LOGO MOTION

Honoring Jack Kamen

The Challenge

The point of LOGO MOTION was to encourage cooperation amongst the levels of FIRST robotics teams. In order to score points, robots could hang inner tubes in the shapes of a triangle, circle, and square (representing the FIRST logo) off of PVC pegs at various heights; the higher the peg, the more points it was worth. If a FIRST logo was made efficiently, then the points scored on that row doubled. During autonomous, teams were able to pre-program their robot to hang a special yellow uber-tube which would double that peg’s total worth in points. The endgame featured a mini-bot race in which the bot that reached the top of a ten foot pole first got the most points.

Grab'n'Go

Our Solution

Grab'n'Go has a long jointed arm and claw to scoop up the inner tubes and place them on the desired peg for maximum points. Our mini-bot used a magnetic attatchment system and raced up the pole using two motors. We still use Grab'n'Go at community events for handing out candy or balloons.
