Best Autonomous

Hey Every One,
Unfortunately This years Autonomous Wasn't important enough for most of the teams to spend time on it, But it was the Most fun challenge for me.
so If you wanted to give an award to the best autonomous robot, what team would you give it to?

Re: Best Autonomous

Of the teams I actually saw in person: 1730 had the best autonomous mode.

How about 190 in 2004?

...wait...

Re: Best Autonomous

I'd have to say from watching the webcast and the clip here, 340. That was a nice auto correct.

1730 had one of the best autonomous modes I saw this year. Along the lines of them were 910 and 233. All three of them tracked the light via the camera and were very consistent in scoring.

330 also had a very good auto but I think they dead reckoned theirs.

Re: Best Autonomous

1730 had a great auto mode; I didn't get to watch them at the Championships, but I know it was doing well at Boilermaker.

I would have to say that 910's autonomous was accurate and consistent. During practice they scored at least twice and during matches at least four times, if not, more. I loved watching theirs though, because their arm was made to flip over the robot, and that's how they scored in autonomous. It was amazing to watch.

1114 also had a very nice autonomous mode. It was realiable and scored at least five times during matches. (It might have been more, since I was in the pits during the rest of the elimination, quarter, and semi finals matches.)

Other notables from Curie are: 1510, 365, 2046, and 716.

1001 also scored a couple times in auto.

2054 and 558 scored once or twice during practice as well, but I don't believe they scored in autonomous during qualifying.

Re: Best Autonomous

1114 and 1902's worked almost all the time. Watch the 1114+67 combo at GLR, it was cool.

2056 had a nice one that went across the field to score, but it never actually scored, so---

I dont know. There were alot of consistent autonomous scorers.

Re: Best Autonomous

I say 39,correct me if I'm wrong but, I believe they used the camera so they scored almost every time

Re: Best Autonomous

One thing I noticed this year was that there wasn't a lot of autonomous, but once a team got it working they tended to keep it working for the rest of the season. Most of the teams I saw score in autonomous were pretty consistent, atleast from what I saw. I have to agree with the comments on 1114. They had a nice bot and autonomous was no exception.

I also liked 48's defense autonomous, along with a few other teams that had effective defensive autonomous modes. I'm surprised more teams didn't do something like them.

Kudos to them and all the other teams that managed to get an autonomous mode working.

Thanks for the comments on our autonomous. Our two coders were almost always working on it, whenever they had a chance. The way they worked you might think they themselves were programmed to simply write code and compile it. Unfortunately during the finals on Einstein, and to a lesser degree on the Curie elimination matches, the camera wasn't fully synced to the field and once it got close to the rack it got confused by the lights above it. Other then that it was a beautiful thing.

Autonomous mode in general is really something to watch, especially when you are on the field and can see for yourself that no one is touching the controls. That feeling is something that would probably be hard for a non-robotics person to understand.

1114. Watching 1114 was like watching magic. It worked every time I saw them.

Re: Best Autonomous

One of the most consistent robots I saw all year was 1124, who scored almost every time on the close side, and although I don't think they ran it on the field, were able to go accross the field while practicing.

I was also impressed by 195, who developed their auto mode after UTC, and before Nationals, although I don't know how it did.

Yep. Just point and shoot and hope you guess right on where the rack will be. (We often missed, though we were close most of the time.)

67, 1114, 910, 1902, 368, the list goes on. I think if it scored a keeper, it wins. (Then again, I'm more mechanical than programming.)

Re: Best Autonomous

233 anyone? They were the only team I saw score in auto on the top spider leg. They did it almost every time in the Archamedies eliminations, yet missed pretty much every time on Einstein. I think something was wrong with the lights on Einstein though, because 1902 missed pretty much every time as well, and if anyone should be hitting it in auto, its 1902. Did anyone else notice the auto misses on Einstein?
