from MIT's Cogshop FAQ: "Robotics requires a very robust background (or, alternatively, a person with just about any background can work in robotics). There are elements of computer science, mechanical engineering, cognitive science, and lots of mathematics in the work that we do. There's also a great deal of "hacking" involved. "Hacking" is the art of taking something apart, breaking it, putting it back together with improvements, and then acting like you knew what you were doing all along."

4) Do you have a very special thing on your robot, some cool design or whatnot? and If so what is it. Please describe it.

After the first day of practice on Thursday at PNWR, we found out our winch motor could get backdriven and let out robot glide down to the floor from the hook. So we used a dremel and hacksaw and created notches on our winch drum and created a ratchet using a servo, a paper clip, and a randomly shaped piece of scrap metal.

Other information
Speed (fps)
after increasing the gear ration
6 fps in low 12 fps in high

Robustness (1-10) (10 being highest)
10. our robot has multiple break away joints in all critical components. our robot will not break, it will simply bend

Agility (1-10)
10 six wheel drive lets us spin on a dime

During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way? yes. our partners have the annoying tendencies to either a) not move at all, b)get disabled 10 seconds into a match, or c) be so horrible that the only thing they are good at is getting in our way. i realize that not every time has the ability to make an outstanding robot, and everyone has a match or two with an inferior partner, but we seem to have an inordinately large number of matches with them. This was more true at our NJ regional than it was at UTC.

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way?
in NJ we broke down a lot, but at UTC we never let our teammates down

Where were you seeded before the finals round started (at the end of the qualification matches?) 2nd place at UTC.

Did you win any awards during the competition (spirit, leadership in control, etc.?)
we won the regional (UTC)

Re: 2004 Survey

1)Team Name Sie-H20-Bots (See-Hoe-Bots)
2)Team Number 237

3)How many people on the team? ~40 - ~20 Students ~20 Adults - more or less

4)How many guys? Probably about 25 (HS Students and Adults)
5)How Many girls? Probably about 15 (HS Students and Adults)
6)What does everyone do- Everybody fundraises and then everyone is on different sub teams as well. IE: Mechanical, Electrical, etc.

Design Questions
1) How long does it take to design various things on your robot (hours, days) 1 or 2 days at the most - But that is only after 2 days of intense learning of the game inside and out and figuring out what we want to do to be competitive in the said game.
Function over form!

2) Do you prototype first? To some extent. We use some prototyping to decide on what system we want to do. IE: Arms for grabbing balls, Chassis type - More function over form.
3) How many people design things? about 5 maybe, it depends.

4) How many people build things? Everyone on the mechanical team, so about 10

5) How many hours a day do people put in towards the robot? We meet oficially 4 hours each weekday during the build season, and some use more, some use less time cause of other commitments

6) Do you get professional engineers to help your team, or is it all teachers and students? Engineers, Machinists, Parents, Teachers and other supporters

Strategy Questions
1) How much experience do your drivers have? (years) 1 great year. Both drivers were rookies in the 2004 season, and we did great this year.

2) How much experience did your drivers get with the robot? As much as we could, almost a full week before shipping (thanks to the extended deadline this year), and of course all the practice time and matches during robotic events.

3) Do you design to do everything well, or do you design to do one specific task extraordinarily?
One specific task extrodinarily.

4) Do you have a very special thing on your robot, some cool design or whatnot? and If so what is it. Please describe it.
We Climb the steps with 6 wheel drive and 2 speed tranny and hang on the bar and defend with our unique shimmy device that allowed us to transvers across the bar and defend it.
We had other back-up systems, but because of weight issues, we left them off.

5) How much work did you put into the autonomous mode? The first week or so of building deciding what we wanted to do in autonomous. about 2 days before shipping testing it with the robot and all 6 weeks developing and learning the language structure.

6) What does your autonomous do? It was supposed to knock off the ball from the tee if we wanted, but we ony got that to work sucessfully a couple times during competition, so we changed it to just line up to the platform for our drivers to climb it in driver control mode.
It is all dead-reckoning based BTW.

Other information
Speed (fps) 13fps in high, 4fps in low 2 speed gearbox borrowed and modified a little bit from Team 116

Robustness (1-10) (10 being highest)
9 - We had no major system problems this year.. A first for us!! Yay!! But were prone to tipping in the beginning, but we fixed that.. (I hope)

Agility (1-10)
7 - We can push pretty hard in low, and make good speed in high, but we can't turn on a dime cause of our chassis design, but oh well..


During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way?
Once in a while, but that always happens, it's the luck of the draw in a random alliance pairing.

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way?
Probably, we can't always anticipate every move, but we did pretty good none-the-less.

Where were you seeded before the finals round started (at the end of the qualification matches?) NJ regional - 1st with an undefeated record
CT/UTC Regional - 6th place Nationals - 11th place, but got bumped to 8th and was an alliance captain in the finals and made it to the semi's! w00t!
Beantown Blitz - 30 out of 33.. Ouch..

