Cargo Demo Karthik Nice simple intake. Like that it's wide. Teams can take this further by doing some work to center the ball
Cargo Demo Mason Good use of chain and floating sprockets to adjust for center-to-center sprocket lengths. Overall the concpet is very simpale and effective. Having a wide mouth, gives the driver much more tolerance for scoring.
Cargo Explanation Karthik Great explanation of their design choices. This video is a real educational resource
Cargo Explanation Mason Good analyis and summary
Drivetrain Karthik Very well built drivetrain. For teams not wanting to use the KoP drive this year, emulating this setup would be a great plan. Big fan of the 6" pneumatic wheels
Drivetrain Mason Very strong example set here.
HAB Level 2 Karthik Using the Hatch mech to lift the robot to climb Level 2 is smart. Multi-function mechanisms can really simplify robots. The pneumatic wheels help here, a lot
HAB Level 2 Mason Very reliable looking solution. Kudos to the team for using mechanisms that have other functions on the robot.

HAB Level 2 Explanation Mason Good analysis
Hatch Demo Karthik The geometry is optimized wll for both floor and loading station usage
Hatch Demo Mason The motor controlled wrist adds more complexity with limited benefit given the range of motion, consider pnuematic pistons as an improvment for a simpler and more robust robot. Velcro may get stuck on the carper if it misfires.

Overall Karthik This robot is so simple but packs in a lot of functionality. A great example for teams who are in a time/money crunch. This design can play the game at a very high level
Overall Mason Lots of simple solutions here. The goals set by the team allowed them to build a very minmal but high functioning robot.
