I was just wondering if any of you know of an FRC robot that is larger than our robot this year. Since our 2015 season is done, we want to make some memorial plates commemorating our achievement and want to make sure it is a legitimate record. We measured our robot DERP today and ended up with a 31’ 9" total wingspan. Here is a video of it competing at the Oklahoma Regional last weekend for those who havent seen it
That’s pretty incredible. I like the casual reach-over-to-the-step-grab-container that you had going there. Are STEP containers the only containers that you can use, or if someone were to bring you another, could you direct the arm to grab it? Also, really clever to move the robot rather than the stack.
Your robot was defiantly bigger than 1987; however it seemed a lot less efficient than 1987. Is your robot fully automated like 1987 or is it totally driver controlled? 1987 could push out 4 to 4.5 six stacks per match, I was wondering what your max capacity per match was?
could i see a video of 1987 doing this the only video i have of them is getting zero totes stacked. heads up i don’t think they ever did this because then they would be considered better then 1114 who can get 3.5-4 per match and they are the best robot in the competition
First, 1750 you have an amazing robot. I didn’t think it was possible to go to the far scoring platform with a conveyor. I would love to see even more video of it. Congratulations!!!
Also, you definitely win on size in comparison to us. You probably have the record as of now.
1114 caps their stacks while we require the help of another team to cap ours. It is not really comparable as individuals. 1114 wins!
However we were able to push out four 6 six stacks at buckeye (see photo). There were about 25 seconds left when we finished, as our partners had used the other totes. We believe we can push out five 6 stacks and empty the totes from the human loading station, but have not yet achieved in a match.
There is some video of 4 stacks in another thread.
Yes, the end of our crane is actually a suction cup, we can grab containers on their side using that, however, we found that for upright containers it was easier to stick the whole suction cup inside the hole and pull it from there
your robot is cool, and I have a question or two
why not set it up in the 60 seconds before the match instead of doing the things in auto? were you having trouble getting it down to just a minute? (it would let you canburgle in auto)
