What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

What team has the most different or innovative design you have ever seen? Most powerful arm? Coolest drive train? I'm interested to see what's out there.

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

Most innovative Drain Train - 357 Royal Assault - Those Mecanum (sp?) Wheels are sweet. They were out pit neighbors so I had plenty of time to observe.

Best Tetra Grabber - 188 Blizzard - That's one nifty tetra grabber they have. They can pick up two (maybe three) at a time and still drop only one.

Best Autonomous and best overall strategy/robot design - 365 MOE - They could cap the center goal in the home row AND knock off a hanging tetra all in the 15 seconds. And I thought their coach was really cool too.

(This one is a bit (a lot) biased)
Highest Robot with low CG - 226 Hammerheads - We have no troubles with the center goal, and can extend over 12 feets total. Even if we were to start to tip over, our chassis is so low to the groud that it's like a built in wheelie bar.

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

At our Regional, lowest Ground Clearance was 980, 1/8" or less. Plus their arm could rotate a full 360 and had a revolving grabber at the end that could swing sideways into and out of tetras.

Most interesting strategic design was 842, they were all pushing, couldn't even pick up a tetra, but they had pushing power beyond all imagining and had brake panels they could lock onto their wheels. Finished ranked #3 seed despite their inability to score.

Another biased opinion, but our arm is a bit weird, it uses a pulley, a screw drive, and a pneumatic piston to reach a maximum height of 15-16 feet. The best part is we can hang a tetra on our arm from that height and still stay on our back 4 wheels (we have a 6-wheel rocking design).

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

190 has the coolest drivetrain ever! It can drive in any direction by just pushing the joystick. It's kind of hard to explain so I'll see if I can find a picture somewheres.

It's the same in concept as the picture posted earlier of 357's drive.

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

I am also bias but i think that 1549's desigh is the most innofative simply by applying the effectiveness of our bot devided by the complexity. Our lift is a nested ladder and out gripper is a custom cut aluminum piece. Thats it. Stock drive train.

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

hey everyone! this is ben from team 281 in greenville SC. we just won the daluth, GA regional with a really cool robot! check this out. we went with a 6 wheeled design with 4 small wheels and two big ones in the middle (the axels are higher so everything is level). it turns on a dime, and with a slanted base made from aluminum angle, we are incredibly light, and had no trouble with weight this year. even so, we never lost a pushing match! also, we have this really cool arm that extends at the beginning of every match and stays that way. its hard to explain, but at the beginning the robot expands to a 11 foot high, right triangle. this allows us to cap with incredible accuracy. to go up and down the mast, we use a system that uses acorn nuts to physically grab the mast and go up (avoiding belts or chains). it works amazingly! check out the upcoming pictures and movies at www.entech281.com good luck to everyone!
Ben

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

I have to agree with JVN that 173 has the best arm that I have seen so far. And I am waiting for a current team 116 member to post inforamtion/pictures about their drivetrain past the simple teasers that Dave posted. Hopefully they will post some pictures after Annapolis this weekend, along with some information on how well it worked.

I think that a cool design is the MAK team's lateral moving robot

Re: What's the most innovative/different design you've seen?

Wow, I am in absolute shock that no one has mentioned HOT's machine. Maybe I'm biased, but that thing just dominated at GLR. The arm (forklift style) was no doubt the best in the competition, I felt that they employed some of the best strategy and the drivers were fantastic under pressure. Go 67!
