We built our robot, “Sheriff” to compete in FIRST’s 2017 FRC Steamworks competition. He can collect gears and climb ropes! He collects a gear from a hopper on the opponent’s side of the field and then delivers it to the lift station using pistons that open and close doors on our gear mechanism. He can also climb a rope at the end of the match with Velcro wrapped around a wood shaft. The rope sticks to the Velcro on the spinning shaft, and pulls the robot up!
