Re: pic: Team 1114 - Simbot SS

It was amazing at Midwest. So, I gotta ask....

What powers the launcher?

What powers drive? What speed? Is the robot underweight?

Also, can you explain the teaser?

Those who haven't seen the video of this thing should check it out on the blue alliance.

1114 has done it again. Look out Einstein, here they come.

Re: pic: Team 1114 - Simbot SS

As I commented in another thread, the best way I could ever see to describe your amazingly simple robot came to my from the quote bar:

"... simple things can amaze me." - Andy Baker

Since I'm a programmer, I'd love to add to Adam's questions (please? ):

How much feedback to you have to control the drive train? The arm/grabebr mechanism?

How do you control the Hybrid mode? What commands does the Robo-coach (if used, but I assume you do) give?

Thanks, and congratulations on building an incredible robot. I hope I / we can go to Atlanta this year, if just to stare at your (and others, of coutse) robot(s).

Re: pic: Team 1114 - Simbot SS

can anyone enlighten me on how their shooter works? all i can tell from the pics is that its very thin and pokey.

I watched some videos, and the pokey thing goes out very fast, and then retracts quite slowly. im assuming thats a characteristic exhibited by some sort of windup/retraction system with some sort of tensioning/launching system (if it were pure pneumatics, for example, it should have retracted just as fast)

Me: Karthik, can I see the robot?
Karthik: NO.

Like others have asked, please elaborate on your shooting mechanism. If you can share close pictures of your mechanism, it would be much appreciated.

Re: pic: Team 1114 - Simbot SS

The names says it all. Simbot-"simple"
Its an understatement to say that any team probably could have built this thing/similar design had they seen this from day 1 of build season.
Their design and game approach is something worth studying. Write a book! It will make you folks rich......

Re: pic: Team 1114 - Simbot SS

The shooter is wound up using surgical tubing. When the arm is pulled back, the surgical tubing is tensioned. If I remember right, I think they used a dog gear as a firing mechanism... but that may be someone else.

Worked very effectively though and their drivers were about as good as it gets).
