Learn how we are sustaining robotics for the future and check out our recent news stories.
Our multifaceted engineering team includes five main sub teams. The design team uses SolidWorks to create 3D models of the robot prior to beginning the manufacturing process. The robot is fabricated and assembled by the manufacturing team. Software is responsible for writing the embedded system code to operate the robot in competition. The electrical team wires the motors and controllers to integrate the mechanical systems and the software coding. Safety is a critical aspect of all the teams. The safety team designs safety protocols for the lab and competitions.
Our business team is responsible for developing our team and brand. They accomplish this through preparing materials for competition awards, documenting outreach, working with sponsors, and sustaining public relationships within our community. Last year they created a new website, participated in FRC leadership and training events, and worked with several younger FIRST teams in our school. With these many challenges and accomplishments, it is apparent why our business team opens a door for many students with a variety of talents to be a part of our robotics team.
The key to our success in competitions can be attributed to our strategy team. They are split into two major subsets. The drive team consists of a driver, an operator, and a human player controlling the robot during individual matches. The scouting team watches other FRC teams compete and records qualitative and quantitative data about their robots. The drive captain coordinates between the drive team and the scouting teams to formulate an effective strategy. We also depend on the drive captain to convey our strategy to our alliance partners and convince them to use our strategy.
