2016 FRC Season Robot

For the 2016 FRC competition, we made a defense/breaching robot, Baby Bahr. Our robot was a fully custom chassis that was welded in house. Baby Bahr had a wedge (an arm) to lift the Portcullis.  Our robot could also get over the Rough Terrain, Moat, Rock Wall, and Ramparts alone without other teams. We were able to get over both the Sally Port and the Drawbridge with teamwork from our alliance. One of the things we planned in our design was making the robot small and compact, making it able to fit under the Low Bar.

In 2016, we had a great season-scoring well in the regional competition in Duluth. We were the 4th seed after qualifications, making us an alliance captain. We made it to the semifinals along with partners 876 and 3042, moving us onto the state competition in Minneapolis.

We also participated in the 2016 Minnesota Robotics Invitational in Roseville, hosted by the FireBears team #2846 in October 2016.  We placed 10th out of 35 teams.

Without help, we were able to breach:

  • Low Bar
  • Rough Terrain
  • Moat
  • Rock Wall
  • Ramparts
  • Portcullis

With help, we were able to breach:

  • Drawbridge
  • Sally Port
