Overview

Our robot consists of three main components:

The base moves the robot

The claw picks up or lays down the playing pieces

The elevator moves the claw up and down

Base

Two drill motors power four wheels under a 45 cm by 48 cm base. Wheels spin simultaneously through a chain and sprocket drive. When climbing ramps, the 4-wheel drive enhances traction.

Claw

The claw is mostly made of aluminum and is opened and closed by a motor. It is lined with rubber for better grip. It can lift 1.5 kg with ease.

Elevator

The claw holder slides up and down the aluminum poles via a cable pulley system powered by a motor attached to the base. A low center of gravity keeps it stable on the ramp.
