This is the atrium of the building our shop is in

The shop is off to the left and pretty well-equipped for making things, but less so for running robots around in circles.

I see a camera man and a boom operator to the left there. How's the documentary stuff going?

This was the practice chassis, Amit. Most people didn't stick around long enough to see the competition robot run. We'll drive that one around more on Thursday.

It's, uh, going. I'm not a fan of reality television.

The best the kids were able to manage was sub-10 seconds, but the average was probably closer to 13-15 seconds. Things will slow down some as we add weight to the drive trains and more again when we get more robots out on the "field".

Re: pic: FRC488 Running Laps

Our of curiousity, are those numbers with a mecanum frame or a more typical six-wheel frame with a lowered middle wheel? If you tested both, what was the average difference between the two?

They were getting those numbers with both our practice and competition drive trains running default code. The competition chassis is a bit harder to handle, but faster for those who can tame it as a result. The practice chassis has too much traction in the turns and slows us down.

Re: pic: FRC488 Running Laps

Have you tried casters on the front or back?

We were thinking of using them, but starting may be a bit of a problem since they don't like to always start in the front....then again, there are the ones that do....

But, if you do try it out, it might be better for some control over turns. We're going to try that out sooner or later....

anyway, we'll be sending some e-mails to you guys in Seattle to update on gathering dates.

You can use omni wheels instead of casters so you can slip for turning, and still get power forwards and backwards. It takes a bit more weight over casters because the wheels have to be powered for the effect. You could use omni's without powering them as a better alternative to casters also, as they wouldn't have to swing around to get into position.

Re: pic: FRC488 Running Laps

What was the distance that the bot was run? That is, how long was the stretch you drove it on? We were thinking about making a "lapbot" (a robot that just drives for scoring the 2points for doing a lap and maybe some herding). Is that what you guys are going for?
