- 6 pneumatic wheels
- Raised front wheel for easy defense crossing
- Flywheel shooter with ability to shoot from any angle in the courtyard
- Vision tracks high goals to make consistent shots
- Though this year's game included a climbing aspect, our team was never able to climb in competition. We did, however, try several different prototypes for climbing
- A springloaded arm system using the tension of surgical tubing to push an arm up to the bar and hook on
- A hook launched by a spring that would hit the hanging bar and snap closed over it
- Both of the above delivery systems would bring a rope up to the top and the robot would winch itself up with the rope from a motor mounted approximately in the center of the robot.
- Can do all defenses except drawbridge without other assistance
- Can shoot high and low goals
- Vision tracks goals for accurate shots every time
- Several autonomous modes including crossing a defense and shooting in the high goal
- Climbing capabilities
- Can cross all defenses except for Portcullis, Sally Door, and Drawbridge
- NavX attached to the robot detects when we have finished crossing a defense
- Laser Rangefinder stops the robot once it reaches the pre-determined distance from the wall
- Uses vision tracking to aim and make a high goal shot after crossing the defense
- Main robot code written in Java
- Held in a Github repository to allow version control and the swapping of laptops for coding
- Vision Tracking written in Python
The team won the 2016 Albany Districts Event with Khanquistador, as well as winning the Industrial Design award at the Columbus District Event.
