The STEAMWORKS Robot (2017)
Nickname Mechbubbles: This robot performed well and even got close to worlds. A big part of our success was the fantastic intake. This mechanism picked up balls with a foam roller and deposited them into a holding chamber. The agitator fed the balls to the shooter which launched them high in the air. The gear mechanism consisted of two doors that held a gear in place while the robot was in motion. The mechanum drive helped us pick up and shoot balls quickly and accurately.
