Our 2016 robot, Nautilus, was made to score points by breaching defenses and shooting boulders into the high goal.

Drivetrain:

  • 6 wheel tank drive
  • 8″ pneumatic wheels
  • 5ft/second in low gear
  • 15ft/second in high gear

Intake:

  • Articulated via two BAG motors through 150:1 gearboxes
  • PID loop controls position for intaking boulders, resting, and going over obstacles
  • Roller geometry allows for boulders to be picked up from multiple directions

Shooter:

  • Flywheel powered by Mini-CIM geared 4:3
  • Encoder speed control for harder/softer shots
  • Articulating hood tilts up/down to get any shot trajectory
  • Automatic vision tracking enables the turret to lock on to the goal and shoot with the right power
