Today’s Tests

Bump crossing tests – CG is important and braking hard is bad

Low CG and CG at the front of you robot handles the bumps better. Also this chassis has pneumatic tires.

Robots that inspired us today 

2009 – 67 (Multi ball shooter)
2012 – 48, 341 (Photo Gallery), 548 & 330 (shooter on a pivot)
2013 – 33(Frisbee path), 987 (gas springs on climber), 1986 (climber)
2014 – 2590 (ratchet)
2017 – 319 (ratchet)
2019 – 148 (elevator bearing blocks)

Sketch of the Day

Goals have the intake behind the shooter and enough room to hold 5 balls. Intake would be able to bring two balls up on to our robot at a time, those two balls would then funnel into a single file line.
