The Robot Challenge
The Sentinel's robot, Ana, went through many, many changes. The base robot itself was probably rebuilt 30 times, but the accessories that were used to attach to the robot and help it to complete the tasks were incredibly intricate and extensive and there were quite a few of them. The team's goals were to:
- complete the full 400 points
- use pneumatics in their design process to learn how to use them
- design the fastest way to get the robot to the "hand" or patent
Below are some pictures that were taken along the way. Many of the team's ideas were reworked after competitions to be more innovative, strategic or efficient. You will notice the differrence in some of these attachments in the video below.
