Our robot’s golden power is our 4 bar linkage. It is composed of 4 tetrix channels that moves up and down and can collect batons from the dispensers. We also have our chassis built in a concave shape so that we can go over the bump. Finally, we can dispense batons to the side into the rolling goals!
