Re: FVC 1712's Autonomous

Very impressive! I suspected that method of ball delivery would be too complex to work well, but you guys have shown otherwise. Great work, and good luck at your competition!

Re: FVC 1712's Autonomous

Thank you for all the praise! Our auto is not done yet however... there is now a top secret addition to the robot. The team will be at the Diamond State Vex Regional Championship (formerly the Delaware State Regional). Hope to see you all there.

Re: FVC 1712's Autonomous

Good luck! It looks awesome! Like someone said, driving forwards after scoring and getting more balls, or just into the middle of the field, can prove to be quite effective.

Re: FVC 1712's Autonomous

That is very similar (in both design and autonomous) to FVC 116 (our upper segment of the arm rotates into position differently). My biggest concern would be with after autonomous. We originally had a herding system almost identical to that, and found that it often struggled picking up balls as the match progressed. We have modified our herding system for Diamond State though.
