Darn NASA people and their ideas
Actually, my bet is a 116 student came up with it.
Dave, this is great stuff. I've been collecting ideas for a new (2006) rookie team at my school. This puppy is going on the list. My only question is, Can your robot place tetras and deliver Krispy Kremes to team mentors in autonomous mode?

I would love to know how that works out... especially with the heat issue...

Does look like you got that covered, what a neat way to make sure aluminum filings dont get in the victors!

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

When I see stuff like that, sometimes I say, "That's BRILLIANT, why didn't I think of that?"

But I never like the answer.

I guess we'll just have to think of a brilliant design like that for next year. Thank you for sharing the idea... it really is a good one.

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

Looks great! We tried one of those this year, but unfortunately it was built and designed by a couple of freshmen. Needless to say, it wasn't the most beautiful thing I've seen. It didn't even fit into our frame. We were going to call it the Brain Box. (I think it's pretty catchy ) Good luck and I hope to see ya guys at nats.

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

We suspected some Junkin brother spycraft when we saw that guy. Lucien hasn't talked yet, but a few more turns of the thumbscrews oughta do it.

I'll have to post pics of our monstrosity of a controls box when I remember my camera. It unfolds similarly, but we got the bright idea of putting an accumulator, 4 solenoids, and a mess o' hoses in there too. It ain't pretty.

Do you have a mirror or something to be able to see the RC lights? Our resident inspector complained and complained about not being able to see ours until we slid the brain forward an inch.

Edit - Pics:

We've allotted an hour on Thursday for our inspection.

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

That is one nice box. We tried folding some items in last year to protect the main rc board but the inspectors made us turn the board to the outside so they could see the lights by just looking down at the robot. Have you run into this same problem before?

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

Very impressive dave,
I myself had attempted something like this several years ago and failed miserably and have considered it several times since then, you however have suceeded!

Kudos to you sir!

One question as brought up in the above post, how easy is it to see the lights on the RC and Victors?

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

Wow! Awesome idea. Good way to keep bits of metal out...though if it does get in it'll get in everything.

How much does it weigh though? and how does it mount to the robot?

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

This is similar to what we (Team 638) have done the last two years, though done better than we did.

Two years ago I built and designed theitegrated control box that won Leadership in Control at the VCU regional. Last year we were able to move to shelves so the control box itself could come apart into seperate pieces.

Our goal for this year has been to actually drop in the control box, much like a stick of RAM in a computer and are nearing that goal. By dropping in we can eliminate the nasty plug-in blocks that are still present in your design,

I'll see if I can post a pic in the next couple of days, or give us a visit at the VCU regional, it should be great.

Thumbs up Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System


That...is...beautiful!!!!

What type of wire connectors are those on the outside of the box? Those look awesome! It will solve a ton of problems on our robot....

One question though, how are you able to see the lights on the victors and the RC while the box is in your robot?

Whoever built that... You are my new hero!

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

this box brings me to tears... I love it so much.

I wanted to make a box similar to this one this year. But had to settle for just a flat panel instead because of space issues.

Great work!!!

Re: pic: Team 116 Modular Control System

I think people missed the point raise earlier.
Can you see the blinking lights?
You may not pass inspection unless the inspector can see them....

It is an awesome design though.
