2013 – The Kraken Mk. II

The Kraken Mk. II was created for the FIRST game Ultimate Ascent (you can find more information about the game HERE). This year we focused on the strategy of full-court shooting, so our strategy focuses on driving up to the feeding station and just slinging the discs into the three point goal. We run a custom 13:1 gearbox, with the possibility of a power takeoff, which allows us to switch all power from the CIMs on the drive train to a possible climbing mechanism. We also switched to C++ this year, which allows us to easily download code to the robot in a speedy manner. Below are images and videos (w/ descriptions).
