You can dream all you want, but after my Tigers get in, you're going to have to fight Oakland.

All kidding aside, this is awesome. I just finished listening to the 1114 EWCP Podcast from a few years ago.

Re: Team 1114: Simbot Seminar Series

I'd be very interested in a seminar on mechanical assemblies, arms in particular. (Programming aspect would also be nice)

I love your seminars and look forward to listening to these!

I'll vote for this too. It's been a whole since we've had an arm game. I've got a hunch...

Some teams used a fusion of an arm and a claw this year. 233 basically used a claw attached to a pivoting arm on Fulcrum. This allowed them to create a dual pickup robot. The design was effective as well, it allowed them to DOMINATE Orlando until their "issue". 254 used a pair of arms last year as their climber.

Arms, while not heavily used recently due to the lack of stacking games, are still useful and an effective mechanism!

Arms and Game Piece manipulation devices would be nice topics as well.

Is it possible for your team to talk about how you design your game strategy, your robot chassis and the game piece manipulating devices to achieve consistent performance (accurate scoring of game pieces)? What methods do your team use to verify that the performance of the robot is consistent?

Orioles and Cardinals are the birds this season.
Not that I wouldn't mind seeing Jays too.
They have 16 games to get their OPR up.

Considering karthik is the head mentor of a team that's won the chairman's award AND world championship, I think he knows what he's talking about . If you want check out his previous seminars, "Effective FIRST Strategies". Both the 2012 and 2013 versions are excellent!


Joke went over my head...

Almost like he's the Chairman of the VEX Robotics and VEX IQ Game Design Committees or something...

Small request... Please do post PowerPoint slides on your website!
