FRC 1640's robot for the 2020 game: Infinite Recharge.


2020 has a new model build season with no stop-build date, no bagging and tagging. Basically following the FTC model. Can 1640 adjust? Can the mentors adapt? With no clock to tell us to stop building, will be simply work on the robot until we die? Do we still build two robots? Stay tuned!

Design Details

Ball Shooter
An early Shooter Arm design concept was explored at an early point. This comprised an arm containing a straight, 5-ball magazine with a 2-wheel shooter at the end. The arm also was to include the switch-climbing and spinner mechanisms. The Shooter arm could be lowered to allow easy trench passage. This approach was abandoned as it was understood that its shooting could be blocked relatively easily.
