Robots and Recycling

It’s 2015 and everything is changing for this year’s FRC(First Robotics Competition) game. “Recycle Rush” is the most innovative game in the sequence of past FRC games. In past years, a red alliance and a blue alliance would compete against each other to score the most points; however, this year there is no winning or losing. Instead, it is a contest to see who can score the most amount of points per game, and their average cumulative scores will determine their standing overall. To score, the robot must move totes onto scoring platforms, place recycling bins on top of totes, or place pool noodles inside of recycling bins. Our challenge is to construct a robot that synergizes well with robots with any of these capabilities.
