Pros and Cons

Change Up Intake V1

Pros:

  • Compact so it can save space for other components and doesn't need to fold.

  • The intake is fitted with a 200 rpm motor and a speed ratio of 5:6 making intaking the balls efficient

  • There were 2 rollers on the intake to make sure that when the lift went up, there would be a greater width preventing the ball to come off due to jerky movements.

Cons:

  • Because the intakes were not long enough, any slight movement of the robot would cause the balls to pop out of the intake.

  • Even with the speed gear ratio, the intaking speed felt slow

  • Due to its shortness, the intake could not grab most balls inside the post
