Franklin Institute Robot Conflict
FRC Team 1640 (Sab-BOT-age) was invited to demonstrate DEWBOT VI (not to mention a kinder, gentler and lower-maintenance version of robotics) at Northeast Robot Club's(NERC) Franklin Institute Robot Conflict on 9-October-2010. DEWBOT very wisely stayed out of the competition cage. FTC Team 3489 (Minds in Gear) also represented FIRST at this robot combat event.
The Robot Conflict was a great event drawing many very cleverly-designed robots.
DEWBOT drew a lot of attention and made some new friends. DEWBOT was the biggest robot there, but with neither saw blades nor hammers, not the most lethal. Pivot drive, though, was a big hit.
Did a lot of kicking. Got in a lot of driving practice. Got some mantenance to do as a result.
