Re: The Pink Team 3 Tube Autonomous

I'm hoping this year is a big WARNING sign to the GDC. Give teams 20 seconds for autonomus ! They can do really amazing things

I thought the left offset was intentional to avoid the pegs (since you loaded the original tube that way). Orienting the tube to the rack is obviously a big advantage in setup and limiting turns (robots like 40's Pinky and 987 have shown this). Has it ever missed to dead center on the tube and still worked? Overall, it should be pretty easy to tune the distances of the straight sections, assuming the angled backup isn't too long (hits the tube before the turn).

Again, great job! Truly amazing.

And that is why 1511 hardly EVER uses encoders any more >_< at any given point in time, encoders tend to jump ship for us =\

I'm so sad we never got to see this at DC!

Nice job, good luck at Champs!

Encoders worked fine for us and never gave out except for one out of four. We could not get one encoder working that tracked the left side of the drive-train but it didn't hurt us too much.

Hmmm. I gotta see it in a match.

Great job guys. I didn't think we would see this until IRI. This is the perfect architectur of bot to execute this move. Very impressive.

Oh yeah got the fischer price on there now!

And btw the tube is offset so we don't sideswipe the second tube that lays on the ground as we drive out. We will adjust it to grab the next two in the center. The new scoring sequence doesnt hit the pegs.

My guess is -- it won't be necessary in IRI.

At Champs, I assume they will use a two tube variant in qualification makes.

I would be shocked if this auto alone does not put them in the 3rd seed or better.
