This year’s robot has five main subsystems:
- Drive chassis
Four GoBilda 5302 series motors with right angle gear drives to four GoBilda Mecanum wheels.
- Ring intake system
A set of rollers that float near the floor and pull rings into the conveyor. The driver of the robot can reverse the rollers if a ring gets jammed.
- Ring conveyor system
Rings captured by the intake rollers are guided up a ramp by a set of belts and delivered to the shooter bucket.
- Ring shooter
The ring shooter consists of a bucket capable of holding three rings, a spinning wheel just ahead of where the rings rest, and a servo arm that can push the bottom ring in the stack into the spinner.
- Wobble goal grabber
This is an arm that can be deployed to grab a wobble goal. A servo gripper arm secures the goal and allows it to be carried and dropped over the back wall.