Did you win any awards during the competition (spirit, leadership in control, etc.?) 2004 - NJ Regional - GM Industrial Design Award and Regional winner and a MOE team award for Gracious Professionalism, An award for an extraordinary gadget from RAGE Robotics Team 173. - CT/UTC Regional: Motorola Quality Award - Nationals: Team award from The Martians team 494
As for the other years, we have won other awards, but I'll leave those out, cause I'm guessing you just mean this year.

Personal Info

What is your name? Elgin Clock

Age? 24

Re: 2004 Survey

Team Name: Woburn Robotics.

Team Number: 188.

Number of people: 19 (29 with graduate and teacher mentors).

Male: 10; note I am the only grade 12 male on the team, (or Senior as you Americans like to say)

Female: 9.

What everyone does: This could answer that. It's what everyone officially does, though there's a lot of crossing over.

Time to design various things on robot: About two days per function, but this is involved with prototyping; once we decide what to do, design is prototyping.

Prototyping: Heck yeah. Very little CAD either.

People who design things: A very small minority, should be bigger.

People who build things
: Often the same minority, with one or two who can be instucted to do things. This should be much bigger, at least 12.

Hours per day people put in toward the robot: On average 2, but this ranges from about 1 hour to 6 hours. Note that people might be around or working on something different and not count toward this number.

Mentor makeup: On occasion we get some drop-ins from helpful engineers, but it's mainly teacher mentors, graduates, and students.

Driver experience: As driver this year, I already could drive a robot well and practised a bit on an old one in build. I've also been (the best) human player before so the whole drive team aura wasn't new. The operator didn't have any experience but didn't really need much.

Experience on the robot: Barely any going into Pittsburgh because of delays; we try to have three to five days of solid driving (which never happened this year), but next year we will choose a drive team very early and have them practice whether or not the robot's done.

Design methodology: Generally we try to design one specific function really well and work off of that strength. This year we made an everythingbot, and it paid off (you'd think we'd win a regional).

Coolness on robot: I got your coolness right here.

Work on auto mode: A whole lot of work was done in this area and a lot of learning. Our insanely sophisticated guidance system didn't work because (among other things) the IR beacon was weak.

Autonomous: We use dead reckoning/timing to get around now. A few very simple programs.

Speed: 17fps

Robustness: 8 (5 is average)

Agility
: 7 (5 is average)

During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way?
Yes ("OMG!!!11one," says the typically goodie forumgoer, "that's not GP!"), but we're guilty of it too, as are you, as are you. Nobody is angry because that's how it goes. I can just see people reading into this statement too much.

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way?
In at least three matches I can think of right now, one of which we won. Three matches is good in anyone's book I think. By the way, mechanical failure counts as letting down in my eyes, in addition to drive team error.

Where were you seeded before the finals round started?
Top 8 in Archimedes and Canadian, but not so good in Pittsburgh.

Did you win any awards during the competition?
Yeah.
*Sportsmanship, two individual awards for mentors (WFA, VOY), and Website Design at the Canadian Regional.
*Website Design at Pittsburgh.
*Website Design at Championships (booyeah).

What is your name?
Jonathan Lall

Age?
17

How long have you been on the team?
3 years, and counting.

What was your role on the team?
This year I was President, Driver, and Webmaster. The Franchise.
"Jonathan Lall is the Chosen One; the prodigal brother who will bring balance to Woburn Robotics." -former team member in my first year.

Re: 2004 Survey

1)Team Name: Killer Bees

2)Team Number: 33

3)How many people on the team? 30

4)How many guys? 25

5)How Many girls? 5

6)What does everyone do? There are 3 groups, CAD, PR, and Build


Design Questions
1) How long does it take to design various things on your robot (hours, days) We design it all throughout the build period, but the preliminary design work takes about a week.

2) Do you prototype first? Yes

3) How many people design things? There are 3 goups, each with an adult mentor that "guides" the students, but everyone has a say. This year the groups were chassis, Ball-O-Fier, and hanging arm (which never went on). Last year they were Chassis, Box Manipulator Claw, and Arm.

4) How many people build things? Every student on the build team, which is about 20. Our robot is pretty much entirely student built.

5) How many hours a day do people put in towards the robot? Every team member is required to be at all meetings, which is about 16 hours per week. Some people like myself go more during crunch time.

6) Do you get professional engineers to help your team, or is it all teachers and students? Engineers


Strategy Questions

1) How much experience do your drivers have? (years) This year and all of the offseason events last year

2) How much experience did your drivers get with the robot? 3 weeks for the chassis, a few days with most of the robot, no time with the actual competition configuration. Thereforem the driver had a lot of practice, the operator (me) had to figure it all out at the competition.

