Speed to Goal?

To assist all teams in their scouting needs, team should probably post their speeds from start to goal. How fast does your robot get out from the start of the match until your robot makes it to the goals?

MOE’s speed is 3-4 seconds.

Team 329 is also 3-5 secs to goal and latched on, this being with a speed of 6fps. Our Mighty Mouse moves much faster though (speed classified )

We get to the goal pretty fast. Not sure of the exact time, but it’s way down there.

Hmm… our orange d00d does about 12, 14fps… distance to the goal is about 18’4"… over x… cross-multiply… carry the one… factor in wind-resistance… carpet friction… calculate drag co-efficients… We can make it in a little under 2 seconds on wheels if we go in a straight line. Then we switch to treads, the robot bounces up, and the power comes in

For a nice pic of our drive system, go here, here (while having some work done on the treads), or here (to see how the robot looks put together, except for the side panels)

We averaged snagging two goals at once from the starting block in 3.2 seconds.

Our high gear is 12 fps, so do the math, its about 2 seconds

From briefly reviewing some our matches, it seems that we collide with the center goal in near 2 seconds flat.

I’d imagine the side goal is a fraction of second faster, since it’s a shorter distance away.

Yes our robot is very vast but parnered with the enineering comes one more factor that could bring that number down to about 1.6seconds…

EXCELLENT DRIVING!

Team 230 latches on to both goals in approximately 3.2 seconds

We can get to the goals within2-4 seconds of the start of a match depending on how good of a launch we usually get usually we get in around 3 seconds.

We’re about 2 - 3 seconds to the goal. At Rutgers, we were one of the quickest to the goal.

just to clear this up a bit… how fast can you achieve in a match, not theoretically how fast can you get to the goals… i’m not implying anything, but well, i don’t remember more than a few people making their grab in less than 5 unless i’m mistaken, but i’ve watched quite a few matches, maybe i missed all you guys (or a couple of ya). i’ll admit i was fixing moe for most of the matches, but i would think that it would have been brought to my attention if someone was incredibly fast at the regionals i attended…(i have watched some web cast videos too)

Insanity is relative.

“Like olympic medals and tennis trophies, all they signified was that the owner had done something of no benefit to anyone more capably than everyone else.”
-Catch 22

i believe the original question asked how fast you can get to the goals… we can do that in about 2 seconds in high gear

our bot auto aligns on the goal and auto engages once we’re aligned… this should happen after about 3 seconds

add about half a second to switch to low gear and SPAM’s in business… 3.5 to 4.5 seconds for the whole process

on an unrelated note… at nationals i hope we’re in the same division as MOE like last year… you guys cheered very loudly and we aim to beat ya out in the spirit department this year!! =-]

Team 180

In about 7 seconds team 639 can get to the goals, get a death grip on them, and move them into our goal zone (it’s all done in one movment, ram and grab).

Go to this stream from the NYC regional, seek to about 52:15 (Quarterfinal 3, Match 3). We’re the bright orange crashers/blocker. It kinda cuts off of us at the begining, so you don’t see EXACTLY how fast we go, but you get the idea. We play around with GRR for a bit (mainly block them from getting out of their homezone). Then it looks like we’re suddenly about to lose. If you watch it to the very end, you can see how we’re both a speed and power bot. In the last 30, 20 seconds, we go onto treads, push a robot with a goal from their scoring position into ours, go back onto wheels, and make it home with a few seconds to sit around and watch the action. This was one of our more fun rounds =D

Because Firestorm 4 has so much torque, it takes us about 5 or 6 seconds to get to the goals. We can get two goals to the fourth zone (and hold them there quite well) as early as maybe 16 seconds into a match.

Well, theoretical speed is one thing, but actual speed would be a little more relevant.

We can get to the goals in about 3 seconds (we normally go about 6 fps) but for some matches at MMR we geared TOBOR V up to get the goals in two seocnds (going at 12 fps).

Dan-
Even though i probably saw the match, i’d like to watch it again, but i don’t have real player.

to All-
Does anyone know where i can get real player from? whenever i search, i get some real one player, which apparently costs money, hence the FREE 14 day trial. i don’t want to pay (seeing as i have no money :p), and all i want is the original real player so i can watch the movie. thanks in advance.

At the West Michigan Regional, our average time to the goals was 2.75 s when we were going for two goals. Unfortunately, our goal latch mechanism wasn’t working very well so we lost the goals a number of times even though we got there first.

The good news is that we’ve already made a fix that works wonderfully so we shouldn’t have any goal latching problems at nationals.

Can’t wait for Disney!

I see that speed is one thing but to be able to grab the goal with as much speed is another.

We took alot of goals away from teams because they were slow on grabbing it.

We were quick but we were faster grabing the goal and running with it.

the fastest team might of beat us to the goal but the time it took us to get there and pull away the other team had no chance for it.

And if they did grab it we pulled them away very quickly.
