After taking a brief, one day break, it’s back to building with only 1 full 24 hour cycle remaining until it’s hands off. As of right now, all that remains is wiring and the implementation of a camera and the newest code. The drive has been successfully tested and the rest of the mechanics are about to be enabled for the final troubleshooting session. The weather outside in SoCal is currently hailing and a majority of the team took a break to go outside and enjoy the rare phenomenon. We will be back with more updates after we finish playing in the rain.
With only 3 days left until the robot has to be finished, time is tight to finish the robot and add all of the finishing touches.
With a practice robot already completed and running, the competition robot is being quickly assembled in the same fashion. All of the major components have been mounted and all that’s really left is to finish up the wiring and push the newest code to the robot. The bumper is almost completed and the claw is being mounted to the arm.
As the next three days unfold, more updates with be posted on this site as well as on our twitter page.
Hello Team 2584,
As of recent, we have changed our meeting times due to unfortunate circumstances outside of our control. Our new times will be from 9:00AM to 6:00PM. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Welcome to the Reseda Regents Robotics first post of the 2018 FRC season.
This year’s game, powerup, consists of multiple yellow cubed that are to be carried around the field and deposited at one of two switches and one scale. The objective is to weigh down your side of the switch/scale with pieces to earn points. Points are earned on a per-second basis when controlling a switch, scale, or both. At the end of the match, players can climb the middle scale for extra points and if all three climb, they can challenge the boss and earn 1 ranking point.
There are multiple powerups available and multiple strengths per powerup available in exchange for cubes. Each powerup has space for 3 cubes underneath it. The amount of cubes inserted determines the level of the powerup. The available powerups are force, boost, and levitate. Force takes control of the scale, switch, or both depending on what level of powerup, boost doubles points from scale, switch, or both depending on the level, and levitate gives one allied robot a free climb. Only one powerup may be used at a time and each powerup may only be used once.
We look forward to a strong 2018 year and wish the best of luck to everyone!
