If the Drive Team and Game Teams are the legs and arms of the robot, the Electrical Team is both the circulatory and nervous systems.

The Electrical Team is responsible for all of the electrical - battery, cRio install, sidecar locations and wiring, Jaguar / Spike placement and wiring, sensors, etc.

The team has a proven ability to fit the electronics into tight spaces. They work with the other teams on making sure there is a smooth integration of electronics into the mechanicals. Sensors from speed to positioning that measure what is happening and report it into the control system is key to any successful robot.

There is a smaller internal team responsible for creating the driver / operator board.
