Atla-Z (2018)

A fast, effective, jack-of-all-trades

2018 Power Up (2018)

Our Power Up robot, Atla-Z, was a quick and effective scale and switch bot. The drivetrain is a six wheel, four CIM, West Coast Drive with four traction wheels in the center and back and two omni wheels in the front, used to make turning smoother. It uses four compliant wheels to quickly intake any cube that it touches. It has a fast two stage elevator that raises more than six feet to easily place cubes on the scale. The intake can both throw out a cube using the compliant wheels and drop a cube using pistons that open up the arms of the intake. For the FIRST Championship, we added a quick climber that was released using a servo. This robot took us to the finals at Central Illinois and survived six competitions, the most any Ctrl-Z robot has done yet!
