If we we could compile the pictures of every robot in the Newton Division, it would be to the mutual benefit of all teams in the division. I will be maintaining this thread. At the bare minimum, a picture of your robot is great. If you have pictures of other teams that you attended events with, that would be even more excellent. Let’s get started with just my team, and make it to 99!:
Videos are good too, but pictures are better for peoples scouting databases.
It’s got all the fancy bells and whistles – external collector and bridge manipulator, highly accurate, crosses barrier, mechanical brakes, occupies a smaller footprint on the bridge than a wide robot, etc.
Hey guys, the Power Hawks Team 1111 is very excited to compete in Newton! I have a feeling whoever Newton sends to Einstein will have a good chance of winning it all with the strength of the division.
At Chesapeake we had problems transitioning from hybrid to tele-op due to a motor still running on our CAN network that caused us to have to reset the router and miss the first part of some of our early matches and not run our hybrid mode in later matches. We have fixed the problem and have a new middle side-hoop autonomous.
We have worked hard with our 2nd robot to practice quick and accurate 2 pt hoop fender shooting but are also capable of shooting for the top hoop or from farther away.
Our 256:1 geared bridge tipper can lower the competition weight bridge with ease and also easily raise the co-op bridge for teams on the other side to get on. We balanced our last 6 matches in a row at Chesapeake and have practiced on our competition weighted bridge at home with our 2nd robot.
Our long robot has a back-weighted CG so that we can hang the entire front half of our robot off the bridge for triple balancing. We only take up 24" of the bridge. See the triple balance pictures from our shop below.
We are a narrow robot, 31" long, and we have a 2 wheeled shooter. We have a very solid and easily used bridge arm that never fails us. We pride ourselves in our shooting consistency, shown very well in this video of us from Connecticut regional.
Our aiming should be much faster at champs. We are also hoping to have some other improvements from what’s currently there, but we’ll see :rolleyes:
