PROJECT: AERIAL ASSIST℠
AERIAL ASSIST℠ is played by two competing Alliances of three robots each on a flat 25’ x 54’ foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls over the truss and into the goals as possible during the match. There is an Autonomous Period in which robots operate independently of driver. Alliances receive large bonuses for “assists,” which are earned for each robot that has possession of the ball in a zone as the ball moves down the field. Nicolet FEAR 4786 played a large roll in each of the competitions they participated in. Our main goal when building the robot was to score in the high goal. We created a catapult type robot, but due to mechanical issues, we we’re only able to push the balls into the lower goals. Which proved quite successful in our alliances and competitions we attended.
