Well, 2020 has been an interesting year to say the least. We’ve seen everything from a Global Pandemic to Flying Grain-silos.
We wanted to end off this year with something good, so we decided to make a reveal video of our current bot, “Opportunity”.
600rpm Shooter (1200 Front, 600 Back) (Upper Rollers)
600rpm Indexer / Sorter (1200 Bottom, 800 Middle, 600 Back) (Lower Rollers)
600rpm Intakes (900 Front, 600 Back)
200rpm 3.25" X Drivebase
Line Sensors to detect Ball Positions,
Optical Sensor to detect Ball Color.
Combine that info with a big of magic, mountain dew, and headaches, and you have Auto Indexing & Sorting
3 wheel Odometry using Rotation Sensors + 2.75" Omnis
Robot built & programmed by
Design inspiration from
Odometry Math - 5225A “Pilons”
We didn’t do this all on our own though, so here’s a special thank you to everyone in both the Short Circuit, and Apex Alliances for being there to bounce ideas off of.
See you at Worlds with “Curiosity” (and / or “Perseverance”)
