Encyclopedia Robotica Volume 2
A successor to the 2011 GOFIRST “Encyclopedia Robotica” covering drive bases, middle stages, and end effectors in general and specific (with photos).
In the 2011 FRC / CARD season, GOFIRST released the “Encyclopedia Robotica”, a guide explaining the subsystems that teams frequently built and their variations. Arms, roller intakes, drive bases of varying sorts, all with pictures and diagrams.
The PDF copy was subsequently lost in a website overhaul, but a friend gave me a PDF he found and I set about to update it for the more recent FRC design trends with recent references.
The original PDF can be seen here.
A Google Doc version of Volume 2 be copied from here.
Special thanks to Nick Hammes for finding an original PDF that I could base this off of / copy from.
