Our 2018 competition robot, "JMH", was equipped with a smooth elevator system to collect cubes off the ground and place them into either a switch, scale, or vault. "JMH" was able to consistently score points in both autonomous and teleoperated mode with the help of our skilled driver.
“JMH” scored using a system equipped with an elevator and intake. The intake used wheels rotating one way to grip yellow power-up cubes and wheels rotating the opposite direction to release the cubes. After clasping a cube, the robot would raise the elevator to the level of the switch, vault, or scale and release it to score points or use power-ups. The driver had full control of the intake and elevator to ensure accurate placement.
