Tipping Point Power Arm V1

Pros and Cons

  • Pros:

  • We plan on using 1, 100 rpm motors with a torque gear ratio of 9:1 to provide ample power to lift the mobile goals

  • The grabber fits the shape pf the mobile goal to maintain a stable grab

  • Very compact so there's space for other components 

  • When the mobile goals are grabbed and raised, it will be parallel to the ground

  • Cons:

  • Due to the high gear ratio, the power arm may move very slowly

  • The power arm may not always grab the mobile goals due to the high precision required to align the mobile goal
