During the 2019 season, the Riveters worked on thrilling new robotic developments for the game Destination Deep Space. The SAD and FAD team used their impeccable design creativity to fabricate never before seen robotic features. These new enhancements include a vacuum for the intake of hatch and cargo, a tank drive, an intake arm with mecanum wheels, climb-2 stilts and a pulley system used with the intake arm in order to climb.
At the Jackson competition, each subteam played an important role in winning first place. In addition to the success of the robot, the BAD team was awarded with the Engineering Inspiration Award for their eloquent presentation, highlighting the technical and mechanical capabilities of the robot.
As a reflection of the Riveters hard work, we were invited to worlds where we won the Imagery Award. FIRST Robotics grants this award to the team who “Celebrates attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration of machine and team appearance.”
