2018-2019 Destination: Deep Space

The 2018-2019 Deep Space Competition created a challenge for team 3566. Along with trying to find a way to carry and place a hatch, we also needed to be able to work the robot autonomously. We needed to find a way to see when the sandstorm came, not only that, but we also needed for the robot to be able to work on its own. As the season continued we were able to build a hatch grabber that was able to go to the highest level and release the hatches where we wanted them. We also planned to be able to climb to the third level of the platform, and on competition day we were able to do so. And out autonomous driving abilities did not go unnoticed. At the Granite State Competition, we were able to impress the judges enough to win the autonomous driving award!
