The Robonauts Everybot, costing less than $1000, is an affordable, competitive, and elegant robot that can be built with only basic tools and items found in either the kit of parts, purchased from your local hardware store, or an online retailer such as AndyMark, VEXpro, REV Robotics, The Thrifty Bot, or McMaster-Carr. We hope to help students and teams find their stride in FRC regardless of their circumstances or practical limitations. In the 2020-2021 season, over a hundred teams built off of the Robonauts Everybot concept, and we are excited for what the 2022 season holds.
Everybot’s mission is to improve FRC students’ experience by enabling any team to field an inexpensive robot capable of competing in local finals and championship-level tournament matches.
In our analysis of RAPID REACT, we’ve found that a short list of robot capabilities accomplishes these goals. We stuck to the most valuable and basic scoring tasks.
The 2022 Robonauts Everybot Robot Will:
- Score 1 pre-loaded Cargo in the Lower Hub
- Taxi from the Tarmac
- Pick up Cargo from the floor
- Hold two Cargo
- Score Cargo in the Lower Hub
- Hang on the Mid Rung
- Play defense while holding two of the opponents’ Cargo
Next weekend, a short video, CAD, bill of materials, software, and documentation of how we built Everybot will be posted here and on our website.
