Tennis Ball Retriever


Entry ID #: 238

My entry for the Future Foundation Design Challenge is a tennis ball retriever. This robot is operated remotely with a VEX Cortex and VEXnet joystick. A v-shaped funnel guides the tennis balls to the intake rollers which are powered by two motors. Another motor powers a chain that pulls the tennis balls up a chute which dumps them into a basket. The rear omni wheels are powered by two motors programmed for tank controls.


There is nothing here.

that reminds me a lot of an old robot of our teams. But it looks really cool
