2016-2017 Velocity Vortex

Our Robot

Velocity Vortex was our rookie year. We focused primarily on autonomous and capping. Our robot, Argo, was able to successfully claim both beacons during autonomous and park. During tele-op, Argo focused on defending beacons. We custom designed and 3D printed beacons pushers, which were very reliable. During end game, we lifted the yoga ball and capped the vortex with a high success rate.
