Re: pic: 1726 modular robot

We used a very similar system to attach the lifts to our robot last season from necessity. It required a lot of effort and force to reset them, so we opted instead to make them quickly removable. It was probably the single best feature of our robot.

This season, we're taking a similar approach. Because the structure above our drive train is large and covers almost everything, we've made it removable again. Additionally, the most exposed parts of our manipulator are similarly attached. If they become damaged, we can replace them in about 15 seconds.

We frequently stored our robot in our pit in pieces. It gave us a lot more room to work with. Be warned that if you do anything similar, 75% of the people walking through the pit -- other teams included -- will think your robot is broken. That was a bigger problem for us last year than we ever expected.

Looks great 222 is planning on doing the same with our mechanism....we even got pins with tethers on them so team members can't put them in their pockets and walk away

So does this mean that you have more than one manipulator? Sweet...

Doubt it. It costs too much weight to do two, though you can if you want to. (The second manipulator, weighed with the first one on the robot, can't cause the robot to break the weight limit.)

Re: pic: 1726 modular robot

Thanks Fredi! The build is going pretty well, but kind of slow because we're thinking too much and it slows down work. But we did get the new chassis driveable tonight, and should have it all working tomorrow. Hope to see you at Duel in the Desert, as a spectator--we can't make it into a field trip so the robot will stay home again.

Re: pic: 1726 modular robot

I doubt it, that's a US Government scale, used by the troops to weigh in...so it's way too official! sorry.

(edit: also we'll be in my wife's Prowler, so it wouldn't fit anyways)

Re: pic: 1726 modular robot

It's looking really nice. The thinking might be slowing you down, but it has resulted in a very elegant robot with clean lines. I hope we get a chance to see it perform this year... because if that happens we'll be seeing each other in Atlanta!
