Robotics Team Wins the "Battle-O-Baltimore"!
Our robot features a six wheel all wheel drive drive train that allows us to push any other robot around. The ball collection device is a brush assemble (it looks low-tech but works like a charm) and a belt assembly that carries the basket balls up to the shooter. The shooter is essentially a version of a pitching machine that spins at up 3500 RPM but we could never figure out how to make it accurate. This was out first year in FRC, so we're off to a promising start.
That's it for FRC until January when the new game is announced and the six week build session commences. Now we switch to FTC, which are smaller but more complicated robots.
Oh and I still need to finish my terrain for Fall-In...
