It's funny it only happened because we broke a roller when driving on them and we're annoyed, so we thought we would beat them up a bit with the collector. Turns out it works really well.

Also the power of the 775s help, if we had a lower back panel the collector would launch the ball a good 8 feet or so at full speed.

This is probably my favorite reveal video so far. Short, action packed and showed off a lot of cool and useful features.

just make sure not to shoot it on the truss in a match, or you will never be able to score again.

Re: Spectrum 3847: Infrared Reveal

I love the intake a the way you hold the ball in, but is there a sensor on the robot that senses the ball when it comes into the robot or does the driver need to manually press a button? We are using a sensor, but I'm wondering if it is easy enough to just press a button.

We have both systems running.

The driver holds the bumper (button above the trigger on an Xbox controller) during collection. If he lets go collection stops, collection also stops when the IR range finder senses the ball. Most of the time the driver is able to get it before the ball reaches the sensor but when they are blind to the ball and 54 ft away hopefully the sensor will take over.

Our code is on github, it's by no means competition ready, we still have 3 weeks till our first competition.

Allen,
Looks like an incredible machine. I'm looking forward to taking a peek under the hood in a few weeks.

There are many details in your design that are worthy of study, in person. The video and photos are very nice but don't do Infrared justice.

Love the back panel. The voltage display is very very nice along with all of the labels.

Re: Spectrum 3847: Infrared Reveal

Very impressed with the reveal video.
This robot can do it all!

Every time I look at that intake, I think of our VEX intake rollers for this year's game Toss Up.
