Robot rights itself

Has anyone seen a robot playing Power Up tip over and then right itself? 1922 OzRam just did it at an off season event, Mayhem in Merrimack.

No robot self-righting will beat 330 on Einstein.

Re: Robot rights itself

In power up? No. However, one of the best matches I have ever seen in person was when 330 was able to right themselves on Einstein in 2016. I wish we could've seen some of this in Powerup, but I feel like the common design this year (elevator bot) wouldn't allow for it.

1712 was smooth with it too. Looks like something they practiced every day in driver training.

That was the play of the day! The reactions are awesome, too. You can see the operator's reaction when they fall and then when he gets them back up. The crowd reaction is great, too.

Re: Robot rights itself

While I appreciate seeing a robot that can self-right, my personal opinion is that if you built a robot that needs to be able to self-right, then you built a robot that's too top-heavy.

Self righting is nice to watch, but it's still lost time during the match. Far better to have a robot that never tips than one that self-rights.


Now obviously this is different if the robot tips due to external forces (IE, other robots), but there's no excuse if the robot tips simply from it's own driving.

Re: Robot rights itself

Not self-righting, but another bot lifting it back up after falling over the rail in auto.

Houston - Turing - Semi 1 Match 2
3512 falls over during auto with a good portion of the bot outside of the border (thankfully not hitting anything(body)). 1102 tries to lift them up first and doesn't seem to have the torque. 2231 then comes over and does the job. 3512's climb fork getting prematurely deployed sucked in that they were now well outside perimeter.

Re: Robot rights itself

In 2010, we couldn't fall over....

Which is to say, our CG was sufficiently centered and our bumpers so high in the air that if we fell over, we'd rock back to our feet like an old Weeble toy.

To this day, we claim it was intentional!

Re: Robot rights itself

Our intake was strong enough to push our robot back into position, and we did it in Qual Match 78.
It's shown in our year review video right here!
To be honest we had never tried to do that, and never tested it, and we did bend the pneumatic piston, but it worked for the rest of the match so no complaints here!

Meanwhile 86 designed a robot that year which intentionally fell over.

You'd have to ask them about their design philosophy to be certain. By if memory serves, they usually got over the bump on the first try, but the weight distribution meant they would flip over on the way back down. So they had this system to immediately tumble right side up again. Was certainly fun to watch.
