No, there will never be an FRC watergame. But, if the impossible happens, we’ll be ready.
My quarantine project has been putting together an electric motor powered kayak. As with most of my non-robotics projects these days, I like to incorporate all the best practices I’ve learned as a robotics mentor. For this project, I incorporated Anderson Powerpole connectors, which we all know and love, for the internal wiring. These are great in every way but one. They aren’t waterproof. So I designed quick disconnect housings that fit over the plugs which protect them from water.
In all probability, these will never be necessary in an FRC robot. But, even if we don’t need the connections to be waterproof, maybe someone can use the design principles in some way. It would be sweet to see something like this used for quickly swapping out bumpers, for instance.
