Robot Progress Oct. 6th

By | October 6, 2013

It’s off to another season, and off to many new adventures! ┬áThis year’s competition (FTC Block Party) involves picking up plastic blocks from the floor, raising a flag at the edge of the field, and hanging from a bar at the end.

Building off of skills that we developed last year, we decided to fabricate our own chassis out of steel this year to improve its robustness and strength.  This new chassis design will also allow us to swap out wheels, gears, and sprockets easily by removing a few screws, and pulling off the sides.
