Index of team's post about their robot...

Great Thanks to a lot of team for posting information about their robot, and sharing design ideas. We really do encourage everyone to post about robot design. After all, this competition is really about learning from each other, and inspiration of science and technology. :wink: So don’t be afraid to upload pictures to these online sources, or look at pictures of other robots and use ideas they have. We are better off if everyone learn more in this competition, as participants in this FIRST robotics competition, or as scientist and engineers in this society.

So feel free to share and learn from each other. :wink:

By the way, sorry for not having descriptions of all the posts, but as you can see, there are so many posts to go through… All of these robots are cool in their own way, so look through the posts if you have time. :wink: Also, if I missed anyone, just post a short reply to this thread pointing to the thread you posted…

A solid entry from Technokats (again!). Amazing on-the-fly shifter for 4~6 motors drive train, great traction tank treads, and a huge ball basket capable of scoring 20 balls.

Team 47:
The Chief’s robot! Very fast ball mechanism that scored 19 balls one round. You have to see it to believe it. Too bad the ball harvester and goal grabber isn’t visible in the picture.

Team 56:
Excellent ball robot this year. Can grab two goals, AND capable of scoring huge amount of balls with that giant ball roller

Team 60:
With an Initial inspection of the picture, I thought they are only lifting one side of each goal off the ground… Now that I look closer, both goals seems to be completely off the ground! Very nice looking robot from team 60 (again!) with gear shifter on each wheel.
