Arm & Gripper Update

We have made changes to the gripper and arm that will significantly impact the structural integrity and modularity of the robot. Custom parts that can easily be changed when something breaks are very convenient at the competition. Now we are ready to set it onto our swerve frame.

Utah Regionals 2023 overview

Going into this competition we knew there would be lots to learn. We need to make our robot much heavier, make better joints for the wrist, and try to socialize with other teams. This was an amazing experience! We hope to really make an impression next comp with our finished design.

Arm + Wrist Update

At the moment, we are not going to have enough time to put the kinematic arm onto our robot before Utah Regionals. So instead, we had to quickly build a still-arm that drops the wrist using pneumatics along with the gripper. Hopefully for the Idaho Regionals we have the full arm!

Functioning Swerve Drives

After five weeks of hard work, problem-solving, and determination, our exceptional programming “team” (consisting of one student) has given our drivers a working Swerve Drive chain! This is exceptional for a rookie team, a very daunting task for teams to achieve.
