Food for thought to get discussion started: What do we know our robot does NOT want to be able to do?

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:09:39

Shoot for one - not apart of our strategy

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:10:24

Or, what do YOU think our robot does not want to do?

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:10:46

Great starting point! Quick reminder: we also need to look into the ideas of breaking and defensive blocking. Keep an eye out for those as you read.

Harper Nalley (nalleluc000@frogrock.org)
2017-01-04 21:11:11

What our robot doesn't want to do or what we don't want it to do?

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:12:11

I think those are relatively interchangeable. For clarity let's just say what we don't want it to do.

Harper Nalley (nalleluc000@frogrock.org)
2017-01-04 21:13:49

Okay

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:22:00

I would actually not focus too much on defense

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:22:37

I second that (maybe it could be an option later on if the design was right but not for strategy)

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:23:40

In my opinion, defense will happen primarily as a result of our actions in the game. There is not much we can do to make our robot geared towards defense besides making it heavy and maneuverable.

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:24:18

but I liked Rose's idea of the board behind the robot to make it easier for our alliances to score, and it could also secondarily be used to stop other teams from scoring

πŸ‘ Charlotte
niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:24:35

Yea you're right

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:25:11

Thus, there is no real payout for focusing on defense in our strategy because the advantage is relatively marginal. However, if there is an easy-to-implement solution that requires little or no commitment, I'm all for it.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

Niklas, strategy drives design (although honestly I think it could be very interesting, lets not let it influence our strategy). Thanks for your support though!

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:26:14

I agree with Lucas

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:26:54

I'll try to stick with it πŸ˜„

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:38:48

I would focus on human players scoring points for our teams, so the robot would need a mechanism for dispensing moon rocks through the airlock (I think a shooting system would not be precised enough to score many goals, correct me if you think it would) and I liked Lukas N's idea of heaving a bumper or small guiding board on the front of the robot to push empty cells into the fueling port.

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:41:05

It's certainly something to consider

Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:42:10

I'm a little worried about trying too much to guide the balls via pushing component, just because of visibility and bounciness. I absolutely agree on your point about the human player and the need to address interaction with the airlock

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:42:42

It could also hinder our ability to intake - keep that in mind.

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:43:09

I think th mechanics guys could come up with something

:alexlf: Charlotte, rose_bandrowski
Clio Batali (cliombatali@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 21:44:12

Possibly! As long as it makes sense strategically, then we can totally work with that

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:06:54

Actually, it might bring more points to have the robot dispense all its stored balls at the same time, but we would need to communicate with our alliances to stop moving, so we can fill their containers...

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:09:20

If we can have an alliance member pin an opposing robot long enough for us to dump a load of 3-7 balls in an opposing trailer once or twice during a game, I would be satisfied with our robots scoring, especially considering additional points would be coming from the human players.

binnur (binnur.alkazily@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:22:16

Regarding the ball guiding - are we assuming we need to guide the balls to the human player rather than picking from the floor? I thought our discussion assumed we could collect balls from the floor like a vacuum cleaner and dispense/shoot out.

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:31:29

That was what I was assuming when we were talking about intake. Does anyone have a preference about whether we use and intake or a pushing system?

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:32:20

For clarification- I was expanding on the second part of Binnur's message.

lucas_rininger (lucasrini@gmail.com)
2017-01-04 22:33:38

In response to the first question, if we decide on a pusher, I can't imagine there being an application other than pushing the balls to the human player.

With what else?

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-05 08:27:42

or an intakesystem where you can decide wether the ball should be dispenced in front of the robot(empty cells) or if it should be put into another robot

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-05 08:27:49

(Sorry just read above for context) I agree, I think it allows for more accuracy when delivering the balls

niklas_pruen (niklas.pruen@gmail.com)
2017-01-05 08:28:04

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)

It's okay - it's still a valid conversation

rose_bandrowski (rose.bandrowski@gmail.com)
2017-01-05 08:29:22

Delivering balls to the airlock is a strategy that can be accomplished using intake (which we were considering)

Harper Nalley (nalleluc000@frogrock.org)

It could work if we wanted to have it, looking at chief delphi there seems to be many teams that are going for fuel are also going for a passive gear loader just for if they have extra time.
