2020 – Darth Rivet
Darth Rivet, our 2020 robot for Infinite Recharge. Primarily designed around a linear ball shooter, with ground level intake system, feeding a conveyor system to rapid-fire 5 balls to the high port, this bot was designed from the chassis up by the team. Much more compact than some of our bots, Darth had a wheeled appendage for manipulating the Control Panel (color wheel), our first foray into vision tracking, and we had intentions to add a climbing system, which became obviously critical in this game in Weeks 1 and 2 of competition. We hope to compete with Darth Rivet at off season competitions. And we look forward to getting back to work on him. We certainly learned a lot building him.
