Robot Demo Checklist

Three levels of robot demos that we can accommodate are:

  • OPTION#1: static robot display - robot free standing on the floor or on a stand, no power sources attached
  • OPTION#2: powered but robot on chocks - robot can perform all operations except for movement across the floor
  • OPTION#3: robot on mini-field - barriers between humans and robot - robot is fully operational and interacting with field elements

Future Project Page

Potential future projects and initial point of contact for the off-season.

Title Category Description Initial point of contact Who is interested?
Software Project Architecture Software Reorganisation code structure for more efficient reuse and speedier development. Liam  
Scouting application Software Software for use at competition by IC. Likely mobile based client with web back end. Maybe open source for all teams? TBA  
Multi Axis Arm Hardware and Software Two projects in one! Hardware project to design and construct the arm then software to get it under control! TBA  
Workshop Code Project Software Software project to develop a gui / dashboard driven system to provide basic motor, actuator control plus electrical and pneumatic testing in the workshop with no compile or deployment of new code :).   TBA  
Robot in 3 hours Hardware and software Proposed project to enable us to visit new teams and get them going - hardware aspect is to define the tools and parts required and software to develop 3x out of the box projects (C++, Java and Labview). TBA  
Pit structure Hardware Design, make or buy TBA  
Robot Trolley 3.0 Hardware Recent trolley enhancements have demonstrated that we have been missing this huge creativity opportunity  TBA  
Control System Design Notes Control Notes to describe stuff that works plus preferred electrical and pneumatic components and solutions Ian  
Develop image processing pipeline that can guide drive base toward target Software Use image processing to select Motion Profile Arc or Motion Magic Arc and drive robot to fully automate hatch loading from 2m. Ian  
Investigate sensor suite Control Identify super set of sensors, sources, pricing and documentation for permitted FRC devices. For example, cameras, ultrasonic, lidar etc. TBA  
Website review and rework Business Strategic review of website purposes and rework to suit.  Sara J
