2010 FTC #2939 CHUM

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!

2010 FTC #3231 Syzygy

Autonomous Mode: Score 5 Batons in the stationary goal and then cross go to the dispensing side of the field via the cliff/mountain

Chassis Overview: Tank Drive; 8 wheel drive; front 2 and back 2 wheels raised by an 1/8’’ for maneuverability; 4 motors devoted to drive

Lifter: 6:1 ratio lifts rolling goals allowing robot to maintain maneuverability required to balance; due to triangular shape of lifter roling goals can be quickly located and lifted.

2010 FTC #4041 Single Ladies

Chassis: 6-wheel chassis with two motors driven by gears, rear omni wheels, rolling goal lifter on front


Autonomous Mode: Travel to other side of field via the bridge
