Robot Design

  • The 2009 FRC game, Lunacy, was played on a slick surface and robot wheels were required to be made of hard plastic. Because of these features in the game, our team thought we should focus on making a maneuverable robot. We hoped to do so by installing a gyro on the robot which would allow us to use what we knew about conservation of angular momentum to improve our robots ability to turn on the field. Implementing this feature required numerous prototypes in an effort to improve the performance of the design. Ultimately a simple flywheel with single axis tilt control was used.
