My team’s original inclination was to design our robot to be able to intake from the high feeder station position in order to use all of the 3 chutes simultaneously. After building our team-version feeder station and having a chance to mess around with putting the balls through the chutes, we’re not so sure that it’s actually faster to mess with putting the balls in separate chutes.
We’re considering using the low feeder station positions which allows a floor intake to be used for feeding.
Our feeder station still needs some work to make it more like the field stations so our testing will continue. In the meantime, I’m wondering if anyone has messed with the official field, or built a feeder station more similar to the official field, that could share a video or comment on the difference between feeding 5 balls through 1 low chute versus feeding 5 balls through the 3 upper chutes.
