MEEt OUR ROBOT, BEEF BOSS!
We built Beef Boss for this year's First Robotics Competition game, Charged Up. She had a swerve drive and pneumatics (this was our 1st year using pneumatics).
Beef Boss' subsystems included:
a double jointed arm that used pneumatics and a motor with a dead axle to extend and pick up game pieces and then lift the piece to place them
a static claw with wheels that spun to intake game pieces
We competed in the Greater Pittsburgh Regional this year!
