Just like that, we're flying at high speed into another action-packed season for our team- Pittsford Robotics Team 3181! The 2022 Twitch kickoff finally revealed the challenge behind FIRST's teasers, including a brand new playing field and hub.
At the start of a round, all robots will begin stationed around a hub and can earn points by scoring balls in either the upper or lower hub. Each round will begin with 15 seconds of an autonomous period (driver-free), in which robots can score with their one preloaded cargo (oversized tennis balls) and with surrounding cargo. Afterward, our drivers can control the robots for the remaining 2 minutes & 45 seconds to score cargo 2 at a time, then climb as many rungs of the hangar as possible, the higher being the most points!
Our electrical, programming, and mechanical teams have been hard at work designing a robot for regionals in March! The art & media team has been busy designing team t-shirts, banners, and pins, while the business team has been organizing and reaching out sponsors.
