The Adams Robotics Build Team is just that; it is the team dedicated to the design and creation of the physical robot. Each year, the build team is separated into several smaller teams based on the requirements of the game in order to efficiently build all the mechanisms of the robot. This year the build teams include: Chassis, Disc Shooter, Disc Acquisition, and Climbing Mechanism.
The Chassis Team is in charge of basic frame and drive system of the robot.
The Disc Shooter Team collaborates with the Disc Aquisition Team to develop and build a shooting mechanism that receives and shoots the discs.
The Disc Aquisition Team is designing a mechanism to work in collaboration with the Disc Shooter Team to effectively pick up and deliver discs to the shooter.
The Climbing Mechanism Team is in charge of designing and building a mechanism that can climb the pyramid obstacle efficiently and safely.
The Programming Team is responsible for all computer-software aspects of the robot. This includes learning how to use new software and writing programs to control the robot.
The Controls & Electronics Team focuses on the wiring and electronics of the robot in relation to the field. They work closely with the Programming Team and Driving Team in order to create an easy-to-use and effective control system.
The CAD / Design Team creates both 3D and 2D computer models of our team’s robot design. These designs help us ensure that the robot will work and fit together properly before we physically build it.
The Mentoring Team includes mentoring both the FTC team from Van Hoosen Middle School and the FRC team 3478 The Lambots from Mexico.
The Field Team creates a replica of the field or a replica of part of the field to provide a visual for the build team and a practice environment for drivers.
