5940 BREAD 1+2 Auto 2023

BREAD has been working on our alpha robot recipe this last week and the loaf has started to rise. We’re excited to share the first taste with everyone!

One of our new goals this season was to produce a functional alpha robot that we could use early on to de-risk particular sub-systems and start learning from playing the game early. Super proud of the work the students have put in since kickoff.

There’s definitely space for even more in auto here… Excited to see what everyone comes up with for Charged Up!

C’mon man. Not even week 3. Some of us are still reading the rules.

[Edit]
Also, just calling it: they made a StarterBot/EveryBot hybrid.

Things are getting spicy in California this year! Excited to see how more teams push the envelope like this for autonomous and hopefully make the perennial elites sweat!

My dog, Toast, highly approves of your autos. :slightly_smiling_face:

Finally a diagonal elevator. I predicted that diagonal elevator would be one of the best possible designs this season and was surprised it took this long for a team to use it.

Pretty sure toasters are not an approved electrical device. 2/10.

I was expecting faster cycle times. But overall, great mechanics- especially loving that manipulator :flushed: :eyes:
