Daly In our qualification matches, we went overall and seeded second, with Team holding first seed. Our stationary hopper panel kept colliding with the field hoppers, which tore our hopper wall. We installed all the bearing blocks and forklift brackets, and began wiring up the comp bot with the IGUS chain. We will have two spools, one on each side. Climber We are using inline elastic to add stretch to the rope.

We also won the Autonomous Award sponsored by Ford, for our unique 4 cube scale autonomous program and scale detection software! This design certainly needs some refinement, but the image below can give you a rough idea of what it looks like. We also developed the state machine for the gear grabber. This is a major step forward since we were able to integrate across multiple subsystems.

Complete designing the new intake prototype.

Limelight is a camera specifically made for FRC, which makes it easier to use, so we have been experimenting with it. Preparing For Competition Intake Today, we worked on fixing the intake after it broke earlier this week. We made an initial prototype which we iterated upon to account for unforeseen difficulties. Moving forward, the plan is figure out how we will release the arm from a stowed position, and run a simulation to make sure the arm can support another whole robot.

Continued Assembly and Programming. We also added linear interpolation to the lookahead point of the last segment of the path. We detected clusters of points in the lidar data based on their distance from each other then drew best fit lines through the clusters. Its about time we had some of our own. Whenever we had alliance partners who could not secure the switch consistently, we ran our autonomous program for the switch to help our alliance partners before the tele-op period.

We realized the best solution for this would be to redesign it, so Andrew and Mani are working on a new CAD. See the image for placement of everything else. To solve this problem, we tried compensating for the increased flywheel speed over time by taking an average speed of the flywheel between shots and using it to adjust our voltage.

Because our robot accelerates extremely quickly with the 6 MiniCIM drivetrain and has a high CG with the elevator, the driver needs to have confident control over the robot's motion to ensure it doesn't tip over and the operator needs to have confident control over the robot's operations to ensure our mechanisms are stowed unless needed and do not accidentally hit parts of the field. We managed to get a fully working autonomous mode that scored a gear, activated the hopper, then shot around 40 balls into the boiler.

And I haven't been able to find anything robkt our rbot.

After prepping everything and waiting for other subsystems to be assembled and attached, we riveted and bolted on the hopper in under 10 minutes to allow media time to take pictures and then carry out any final checks before bag and tag. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We also worked on being able to zoom in and pan around the image of the field, so that it is easier to see, but there are still some bugs with this.

This often works, presumably it forces the index to flush that record.

The roobot is connected to the shooter shaft with a hex coupler and a pulley which rides on a one-way bearing on a shoulder bolt.

We planned for short paths to score cubes Drivebase Task: Hopper Over this weekend, we worked on the hopper redesign. We also started the CAD of the new hopper floor for SFR which has the top rollers and wedges and a center to increase our ball throughput.

Louis Championship with our extraordinary alliance partners, we faced the Houston Championship winning alliance in an intense ftc of 5 matches. We also assembled an intake without the pivot arms and mounted it to programming bot to test out how well it works.

We started the construction of the wedges on the hopper floor. The Red Alliance started off with a significant lead by scoring 50 fuel drc into the boiler, making it an amazing show for the audience to see 3 robots scoring fuel into one boiler at once!

2018 FRC Control System

The rope design has been prototyped. We began designing it in cad but have not laser cut it yet. Everything that we need at competition, which includes the pit, was packed and prepared for being shipped to St.

We anticipate that buider best solution will be to try to implement drop-down omni wheels that we can turn on. More information on the robot.
