After several long weeks of wasting time, I finally convinced my rookie team to decide to create a basic robot to accomplish basic tasks in the game, but now we are stuck with trying to figure out how to get onto HAB Level 2. To be clear, we are using the 6-wheel Tank Drive KOP drivetrain.
Currently, our priorities consist of:
-Scoring hatches on the lowest level (We attach the hatch to metal bars with the hook/loop, and a small pneumatic contraption will push the hatch off of our robot, leaving it stuck)
-HAB Level 2
-Vision Tracking / Tape Sensors
-Cargo (We are thinking about doing a simple ‘bucket’ design where the ball falls into a container and the container is then moved to be facing towards the holes in the rocket/cargo ship. A small pneumatic contraption could push the ball into the lowest levels of the rocket/cargo ship)
We are wondering if you can come up with a method for our bot to get onto the HAB Level 2 besides just sending it full speed into the HAB and hoping it gets over lol.
Also, if you want, please evaluate our goals and the methods which we think we can achieve them.
