 Meet our 2020 robot, The Kracken!

 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 two single-speed gearboxes.

 

 

 

Appendages:

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

Wristed claw with roller intake to capture cube. Powered by one 775 motor on each arm, with wheels connected by chain.
