rebound rumble





Game Description:

Rebound Rumble was a basketball-based game in which robots were challenged to score points by shooting foam basketballs into goals of various heights. In the middle of the field, robots had the option of crossing to the other side of the field by either going over a four inch tall bump in the center of the field or by crossing see-saw-like bridges. During autonomous, each robot had the option of shooting two balls into any of the desired goals and during the endgame, robots could have earned “seeding” points by balancing on the bridge either by themselves or with one or two other partner robots from the same and/or other alliance.

Design Solution:

Our robot was named RDR, standing for Rough Draft Robot, because the intended competition bot for this season ended up never working quite as well as the practice bot. RDR had a six wheel west-coast drive consisting of four pneumatic wheels in the rear end, and two rubber wheels in the front end. In order to score points, we picked up balls with a conveyer belt system and shot them with two motor powered wheels.
