This year's robot was an offensive elevator bot. It was designed to score Power Cubes in the high or low goals of the Scale, Switch or Driver Station. The lifting system makes use of a 2-stage elevator. The second stage is a"carriage" upon which the "pincher" game piece mechanism is mounted.
Banshee utilzes a west coast style 6-wheel tank wheel configuration. It is propelled 2 CIM motors on each side and rolls on 4x 4" Colson wheels and 2x 4" omni wheels (front located).
This year we made use of a Limelight vision camera for target tracking.
Our control system was made up of 2 X-box controllers - one exclusively mapped for driving and the other used to control all other mechanisms.
