After showing you the progress of the field construction last week, today we are going to talk about our Intake. The Intake is the robot’s mechanism that picks up balls on the field.
In the previous games, we already had an Intake that we have decided to update. Indeed, it’s important to consider that the balls are much bigger in this year’s game.
The Intake consists in 3 rows of wheels that turn in the same direction, so as to suck up the balls and center them.
The Intake has to be able to rise and fall continuously to be able to grip the balls and take them to the next mechanism.
See you next week for an update on our team’s progress !
