The cat, who as a kitten watched the construction of the Cricket all the way from its beginnings as a pile of metal on the floor, to a fully refactored competitor inspected a new piece of machinery. This new piece of machinery, a fully functional Grizzly ATV, was donated by Yamaha to be used as a base for the second Agbot,
While the people on the team were impressed with the Grizzly’s power and suspension, the feature which impressed the cat was a very comfortable seat. The seat was an ideal spot to curl up for a cat nap, contemplate participating in the design, or supervise the testing of the Cricket. The Cricket was just starting test runs to validate field worthiness.
The development arc of the second agbot is currently planned using lessons learned from the Cricket development arc. The new development arc for the second Agbot, for what it is worth, involves the same team of cats.
