Introduction In The Zone, with its mobile goal scoring methods, got our team thinking about how to get the robot to cross the bars into the point zones with ease. The issue was that the chassis was almost always the same distance from the ground, and this was preventing the robot from moving across the bars that lay in the way. This was because the wheels needed to have a shaft going through the middle, which restricted the maximum height between the chassis and the ground. It was then we turned to the idea of a wheel system that could be attached at any height or location that could turn with no shaft having to run through its center.
