162A Winter Reveal


#1

Team 162A is proud to present our winter robot!

Using V5 it features:
1 motor flywheel
1 motor intake
1 motor indexer
1 motor cap flipper
4 motor drivetrain

I like it! Looks like a really powerful flywheel. What’s the firing rate like? Can your I take flip caps?

It is geared 5:1 turbo so it spins at 3000rpm. It recovers very fast but I haven’t actually timed the rate yet. And the intake can flip caps, see the absolute beginning of the reveal

Do they have different uses?

The move at the end there - with the descore-er hitting the middle flag - just wanted to remind you that that is illegal. You probably already know and were just doing it for the video, but in case you didn’t, you now do.


#6

Ya. With two vision sensors you can triangulate and locate things really well.


#11

@callen very true, vision sensors are op
