 Meet our 2019 robot, Deep Spacito!

 Our Robot's Design

Drivetrain:

West Coast Tank Drive which proved to be relatively simple, sub team friendly, and provided good serviceability

Drop center configuration that promised resistibility to pushing and potential for increased mechanical grip

Six plastic traction wheels with single-speed gearboxes.

 

 

 

Appendages:

Three-stage elevator powered by a pulley system consisting of a drum and spectra cable. Utilizes a bearing system for smooth expansions and contractions. Hard stops prevent over-expansions and over-contractions.

Two-stage pneumatic puncher is attached to the elevator for hatch panel pickup from the human player station. Utilizes leading edge hockey puck technology as well as a grabbing system to lock hatch panels in place.

Roller-powered Cargo Ball mechanism. Simple-design aluminum sheet metal used to hold cargo in during traveling
