Boulder Acquisition

2016BoulderAquProtoWith a narrow bot, we had to figure out a way to get the boulder from the floor, over the bumpers, into our robot, and to the launch position. Here’s step one, a rotating arm that reaches over the bumper (the red pad) a rotating column that moves the ball to a pinch point (the wire.) An arm then rotates up, with the ball, over the bumper and into our bot.

It worked great as a prototype.
