Team 2840’s 2009 robot, as of yet unnamed, undergoes drive testing prior to shipping. We have conveyor-belt ground pickup, a pneumatic bucket with an 8+ ball capacity, and a four-wheel-drive linked steering drive base.
Our steering system requires a little explanation. Our team has a tendency to describe it as an Ackerman steering system, but it can also do a high-speed turn-in-place when both sides are angled in opposite directions, dragging the trailer along with it.

How much does it weigh?

We weigh in at 116 pounds without the bumpers or the battery. There are a few small adjustments and additions that we have planned for the regional,but those shouldn’t take us over the weight limit.

How many balls can it hold?
