The Robonauts Everybot, with a final budget of $1000, is an affordable, robust, and simplistic robot that can be built with nothing but basic tools and items found in either the kit of parts, purchased from your local hardware store, or FRC retailer such as Andymark and VEXPro.
In our analysis of FIRST Power Up, we’ve found that a short list of robot capabilities will define a robot capable of playing in a regional finals match or have a place on an alliance at a championship. We stuck to the most valuable and basic scoring tasks.
The 2018 Robonauts Everybot Robot Will:
· Deposit cubes in the exchange
· Place cubes on a switch
· Accept cubes from the portal
· Be able to be lifted by an alliance partner for climb points
· Cross the auto line during autonomous
After build week 1, a short video, CAD, and documentation of how we built Everybot will be posted here.
