A new year; a new challenge. This year, we had to design a bot that was able to stack totes and barrels. After a few different design ideas, we decided on a claw that was able to lift both barrels and totes, and stack 2-3 totes with a barrel on top.
Here’s a link to the manual for the rules for this challenge- http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/competition-manual-and-related-documents.
