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.
