So I’ve been thinking and despite pneumatics having been largely dismissed because of the 6 motor limit I think they might actually be a viable strategy this season. Here’s a few uses I’ve thought of:
Pneumatic two bar for complex tray stacker
Pneumatic tilter combined with a pneumatic claw on the tray to stabilize/pick up existing stacks
Pneumatic assists for lift bots that want to lift a lot of cubes.
And my personal favorite: pneumatically deployable wall
I was also thinking, to combat the air shortages in a match, you could code the controller to show approximately how many actuations are left. Anyways, what do you all think? Are pneumatics a viable strategy this season?
