We briefly met up today in order to gather our parts and design our robot, We unpackaged all of our parts to check and make sure we had all the necessary materials to build our autonomous fire fighting robot.

Some of the issues we noticed:

- The pump we bought doesn't stop water from flowing through it. That is, we need to design our robot in such a way that the output is higher than the input / reservoir.

- The tube that the pump attaches to is thick and this might make it harder to aim the hose and extinguish the fire.

- The axle on the motor was slightly too thick for the cap
