An exciting season of robotics competition with our HOT Team !
The HOT Team is back in action! After a year of online robotics, the HOT Team is ready to take on this year’s game! Also known as Rapid React, this year’s game is based on airbourne transportation and even has a hangar for robots to park in at the end of each match. In Rapid React, FIRST robotics teams were challenged to build robots that can intake a game element that is a basketball sized tennis ball. Once the robots intake the game piece, they position themselves to shoot it into a nine foot tall structure positioned in the center of the field. This structure, known as the hub, has a high and low goal robots can score in, with the high goal earning teams two points for each scored game piece while the low goal only earns teams one point for each scored game piece. Towards the end of the game the teams can choose to keep scoring game elements, or if their robot is capable, they can choose to drive over to their team’s hangar positioned in a corner of the field. Upon reaching the hangar, robots can climb horizontal bars that increase in height up to seven feet and seven inches as the robot climbs along them. When the game ends, points are awarded based on the goal and number of scored field elements as well as the position and number of robots completely supported by the bars. After watching the kickoff as a team, the HOT Team met in person and started the engineering design process. First, students and mentors reviewed the different challenges posed by this year’s game and came up with innovative design solutions to tackle these particular problems. Then, mentors collaborated with students to actually start designing and prototyping the robot’s parts. So far in the HOT Team’s build season, we have made important decisions regarding the type of drivetrain we are using and are working on implementing our ideas for an intake to manipulate the game pieces. Everyone is fired up and ready to compete in Rapid React!
