Oh ah! Forgot... there are some videos in there too....

I'll be posting MORE pictures tomorrow (Feb 14)

That's cuz those pictures are actually old. We have our robot working and running around now. I'll get some pictures and videos of that.

Hang tight!

Congrats!!

One question, what is the purpose of the wedge-shaped mechanism on the back?

what are most wedges used for? hehehhee

:D

Hey, does Woburn have any pictures of their robot on their site yet? I wanna see :)

I am just going to take a wild guess, and say that the wedge is used to push other robot, thus gaining traction on your robot and reducing traction on the opponent robot.

Of course I am save to assume that this wedge won't be used to tip other robots on their sides, right?

of course not. That's not the purpose of the mechanism. It's purpose isn't to disable and destroy another robot.... if you want that... go to RobotWars :D

heehee

How's everyone else's robot doing?

Pictures are coming soon :D

About the wedge... is it used as a robot lengthener?

Well, we're about 90-95% finished building it. We're still working out the details and fine turning it.

We haven't really discuessed into detail the game plans and strategies yet.... so can't say.

in one of the videos it looked like the robot grabbed onto the goal by pushing inward on 2 of the casters. Did you actually design it to grab casters???

XRaVeNX
02-14-2002, 07:40 PM
oh no. They arn't grabbing the castors....lol
That would be very hard and against the rules. Cuz u arn't allowed to have anything that goes under the goal's bottom.

The only way allowed to grab the goal is the metal pipes.... and that's what we used.

I knew it wasn't allowed. thats why I was surprised when I watched the video. I just wanted to make sure that what I thought I saw wasn't what was actually there

I just watch the video clip in another thread, and I was surprised at what the wedge shape on your robot actually do... It went under another robot, and pulled it away... At least I think that's what I saw.

I guess there got to be some teams that will be dragging other robots around... :(

No pics on the site quite yet as Justin said (we're going to release the robot slowly), but there are three pics of our patented gearbox under the thread entitled 'HexaDrive.'

By the way...that wedge is looking pretty dangerous. We may have to use the cannon on you...

Our Triple motor gear box is up on the gallery of chief delphi.. so.. go check it out.. ^.^..
Woburn introducing our 6 Motor Drive.. Thanx Ian

ooo.... 6 motor drive system.... problem is that although u have all that power, do u have enough traction? Cuz power without traction is useless, the wheels just spin. But I saw a picture of u're wheels.... looks impressive....

And what is the cannon? *background thunder noise* AHHHH!! /me runs and hides... lol

Believe you me, do we ever have traction (we need it to counteract...recoil). :D

Looking at your web site and looking at your robot moving it looks like it goes slow and looks like you do not have the traction you should have.

XRaVeNX

Well, actually the wheels by not providing "perfect" traction (i.e. no slipping whatsoever) is good. During a practice competition, we were able to beat a 6-motor drive system robot (not mentioning the robot) mainly because they had more traction and because of that, their 60amp breaker broke. Our wheels spinning actually prevents any breaker from breaking.

And oh ya, Woburn, congrats on u're robot. It looks excellent. I especially love the wheels and gearbox. They were amazing. Good luck at the Regionals!
