2012fieldGame Description – Rebound Rumble

Rebound Rumble is a game played on a 54′ x 27′ field. Two alliances of three teams compete against each other to score the most amount of points by shooting foam basketballs into hoops. At the end of the match robots would balance on bridges in the middle of the field to gain additional points. Balancing on the middle middle bridge, call the Coopertition Bridge, with the opposing alliance resulted in an additional win for both teams.

Robot Description

IMG_2950D-Fence 7.0

The robot was designed to pick up balls from the ground and then shoot them into the top hoop from right infront of the fender. The robot was oriented sideways so it could easily align with the hoop. In autonomous the robot would drive straight and then turn based off of a timer.

On the side of the robot was an ultrasonic sensor that would turn a green light on when it was close to the fender which helped the driver determine if they were close enough to shoot.

When we arrived at the WPI Regional the “ka-chop” was added to the robot. This toggled the bridge so that the robot could drive up it.

For BattleCry@WPI an ultrasonic sensor was added to the front to allow for the robot to turn based on distance instead of being timed. Also green under-carriage lighting was added for looks.
