This robot is a culmination of 2 years of FRC and VEX experience, and is a collaboration with myself, and a Sophomore programmer. Additionally, we followed the idea of thinking outside of what our team normally does, which involves not building defense robots and building a robot which does not have to rely on alliance partners.
The whole plan is that in Auto, we grab the two closest opposing mobile goals, then try to grab a third, then park in front of the human player loading station, with 3 out of the 4 mobile goals inside the robot and let our partner score our mobile goals.
Will it be Worlds viable? Most likely not, as we only go to local CT events, as we focus on FRC more than vex.
Does it completely rely on our alliance partners to score points for us? Yes.
There are some things missing, such as two extra drive motors for the front, two side walls that extend out forward that will help capture a third mobile goal, a linear door on the front of the robot to contain the 2 mobile goals inside of it, and a brake on the robot to prevent it from being moved at the back. This is because Inventor does not like linear slides and constraining them.
Also, I expect the team to add more structure to the robot for things like the electrical and the linear components. And yes, there are some points where some things need to be cut, such as the metal that the Omni's rub against and the sprocket sides.
All motors are High Torque motors.
