Sweepy Bot

mathwiz20

Building is never a clean process. At the end of every day, whether it be VEX, FRC, Botball or FLL, we find ourselves sitting in a pile of nuts, screws, and other parts that spread themselves in a fine carpet over the floor. We don’t mind it, but the teachers and staff certainly do. To appease them, we end up running around like headless chickens randomly stuffing as many parts as we can into our closet so they can safely walk by. To kill two birds with one bot, we designed a mechanism to do so and to clean up after itself.

Envirobot Recycler

user10401

The Enviobot Recycler is a mini robot that recycles standard size pop cans, easily and efficiently. The way in which the robot works is that we have a motorized guide with feelers that picks up the can and moves it to the crusher system. We designed the crusher to squeeze the can by moving the guide rail to the crusher component thereby crushing the can completely. Then, the rail guide lowers and then spews out the can into the recycling bin. With the importance of recycling today, we see every household in the near future having a mini recycler which would be a useful household item...
