1st Drivetrain of the Season

Our first drivetrain of the season is moving on it’s own. With the details of the game still a mystery, we’re just guessing that we’ll need to do some climbing. What kind of rover wouldn’t be expected to do a little wheelin’?

The tracks can articulate on their own, but I think we need to limit how far it can rotate. Once it is on the stop the weight of the robot may help it grip and climb. We know that we can change from a triangle track pattern to a trapezoid to give it some help climbing too.

Here’s a link to a short video of it driving and trying to climb our bolt box.


We’re always open to suggestions. So, please feel free to leave us a comment or shoot us an email. 20180809_201208
