A low-profile, agile shooter

2016 Stronghold (2016)

Jaw-Z was designed to participate in the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition challenge, FIRST Stronghold. The robot collected foam balls using an automatically-centering intake and propelled them into a goal 7 feet high, while being able to drive across varied terrain and maneuver sideways thanks to its combination of pneumatic and mecanum wheels. Jaw-Z was able to accomplish all this while being able to compress itself to under 1 foot tall.
