The Scoosh - a novel approach to linear motion
By utilizing a specially curved surface, we were able to convert rotational motion of a NeveRest60 motor into linear motion of the FRC 2017 gear onto the peg. This solution is lightweight, and has a “constant gear ratio” of gear translation to angle of rotation of the motor.
Presentation of a novel means of converting rotational motor motion into translational gear motion for the FRC 2017 game. Appropriately scaled, this mechanism would also have been useful for previous “peg” games, such as Rack ‘N’ Roll and LogoMotion.