3) Do you design to do everything well, or do you design to do one specific task extraordinarily?
Last year we tried to do everything well and we weren't so great, so this year we focused on ball handling and hanging. We were awesome at both, but we had to sacrafice the good hanging arm for something that was so-so. The other year we were REALLY good, 2001, we did one thing well, which was handling goals. Although we did everything in 2002 and won a regional. I guess it all depends on the game. I'll stop, I'm rambling.

4) Do you have a very special thing on your robot, some cool design or whatnot? and If so what is it. Please describe it.
4 speed automatic transmission that weighs about 2 pounds, pop down casters converting it to 2wd for turning on a dime, Stepping Chassis, Pop out ball ingestion system, it's all special!

5) How much work did you put into the autonomous mode? We measured the wheel counts during build season and that's it. All of the autonomous coding was done after shipping, and it all works. That's all Jim (DaimlerChrysler programmer/engineer) and Kevin (prodigy) right there, they're awesome

6) What does your autonomous do? Knock down the first, second, or both balls then reverse or drive under the ball dump


Other information
Speed (fps) 12 in high, about 6 in low

Robustness (1-10) 9.5

Agility (1-10) 10 due to the pop down castors in the back making it 2wd.


During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way? Which competition?

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way? At nationals I feel we did a bit, and at Detroit we definately did by having our drive fail.

Where were you seeded before the finals round started (at the end of the qualification matches?)
VCU: 4th
Detroit: 3rd
Canada: 17th?
Archimedes: 5th

Did you win any awards during the competition (spirit, leadership in control, etc.?)
NASA/VCU Regional:
-Champions
-Xerox Creativity award
Detroit Regional:
-Leadership in Controls award
Canada Regional:
-Champions
-Driving tomorrow's technology award
-Industrial Design award
National Championship:
-Driving tomorrow's technology award

Personal Info

What is your name? Paul Huston

Age? 18

How long have you been on the team? this was my second year

What was your role on the team? Build: Ball-O-Fier team, pneumatics guy, and operator

That was fun!

Re: 2004 Survey

1)Team Name: d5robotics

2)Team Number 1293

3)How many people on the team? 30ish

4)How many guys? 27ish

5)How Many girls? 3

6)What does everyone do? Everything--this particular year, we weren't too particularly organized, although we had more build-oriented people and fundraising-oriented people.

Design Questions
1) How long does it take to design various things on your robot (hours, days) We usually haggle over it for a few hours, maybe over a day or two, before it hits.

2) Do you prototype first? Not this year.

3) How many people design things? I recall at least ten warm bodies designing this or that.

4) How many people build things? Nearly everyone built something--more of the building fell onto about five or six folks.

5) How many hours a day do people put in towards the robot? Two hours on a Tuesday night, plus all day saturday--about ten hours a week this year.

6) Do you get professional engineers to help your team, or is it all teachers and students? We've got two.

Strategy Questions

1) How much experience do your drivers have? (years) 0

2) How much experience did your drivers get with the robot? Functionally 0.

3) Do you design to do everything well, or do you design to do one specific task extraordinarily? One task extraordinarily--or so we thought.

4) Do you have a very special thing on your robot, some cool design or whatnot? and If so what is it. Please describe it. If I was fond of one thing on our robot, it would be our numbers. The Thursday at Palmetto, our fundraising/artsy coach didn't have the numbers that we'd done up all nice-like. So we did them in electrical tape. And it worked.

5) How much work did you put into the autonomous mode? Enough to get it just shy of hitting the ball.

6) What does your autonomous do? Get to the ten-point ball--whether it hits or not tends to be an issue of aim.


Other information
Speed (fps) Slow--like four to six. (We had window motors.)

Robustness (1-10) (10 being highest) 11. We were taking some serious checks in the sides from other robots, and we didn't have a ding.

Agility (1-10) 7. We couldn't screech out of somewhere, but we could move.

During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way? Not that I saw.

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way? We rocked as hard as we could--there was little to nothing else we could've done during the regional.

Where were you seeded before the finals round started (at the end of the qualification matches?) 27/42

Did you win any awards during the competition (spirit, leadership in control, etc.?) None.

Personal Info

What is your name? William Leverette

Age? 18, 17 during the season.

How long have you been on the team? 1 year

What was your role on the team? Miscellaneous student, fumble-through-the-dark scout, robot tackling dummy, occasional fabricator, and off-season pesterer.

Agility (1-10)1.3. we had 4wheels/2wheel drive with pop down casters... they weren't very secure.. and 12.5in pneumatic wheels on 4 corners isnt the best layout... especially if your wheelbase is longer than width... as ours was. we could turn,,, but barely

During the competition, did you feel that your alliance partner let your team down in some way? ....once. we were promised a hang, but they didnt hang... we would have won if they did.

Did you let your alliance partner down in any way? probably when our plow's beaded jumprope snapped... we sprayed beads all over the field...and couldnt plow balls anymore..
