2581B – Skyrise

Team B's 2015 robot consisted of a scissor lift with a claw that could pick up a skyrise piece and a cube at the same time. While the base was a difficult platform to build on, the x-base rolled smoothly in all directions, enabling reliable autonomous programs.

The Robot

The robot's shuttle could hold a skyrise in the claw and a cube on the hook directly underneath. The shuttle could be extended and retracted by sprockets and small chain operated by a motor. Over 300 rubber bands assisted the robot's scissor lift on both sides, enabling it to stack up to 6 skyrises.
