2011fieldGame Description – LogoMotion

LogoMotion is played by two competing alliances on a flat 27 x 54 foot field. Each alliance consists of three robots. They compete to hang as many inflated plastic shapes (triangles, circles, and squares) on their grids as they can during a 2 minute and 15 second match. The higher the teams hang their game pieces on their scoring grid, the more points their alliance receives.

The match begins with one 15-second Autonomous Period in which robots operate independently of driver inputs and must hang Ubertubes to score extra points. For the rest of the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their alliance score by hanging as many logo pieces as possible. Any logo piece hung on the same peg as an Ubertube receives double points. If teams assemble the logo pieces on their scoring grids to form the FIRST logo (triangle, circle, square, in a horizontal row in that order), the points for the entire row are doubled.

The match ends with robots deploying minibots, small electro-mechanical assemblies that are independent of the host robot, onto vertical poles. The minibots race to the top of the pole to trigger a sensor and earn additional bonus points.

Robot Description

IMG_1521D-Fence 6.0

The robot was designed to pick up any size tube and then score them on the top row. The robot was able to do this in autonomous and teleoperated mode. The driveline was mecanum wheels with a gyro to allow for field oriented driving. The decision to go this route was to allow for easier alignment for scoring the tubes.

For the North Carolina Regional a mini-bot deployment device was added. The minibot attached to the pole by using a strong magnet. When it attached a limit switch would turn it on and another switch would turn it off at the top. The base for the mini-bot was given to the team by FRC Team 40.
