition.

The other project is to build a bot that successfully navigates across the arena, gets a wooden block approximately 3.5"H x 3.5"W x 2"D, and bring it back to the starting zone. This will be accomplished using motor encoders to move and a touch sensor to detect the block. Movies to follow shortly...
