Hudson Valley Build and Scrimmage day a success for RoboEpic 5017
After the event, the team reflected on what they learned. They figured out new ways to operate the robot, worked around a non-functional remote, discovered new options for the too-heavy scoop, and observed other robots in action in order to see other strategies and constructions. Most importantly though, they learned that you must have the right set of remotes during the match, or you are trying to drive someone else’s robot! Hilarious!
Oh, one good thing the too-heavy scoop is used for: Turning the robot upright. When they “turtled” the robot, and it actually was driving on its side (nice, 8 wheel drive train good for alternate methods of locomotion!) the heavy basket was used to flip the robot down! Nice Driving and Teamwork!
