nice hand mechanism

awesome. definitely a “hybrid” bot for a hybrid game.

What material do you use for circular grippers that contact the ball ?

The hoops are hollow chrome moly steel tube, bent to a 9" dia circle, which are wrapped in tennis racket grip.

The hoop is welded to a connection piece, which is screwed to the end of 20x20 Bosch extrusion, making either piece able to be swapped out in case of damage.

The following are a couple hybrid options currently programmed for certain starting/ball positions

Knock-off

Pick-off

We prefer the pick-off, as we then have control of the ball immediately following hybrid (where we won’t drop the ball when driving under the overpass as we do in the video), but this will take a bit more programming which we didn’t have time for prior to shipping.

Anyone know if there will be a full/partial practice field at Hartford?

Great videos! I’d like to encourage you to link your videos in at http://www.firstobjective.org.

FIRST Objective is hoping to use videos to encourage more schools to start more FIRST teams.

Thanks!

Here’s one more hybrid video
